Cragganmore SMWS 37.82 “Curious Complexity”

Thanks to /u/twiddleDD for the sample Continuing my ongoing series that I’m calling “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife goes through my backlog of SMWS (Scotch Malt Whisky Society) samples that I haven’t reviewed yet, pours them blind, and then I review it blind. Cragganmore is one of those distilleries like that one cool friend you hung out with for two parties, and had a great… Continue reading Cragganmore SMWS 37.82 “Curious Complexity”

Cragganmore SMWS 37.54 “A contradictory dram”

Thanks to /u/xile_ for bringing this bottle to a recent light drinking time with friends. Cragganmore and I are a contradictory pair at the best of times.

Especially for the $85 price tag. So during a swap I decided I’ll try the 21 year old. You know, that special edition that came out, from Diageo awhile… Continue reading Cragganmore 1985 Murray McDavid Mission Gold Series

Cragganmore Special Edition 10 year Cask Strength [Feather’s Flight Review Set #4]

So here’s the quick deal: Sometimes I go out to my favourite Scotch pub, Feather’s Pub[1] , and I have some drams because it’s a special occasion. I drink a lot of water between them, have bread, have a great time, and write some reviews, which I then put under a special header. Capiche? I think Speyside is the one region that gets around more… Continue reading Cragganmore Special Edition 10 year Cask Strength [Feather’s Flight Review Set #4]
