Cragganmore is a Speyside whisky built in Ballindalloch, a site chosen not only for its proximity to the River Spey, but also to the Strathspey railway line. Aged in 2nd fill bourbon barrels, the whisky is slightly peated and is a component for blending in Johnnie Walker, White Horse, and Old Parr whiskies.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky is quite the hidden gem in Diageo's Malt Whisky Collection. The whisky is filled with heather, honey, nuts, and pears. Delicate smoke comes in on the palate along with dried cherry and more honeyed nuts. It is a shame that this whisky doesn't get heralded more than it does, but then again, maybe it's okay to keep this one a secret."
