It isn't often that you will find a Scotch whisky finished in Port Wine casks, but that is just what is done here. The Port Wine casks, or pipes as they are called, are much larger than a standard barrel with the former yielding close to 500 liters and the latter only 120 liters. Port Wine provides a fruit filled profile and will present a pink tint to the dram.

Tasting Notes

"The malty nature to the standard bottling pairs nicely with the fruity port wine just like chocolate and raspberries make a great duo. Cragganmore uses lightly peated malt and the fruit hasn't completely smothered it."
