Cane sugar with little else on the nose - almost nonexistent. Palate kind of similar. Sweetness runs through the warmth but so little else. A hint of oak spice and maybe some light vanilla…..not bad…but needs much more of whatever it is that it has.
N: Grassy Speysider. Citrus. P: Quite sweet in contrast to the nose, which works quite well. F: Some interesting fruit here, apricots and oranges. I've always found Craggenmore to be a little weak for my taste, and this one is too, although certainly more tasty that the 12 year.
