Member Ratings and Notes
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: Nice.  Sweet and springy.  It's like what we all imagine running through a field of spring flowers (but in reality it usually blows).


p: Flowers, me dancing naked in a field supermodels dancing naked in a field.  Utterly pleasant.  Not too exceptional.  Finish is warming.

It's the "I don't have or need a date tonight" scotch.


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.
