I really enjoy Cragganmore 12 year - here are my comments: Cragganmore 12year is a delight. It's very smooth, somewhere in between light to medium body. Sweet wood smoke. I liked it so much, I bought it the day after I tried it at a Scotch tasting! I also really enjoy the whole Glenmorangie line especially D'or, Quinta Ruban and the LaSanta. If Glenmorangie is what you like, then you can't go wrong with any of these.
As for Johnnie Walker Black - Talisker is one of the contributing whiskies (which is very earthy, smoke, peppery) and I can certainly taste it with each sip. As for the Blue Label - the first time I tasted it, sure was a nice treat. It's creamy, hint of almonds. Very smooth, very enjoyable.
