Coming from the Speyside of Scotland, this Single Malt can be characterized as rather mild, fruity and inoffensive. Cragganmore 12 is underestimated because it's not a very demanding and expressive whisky. Nevertheless, it has a decent complexity and is well-balanced. The nose is smooth, grainy and dominated by fruits with heather honey and toffee. It tastes crisp and fruity in the arrival, turning slightly dry and bitter in the development. Although the finish is rather short and not very substantial, this whisky has something to offer - if given the chance.

Finish: Oak Malt Sherry Herbs Fruit Pineapple Dark Chocolate Coffee

Comment: Very complex and is a very aromatic speyside malt. The finishing is not long enough to savour, but is not too short. The balancing is a bit off to floral and tropical fruits, if it wasn't because of the maltiness I would have thought it was not a whisky but a brandy instead. Overall a very good speyside if you have enough time to appreciate the complexity of this malt. Just a bit off balanced for me.
