The Dramble reviews SMWS 37.114 Enticing and beguiling

Bottle Name: 37.114 Enticing and beguiling

ABV: 55.5%
Distillery: Cragganmore
Bottler: Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Region: Speyside

13 years in ex-bourbon and then 2 more years in 1st fill PX for this Cragganmore. Deep, Rich & Dried Fruits profile.

Nose: Sweet and perfumed with rose water, potpourri and toffee. Spiced (cinnamon and ginger) plum tart is joined by wheaty multi-grain bread and a slight sense of mustiness attics. Dilution emphasises sugars and spice with cocoa nibs, gingerbread and muscavado sugar.

Taste: A bold and syrupy with maple syrup, high cocoa solids chocolate, molasses and reduced red berry fruits. There’s a combination of intense sugared fruitiness and dryness here – it doesn’t come across as overtly woody, but the tannins can be felt around the teeth and gums. Water softens things up with tinned stone fruits, sponge cake and cracked pepper.

Finish: Medium to long, drying with chocolate and coffee beans.

Solid well-sherried Cragganmore. A bit on the dry side, but with plenty of unctuousness and deep spiced fruit.

Score: 85/100
