First Impression: Cragganmore Seduction 1997

[45%・19 Years Old・Silvano Samaroli Bottling・Cask 1139]

Nose:

Crisp waxy red apples on the nose, the fragrant and buttery aromas are very breathable, with none of the volatile irritants and none of the spices that need to be overlooked, just blissfulness in its purest form.

Palate & Finish:

A sense of tranquility on the palate, it’s juicy and delicious, fresh mints on pineapple piña colada with just a whiff of spices coming on faintly.

The malt has dissolved into the mellow floral note, dried white peaches interacting with a toasted weetbix note that leaves a grainy mouthfeel..

Thoughts:

The nose is absolutely gorgeous, the body is well constructed.  It’s thoroughly enjoyable and evokes something more than the mere feeling of satisfaction.
