The tasting was held in the luxurious surroundings of the Cragganmore Club Room. A romantic room filled with the smell of history, old furniture, good whisky and Kevin. A lovely range of whisky with good looking delights, mouthwatering. But let’s move on to the whisky and the tastingnotes. Cragganmore gained one more fan since, me.

This ‘The Exceptional’ Tweet tasting was stunning. I was really looking forward to this night (October 5th at 7pm BST). This night we sampled the 1st edition of the blend, the 2nd edition of the Malt and the 3rd edition of the Grain. These 3 are all bottled in 2016 and created by Don Sutcliffe.
