Cragganmore Prima & Ultima 48 year old 1971 (Cask No. 2301), 43.7%

Price: $25,899 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Rich sherried fruit aromas, machine oil, camphor, coal dust, marzipan, and freshly
polished oak. Full and sweet on the early palate, then drying, with black coffee,
licorice, and the distinctive flavor of coal. A long finish, with dark chocolate and
cherry liqueur. No negative oakiness despite its age. Superb! Price is for entire Prima
& Ultima Collection, of which this whisky is a part. (352 bottles) £20,000
