12 Year Single Malt Set // Set of 2 // 750 ml Each
Founded by brothers John and George Rate in 1837, the Glenkinchie Distillery sits in the valley of the Kinchie Burn, nearby the village of Pencaitland, East Lothian. The Glenkinchie distillery shut down in 1853, but in 1890, the site was re-opened by a collective of wine merchants and distillers known as the Glen Kinchie Distillery Company. Glenkinchie was one five distilleries that formed the famous Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd in 1914.

Located close to the Spey at Ballindalloch, Cragganmore was founded in 1869 by John Smith— one of the great pioneers in Scotch who gained immense expertise managing iconic distilleries like The Glenlivet, Dailuaine, and Macallan. The Smith family managed the distillery until 1923. This complex malt is considered one of the original ‘Classic Malts’ and classed as A1 by blenders.
After the whisky has been distilled, Cragganmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for twelve years in second-fill bourbon casks to subdue the woodiness that is often imparted by lengthy aging in virgin or first-fill ex-bourbon casks. As a result, the whisky has a straw gold color and beautiful floral aroma, with added notes of sage, rosemary, honey and peanut butter brittle. The palate is filled with hazelnuts, dark chocolate and lavender, and leads to a subtle finish that is marked by oak, almonds, light smoke and vanilla.
Cragganmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky earned 94 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, and is said to have, “the most complex nose of any malt whisky,” according to the esteemed whisky writer Michael Jackson.
