Quick Dram: Wemyss Malts Lemon Grove–Cragganmore 1989

2 May 2012 Written by:

After this week’s Caribbean fruit comes the Lemon Grove, a whole different animal, and coming from the distillery of Cragganmore. Distilled in 1989 and bottled in 2011 from an ex-Bourbon Hogshead.

Wemyss Malts Lemon Grove, Cragganmore 1989 , 46% , £68wemyss_lemon

Nose:  Very fresh:  Lemon sherbet with some  malty undertone mixed with lemon gummy bears. wet grass, and a touch of spice.

Palate: Lemon merengue with a cocoa powder topping (I know this sounds bizarre, but it’s really nice). Ginger and spices, on top of Some vanilla and wood.

Finish: Bitter sweet, Medium length with Chocolate and distant malty notes.

All in all a very good cask, with an interesting profile, should appeal to those who liked lighter whiskies with a zesty edge. Well made.

Score : 86/100

Many thanks to KS from Wemyss Malts for the official sample
