Great review from Serge at Whisky Fun

Cragganmore 19 yo 1992/2011 (53.6%, Duncan Taylor, Rare Auld, cask #1425, 249 bottles) Four stars Colour: white wine. Nose: starts more or less like the 1989s but becomes rather more grainy, porridgy after a few seconds. Then there’s more grass, malted barley, custard, lemon, hay… Another natural one, very pleasant despite a slight lack of character. Mouth: again, it’s almost like one of the 1989s, only with more oomph and maybe even more lemon. Perfect zestiness, keeps improving. More liquorice, grapefruits, a little fresh coriander… I like it more and more. Finish: long, fresh, candied and fruity. A top-notch lemon marmalade and one or two strawberry drops. Comments: excellent, right halfway between ‘silent wood’ and ‘loud wood’. Do you understand what I mean? SGP:641 – 87 points.
