At the Limburg Whisky Fair I had the opportunity to buy a sample of an old Gragganmore 12 Italian import bottle, probably from the 1970s. Let’s compare it to the current expression in a head to head tasting:
This malt has a nice balance of subtle flavours. It is a fine fruity aperitive-style dram but doesn’t leave a long lasting impression. – Rating: 84/100
The flavours of this malt are rather generic for a refill bourbon cask, but they are well balanced and make it a very pleasurable dram. – Rating: 84/100
Not very fruity for a port finish. Gentle and well-balanced but a bit weak on the palate – Score: 77/100
