The Cragganmore peat rating is because I ALWAYS find Cragganmore relatively heavily peated. The old DCL (Diageo) malts alll have a relatively high peat level in the flavour. Look at Glenlossie, Mortlach, for example. I have always found Craggnamore to be the company's most peatily flavoured Speyside, which is why i was surprised when they put it into the Classic Malt range - which was supposed to show a typical character of the region. To me, Glen Elgn or Glendullan are much more typical of Speyside than Cragganmore. To assess the peat levels, you have to taste it clinically against its local peers.
