Bladnoch Distillery have bottled a couple of Cragganmore casks in the past, one at 60.6% and the other at 62%. These are no longer available in the online shop but you should be able to pickup either up from one of the various online retailers.
Cragganmore 12 yo - 40%
Cragganmore DE - 40%
Cragganmore 1993 10 yo - 60.1%
Cragganmore 14 yo "Friends of the Classic Malts" - 47.5%
Cragganmore 1973 29 yo - 52.5%
I have seen different bottles of the 12, ranging from the 1980's to now, and all of them have been 40%. I have one from the early 90's, and one from the late 90's, and both of them are 40%. I would try a bottle of the 10 yo, and you can always water it down a bit to your taste.

Both were released some time ago and I shouldn't think there is a lot of either of them around. Having said that, given the current weakness of the £, you might do quite well ordering them from TWE. Also, if you were seriously thinking of forking out around £90 for the 14yo, then why not go the whole hog and get the 29yo for £124. That's a pretty good price for any 29yo OB these days.
Thanks Willie, I didn't realize that the 14yo would be £90 Might still be a good buy, but for £90 (or £124) I think I will buy some other bottles first
