Scotland's Oldest Independent Bottler
Never-Chill Filtered, Never-Coloured
Dispatched From Campbeltown
Cambus distillery closed in 1993 – 26 years ago so this stuff is getting pretty scarce these days. The good thing though like with most grains they improve with age and this 30yo is a great example of how good grain can be if you leave it in cask for a long time.

Sweet and oily. Coconut and lots of rum notes.
Rum flavours continue, creamy, lemon drizzel cake.
Fading vanilla, white sugar and juicy orange.
Nose – Wow – enormous presence to this, opening with old school tropical scotch cask, but one of those entrancing casks that combines weird, structural wood with the fruit. This is oddly formic and has a little fountain pen ink and wood sour backing to that big, juicy mango, new carpet and fruit polos. Please, please be good on the delivery…
Body – … and it is – ripe and lacquered, gentle and rich with fruit and sugars – mango smoothie and Marlboro lights.
Finish – Fades out quite quickly via a touch of blue cheese and black pepper, but that’s what happens with things get this blustery.
A superb whisky. Neither of these grains is particularly grainy, particularly this one which is classic old Scotch. Utterly delicious.
(That is very good in Ben’s scoring – see here for info)
