CAMBUS 40Y ~ LOWLAND, SCOTLAND
A limited edition, natural cask strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky from Cambus. Highly approachable, deceptively complex and fresh for its age, this is an incredibly well-integrated and harmonious natural cask strength single grain that is light, yet sumptuous and clean.
Nose: Rich fudge pieces with an aromatic edge reminiscent of fabric softener. Fruit soon develops with gooseberries in cream and a little pear drop.
Palate: Baked pears now, in pastry, with hints of cinnamon, fresh flowers, cloves and lemon thyme.
Finish: Pow! Peach melba and a touch of pot pourri, fragrant and delicious.
The Cambus distillery dates back to the early 1800s - it was opened in 1836 in a village that shares its name near Alloa. Here it quietly produced its whiskies, becoming one of the first members of the Distillers Company Ltd. In 1913, a fire destroyed much of the distillery, forcing it to close until 1938. Cambus produced grain whisky, a lot of which made its way into blends, though you can still find independent bottlings of their single grain if you’re lucky.
