Cambus 24 year old 54.7% Bladnoch Forum Bottle

Cambus 24yo 1986 54.7%

Nose: a lot of vanilla on a background of toasted bread. Crême de banane. Some apple. Sweet but rather high on alcohol and sharp wood. Hints of glue. Not too complex. I’ve tried this in different glasses because in some types it just doesn’t seem to express itself. Water helps to bring out coconut, which is nice.

Mouth: not so typical. Big notes of caramel and lots of wood. Honey. Bittersweet notes of oranges. Overall quite nice but also quite neutral: grains, alcohol and plain oak or so it seems. Water helps to soften it again and make it more flavourful (vanilla and coconut again).

Finish: rather short, with juicy oak and zesty oranges.

    A competitively priced whisky. Along with the Invergordon, I think these represented a worth while entry into the world of grain whisky. We’re hoping to buy a cask of Irish grain whisky one of these days, just to keep a bit of balance.
