A rare find from an esteemed grain distillery. Four decades of maturation have afforded this superb distillate time to develop into something truly special. With honeyed sweetness and pudding flavours abundant through the nose and palate – complemented with orange, nougat and touches of aromatic spice – even those with the most ardent sweet-tooth will find this a fine substitute for dessert.

Nose: Just classic. The corn oils and Ulmo honey are in a love clinch….;

Taste: Now I’m in one…with the glass…! The Ulmo honey spreads around your palate like your lover on a rug before a log fire… And now the oak is gorgeously embedded into the corn. So the mouthfeel plays an equal role to the flavours… and they are luxurious and delicate in the extreme. A fragile blend of acacia and heather honey on one higher pitch, Ulmo honey on a deeper, and here even with a light coconut touch…;

Finish: No bitter notes, which so often happens at this age and after so much honey on display. Just a slow sunset of corn oils, still the Ulmo honey and now a wonderful but measured degree of pattering spice…;

Balance: Given the right cask and the right time, Cambus is as good as anything distilled in Scotland. Here we see it in sublime form: no major faults from the cask… and certainly not the distillate. How many varying forms and densities of sweetness can you find on one whisky? Well, here’s your chance to find out… get counting…!

It is a little-known fact that Cambus distillery began its life distilling malt whisky – in a disused mill on the banks of the Deveron in Alloa, before the Moubray family had the foresight in 1836 to install two Stein patent stills. The switch to grain whisky was the prelude to a century as one of the largest and most esteemed grain whisky distillers in Scotland. Highly regarded by blenders, the spirit of Cambus also emerged into the spotlight as a single grain product, and ‘Cambus Pure Grain Whisky’, aged for seven years, played a starring role in DCL’s campaign to sway public opinion in favour of allowing grain spirit to use the name ‘whisky’. Grain whisky won the fight, and the produce of Cambus remains a firm favourite among independent bottlers. However, supplies are dwindling – the distillery closed its doors in 1993, and only a handful of casks remain.
