    Does not amount to anything

    Cameron Brig is the ‘official’ single grain release of the Lowland grain distillery Cameron Bridge. This bottle is dirt cheap and looks rather plain (which I like), but that says little of the quality inside. Or does it?

    At first, absolutely nothing happens on the nose! Seriously, it needed a full five minutes of hand warmth before even the slightest aroma appeared. Slowly but surely there is some caramel, overripe oranges, vanilla and wood shavings.

    It is very light on the palate with a little more fruit than on the nose. Think pineapple and pears… but the candy version. A hint of liquorice from the wood makes the whole a little interesting. Even a bit old school. A slight bitterness appears towards the end, undoubtedly from the wood.

    Contrary to my expectations, the finish is medium long. I would have expected this to hardly have a finish at all. That’s a pleasant surprise.

    Well, truth be told this grain does not amount to anything, but with enough patience it is a little bit interesting on the palate. It will not surprise you that most of the production is destined for the blending industry to provide bulk for Haig, J&B, Bell's, Black & White, VAT69 and – obviously - Johnnie Walker. A bottle will set you back around 22 EUR.

    colour: honey towards gold

    Nose: light, caramel (not honey), sultanas, a bit of sweet alcohol > sherry. Fruit that is a bit over-ripe. In the background some ashes

    Taste: very very light...fruit peel (fruit and a bit bitter)

    Finish: fades away quickly, with a residual left over of sweetness

    Bottle: unpretentious

    I guess this is the best way to introduce a newcomer to whisky...very palatable. easy drink. Maybe an unfair score. In its category (grain whisky) and for its main purpose (blending), it is a good whisky

    Nose: Grainy, glue, mashed potato (huh?). little hint of fruit. And something I assume is corn syrup. With some air it gets the classic grain nose.

    Taste: flat, hint of flowers and sweets.

    Body: is there any?

    Finish: Some liqourish with some fantasy, some sweet syrup (like in canned fruit). But it doesn't last.

    Price: reasonable

    Presentation: Just the bottle and no marketing blablabla which is a pro. It even states on the bottle it is a light and subtly smooth whisky!

    Comment: Very good introduction to grain. I assume there is quite a portion of older grain in there. But this is way better that Haig Club and less than 1/2 the price.

    grain, just good ol' plain grain whisky, good for introduction / education, other than that, nothing much can be said about it, plain, weak, basic non complex flavors, grain evident all throughout

    Very interesting! Recommended for educational purpose on blended whiskies. Taste and learn.
    • Nose
      No water: cigaret-ashes, green graa, light.
      With water: ashes, savoury notes (light broth), nice sweet honey.
    • Taste
      Light, volatile, undefined. Little sweet, little wood. Savoury hint.
    • Finish
      Long finish of a sweet and spicy warmth.
