Whisky Reviews for Cameronbridge 1978 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.20 points

  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A grain, no doubt. A very sweet drop, which positively surprised. Only a subtle, almost pleasant bitterness. At most, the old age can be detected only limited, it is more of the fresh, sparkling variety.
    • Nose
      In the beginning solvent with a transition in licorice. Then increasingly sweeter, molasses and coffee. Later dusty, then apple, pear and overripe bright grapes. Finally, tobacco and light chocolate.
    • Taste
      Sweet starting, pear, then briefly the solvents, berry fruits. Alcohol present, somewhat peppery but well integrated.
    • Finish
      Long finish, only little bitterness inspiring bitterness. Again the berry fruits, molasses, sweet gum, later again apple.

  2. pianoman scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Round. Pickled pears, vanilla cream, coconut flakes. Popcorn. A hint of solvent. Dry wood, a hint of pepper.
    • Taste
      Fruity, spicy. Fruit salad with honey and chopped almonds. Overripe peaches. White chocolate and black pepper.
