Whisky Reviews for Cameronbridge 25-year-old whic

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.05 points

  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A wonderfully sticky, sweet and fruity single grain whisky that has been allowed to mature in a sherry cask for a quarter of a century. Full of dried fruits and dark chocolate, with a strong dash of alcoholic spice. Both pure and diluted with some water a wonderful drinking pleasure. Not only, but especially in the cold season a wonderful soul warmer.

    I thank whic (Whiskycircle) for the complimentary sample.

    • Nose
      Begins sweet on the nose with apples, caramel and dried fruits, cherries as well as raisins and dates. The whole is embedded in beautiful old sherry aromas, with notes of dark chocolate, some leather and tobacco in the background. The alcohol is well integrated and not pungent at all.
    • Taste
      Again a great sweetness on the palate with caramel and a sticky red fruit, accompanied by dried figs and raisins. Then warming with a light peppery spiciness, due to the high alcohol content. But not unpleasant. Cinnamon with dark chocolate and juicy cherry are noticeable until the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long-lasting with a sticky fruit sweetness, dark chocolate and a hint of dry tobacco leaves. Very nice.

      With water: The addition of water pushes the fruit a little into the background, while retaining its sticky sweetness. Dark chocolate in the background as well. Soft, sweet and round on the palate, the alcoholic spiciness is nicely tamed. Raisins, dates, sherry aromas, beautifully mixed with dark chocolate. Wonderful. The finish is still long with a sticky fruit sweetness, raisins and lots of dark chocolate.

    Delicious grain, and a nice influence of the sherry barrel. For me a very successful combination of Grain with its sweet adhesive note, and a sherry note, which comes along discreetly.
    I was briefly unsure if a Grain from the 80s was really a good idea, since they are different and less "noble" than the Grains of the 60s and early 70s, but if you have noble old wood notes à la fine bourbon with vanilla, coconut etc and put aside younger grains with sweetness and the adhesive note (which I see here very discreetly and integrated into the overall picture) is a chance, this is a nice thing.
    Thanks to Ben (Cutty Forum) for the sample!

    The first time I actually gave a bad score on WB.
    To me this tastes more like glue than the actual stuff smells like glue. There is just a hint of sherry under all the glue. I do not understand how this is possible with this color and the age.
    Maybe it is just me, but please get yourself a sample before you buy a bottle.
