  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Well-matured single grain. The barrel is present but does not kill the fire. Unfortunately, the taste is not that complex, as the nose might suggest.
    • Nose
      Despite the long ripening time, the typical grain notes of brown sugar and sweet cereals are immediately there. In addition, surprisingly fresh on the nose with mint and pineapple. Salty caramel behind. Over time, the sherry barrel appears more and more prominently with dates in syrup.
    • Taste
      At first very sweet with a lot of caramel. The alcohol pushes you well. On the palate it becomes spicier with toasted aromas of fresh bread and a little pepper.
      With water it becomes significantly lighter but also nuttier and drier
    • Finish
      Long, nutty and chocolatey.

    Some of the earlier Cambus I reviewed this year always seemed to be missing something. This was stuffed full of notes that I do not usually go for, from the heavy sherry fruit, to the strong wood and spice, yet I found myself really enjoying this. This was rich, thick, and oily with loads of complexity as it transitioned between different layers. Everything worked so well that this felt perfectly balanced between spice, fruit, and wood with a number of other intriguing notes that just sort of came and went.

    This was excellent and even though the style was not my favorite, I really enjoyed this dram.

    Mental Image: New Old Spice “Christmas Spice Blast"
    • Nose
      Dense sweet cake and fruit. Holiday rum butter, Christmas cake, rum baba, and apple cider mulled with cinnamon and peppercorns. Slightly medicinal cherry, candied nuts, holiday baking spices, and cigar box.
    • Taste
      Thick and oily with loads of tobacco, wood, and stewed fruit. High-class locker room notes of tobacco scented sauna, spicy aftershave, herbal menthol, and talcum powder. Fruits came through on the mid-palate with a wallop of wood; cherry syrup, orange extract, sandalwood, and old cedar beams. A faint kiss of salt and candle smoke arrived at the end.
    • Finish
      Lingering dried cherries and boozy sugars.

  5. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nice whisky for a sample so now and then but I would not buy myself a bottle because it is little to spicy for me.
    • Nose
      87 87
      I get a lot more caramel and vanilla out of the nose after few drops of water.
    • Taste
      88 88
      spicy palate with typical sherry cask infuences as caramel and mocca.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, spicy.
