Whisky Reviews for Cameronbridge 1990 HL
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.78 points
- Nose: Opens on vanilla, icing sugar. Quite abut if wood: Sawdust, Pencil savings, Lemon zest. Eucalyptus which gets more noticeable with water. (this one does benefit from water, so add some)
Palate: A bit harsh and grainy. sweet and spicy with a lot of pepper. Ginger. Lots of sugar and vanilla too,with some fruity elements and mostly peach. Hint of bitter milk chocolate. Lots of oak. And the tiniest hint if dried mango.
Finish: Oak, bitter chocolate. Sugared almonds.
This is a nice grain whisky, which needs some water to open up and reveal its full potential and reduce the sharpness (I seldom add water, but this time it was needed). After you do add water, the lovely fruity mango and peach are there, and the oak is well balanced IMHO. for a 23 year old its well priced too. Enjoyable stuff. Grain lovers, you should try this one.
- Nose that is reminiscent of white spirit, not really engaging.
Very alcoholic mouth on cherry with kirsch, big bitterness of dry apricot.
Final on dry alcohol.
(tasted with a crowded nose, so not in ideal conditions)
