Whisky Reviews for Cameronbridge 1984 WM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.25 points

  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    The oldest (1824) and largest grain whisky distillery in Scotland has always been at the heart of some of the most prestigious blends. Located in eastern Scotland, south of Perth, it produces a particularly robust grain whisky which at times, with long maturation, approaches the richness of single malts. This bottling, also thanks to the excellent and long influence of the cask, offers a particularly sweet, rich, creamy style with noticeable aromas of vanilla, buttery biscuits and even coconut. The more aromatic notes of mint and herbs fall slightly into second place, at least until the tannins from the cask make themselves noticeable in the end, but without disrupting the overall impression of sweetness that is further enhanced by the eventual addition of water.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It's quite a journey of smells over time. In the beginning it seems to be a disaster, but patience will reward the drinker. A good alternative to an old and dignified single malt.
    • Nose
      Directly after pouring: glue... In the next minutes, it's still there, but less dominant and accompanied by sawdust, sugared corn and furniture polish. After that, it smells like white chocolate and raisins, which is a fairly odd combination in my opinion. 

      It settles down after 50 minutes, as expected. The sawdust and polish are left, in a delicate way, that's good. It gets more honeyed and a wee bit on tinned peaches. Then I smell leather, like a library full of leather covered books... Finally there is a slight bit of caramel on the background.
    • Taste
      The palate is sweet, thick and velvety, almost on sawdust/vanilla syrup if that would exist. In the beginning, the glue seems to be there too, but this vanishes and some juniper comes instead. It's a bit musty still. Finally there is a hint of ground coffee.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and warming, dominant on vanilla and leather polish. Yet, there is a fruitier side to it (tropical fruit salad). This is nice. The juniper is present, but in a not so dominant way.
