Whisky Reviews for Cambus 1988 DL

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nowhere near as impressive as when I originally tasted this but still a solid hitter.
    • Nose
      grain note but quite gluey like a wood glue
    • Taste
      a mild sweetness; the abv is about as strong as you need it to be
    • Finish
      medium+, slightly woody which keeps the finish going

  2. DenisLeonov scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Go
    A: Bourbon. Vodka notes appear later.

    B: sweet. Caramel. Apple syrup.


    P: very sweet. Crème-brulee. Where pepper? A little bitterness ...


    B: a rather strange feeling ...


    empty glass smells like cucumber pickle

  3. Mannix65 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Grain-typical extreme sweetness, glue, very bourbon-laden, lots of caramel and toffee, short and artificial finish - not my cup of tea

  4. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Linseed oil, custard creme, glue, putty, paint, sawdust, plastic, pencil shaving, pva, creaming soda
    • Taste
      Roses, bourbon, glue, cocoa, turkish delight, banana 
    • Finish
      Medium long, oak, cocoa.
