    This single grain whisky from the now closed Cambus distillery in the Lowlands is on the sweet side with a lovely vanilla nose that pleasantly echos on the palate. Rich and tasty with a good mastered alcohol. Nice balance of fruit, oak and spice. Not the most complex grain whisky on the planet, but deliciously sweet, soft, creamy and, at least to me, very savoury and easy to drink!I thank Douglas Laing for the sample and the photograph!
    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity on the nose with vanilla, brown sugar, melons and apricots. Cereal notes with a pleasant hint of spice - cinnamon, cloves, and a touch of oak in the back.
    • Taste
      Much sweeter than on the nose with vanilla, toffee, apricots and gentle tangerine. This is followed by a warming spiciness of cinnamon, oak, subtle black pepper and clove. A touch of dry cocoa lingers towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and sweet with vanilla custard, caramel and Demerara sugar. Slightly bitter orange peel and cloves on the tail. Pleasantly warming!

      With water: On the nose, loads of vanilla are coming through by adding a few drops of water. Very sweet and soft! Water tames a bit of the spiciness on the palate bringing more vanilla and toffee notes to the fore. The finish is significantly shorter with sweet vanilla and Demerara sugar. Slightly warming with crisp oak on the tail.
