Whisky reviews for Cambus 1988 DL

2 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 84.00 points.

  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Boring grain with a very basic palate. The only exciting part is the nose hence why it gets more points than others.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Sugary sweet honey and chamomile with gentle and calming lavender. Deep fried onions in chili oil.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Overly ripen banana, boring single plane of vanilla and apple.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short, dry and nothing memorable. Light on pepper, lemon, ginger and yes agree with DL, liquorice.

    One week later, this Cambus has opened up. Although not much is to be said, I am glad to say it is more pleasant, hence the rise in points to the midway 85. FInishing is still lacking and rather mild in comparison to others.

  4. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, imposing wood, vanilla, undifferentiated fruits!
    In the mouth, we feel the heavy grain, the woody quite intense and dry, return of vanilla and leather, then fruity scents!
    In the finish, same aromas with a plus for vanilla and barrel of wood.

    A good dram, can be young, but that starts to release pronounced aromas!
