Aged for a generous 42 years, this gorgeous single grain whisky is typical of the Cambus distillery, highly regarded by blenders for its mild and mellow nature. Good corn oil and honeyed sweetness on the nose gives way to delicate oak, balanced with big spices at the forefront on the palate. A touch of bitterness is offset by rich sweetness.

Cambus 250 150x150

The Perfect Fifth Cambus 1976 42 Year Scotch

Nose: Classic for the distillery, showing good corn oil and accompanying acacia honey sweetness; the oak offers a delicate Canadian touch.

Taste: Stunning texture: a rare grain that appears both firm and yielding at the same moment. Also, exceptional crispness to the maple syrup sweetness. Big spices up front balance things beautifully.

Finish: Begins to show a little age here with a vague bitterness apparent. But the tannins hold their own, as do the remedial sugars.

Balance: An impressive example of what then was arguably the finest grain distillery in Scotland. The structure is sound and the Canadian style of whisky is exactly what should be expected of a fine corn Cambus of this age. There is a slightly nagging bitterness caused by the tiring oak, but the inherent sweetness controls this well. The sugar-spice balance is pretty near perfection. Has the odd fault, but the complexity of the sweet riches outweigh those slightly bitter failings.
