Cambus 40 Year Old 1975 (2016 Special Release)
70 cl, 52.7%

The first distillery bottling of Cambus Single Grain Whisky of the new millennium, forming a part of the keenly awaited 2016 Diageo Special Releases. This is, by some margin, the oldest official bottling of Cambus whisky.

Aged for an extraordinary 40 years, this was the oldest whisky in the 2016 outturn. Grain whiskies are known for developing a staggering complexity at great age, which works perfectly with the lighter style of spirit.

Cambus, a Lowland grain distillery, is sadly demolished, having closed in 1993. The distillery was founded in 1806, and in 1886 was one of the distilleries visited by Alfred Bernard in the writing of his famous the Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom. Over the years, this grain spirit was used in a great many blends. The distillery site lives on as a cooperage and warehousing complex for whisky giant Diageo.

This whisky has been aged in refill American oak hogsheads, providing the whisky with a delicate oaky depth which does not overpower the spirit.

Drinkers should expect flavours of warming malt, fudge, greengages, grapes, creamy vanilla, potpourri, cloves, lemon rind, pastry, cinnamon, tinned peaches, white chocolate and oak panelling.

Bottled at a cask strength of 52.7% ABV, this dram has retained its proof incredibly well, despite the age. Cambus 40 year old has not been artificially coloured or chill filtered. The final product is a whisky of great intensity and body.
