- Cambus 25 Year Old 1988 Clan Denny
Cambus 25 Year Old 1988 vintage Lowland single grain Scotch whiskey. Single cask refill hogshead #10595 bottled 2014 by Douglas Laing & Co. for the Clan Denny series.
Anticipate bursts of tropical fruits, chocolate orange and rich spices on the nose. The palate brings more of that fruitiness – candied citrus fruits plus lychee and ripe bananas – developing to warm shortbread, golden syrup and chocolate covered coconut. The finish reveals a spiced home baking style with summer fruits and marmalade.
Cambus Single Grain Whiskey
John Moubry commissioned Cambus Distillery in 1806 at Cambus near Alloa to produce malt and grain whiskey. He was amongst a group of contemporary distillers 'paid' to close their works for a number of years by the Stein and Haig distilling family in order to enable the later to maintain their monopoly in the exportation of Scottish spirits into the London gin market. Cambus Distillery is a lost Lowlands grain whiskey distillery having closed in 1993 although its whiskey remains available and the site is occupied by a Diageo cask filling works. Hunter Laing Sovereign Cambus grain whiskies are extremely popular.
