- Cambus 30 Year Old 1985 Sovereign

A pale gold whiskey with a sweet nose of vanilla and caramel to the fore, followed by peaches, pears and butter shortbread. The palate is initially rich with vanilla and toffee notes, with some fruity, spicy notes adding complexity to the dram. The finish is long, sweet, and slightly fruity, with a wisp of oak.
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.
