Cambus Distillery opened at Cambus near Alloa in 1806 to produce malt and grain whisky. Prior to closure in 1993 Cambus produced grain whisky. The buildings now house a Diagio cask filling centre. Cambus is a lost Scottish lowlands whisky distillery.
Beutifully subtle aromas of toasted toffee, poached pear and light, Cognac-esque dried fruit. The nose slowly unwinds to show a touch of incense and a light perfumed edge. The vanillins build and add to the superb depth. With time a light buscuity and melted butter note appear.
Like the nose, the palate is slow to unwind. Vanilla and toffee gives way to gentle peach and pear. Again it shows a subtle Cognac-esque rancio on the middle along with some bitter wood spices. Very mouth-filling and gorgeously spicy on the finish with both the bitter and sweet spices mingling with the drying tannins. However a lovely burst of citrus keeps the finish clean and vibrant. Superb, subtle dried fruit fade.
