What they say:

This single grain whisky was distilled at the Cameronbridge distillery in fife. A very light, gentle whisky.

Nose: Light, subtle. Honey, spice.

Palate: Caramel, mixed peels, a touch of sherry, sultanas.

Finish: Medium length, oak and honey, more peels.

Next we moved onto the single grain whisky from Cameron Bridge distillery called Cameron Brig. Still at only 40% this whisky had little else going for it in character. A lovely [probably caramel] gold colour, this dram smelled like ethanol and methylated spirits [methanol], this had a buttery chemical taste and was reasonably vaporous in the mouth with a short harsh finish. Of all the whiskies we tried this tasted the most like it had been formulated in a laboratory and was purely a bunch of chemicals in a bottle…
