What they say
23 year old single grain Scotch whisky from the long-closed Cambus distillery, matured in a single refill butt cask. It was distilled in July 1991, a few years before the distillery shut its doors for good, and bottled in January 2015 by Signatory for their Cask Strength Collection. 541 bottles were produced.

My tasting notes
- Appearance Old sauternes (9/20) slow, fine tears and fine legs.
- Nose Estery, spirity, glue, solvents, new paint, oak wood, carpentry shop, vanilla, apple, pear, butterscotch and light caramel & honey.
- Taste Medium-bodied, quite syrupy initially, spirit present, sweet caramel, boiled & pureed apples, toffee-apple, pear, banana, some white pepper spice becomes mouth-watering, varnished wooden cabinets.
- Finish Medium-long, soft brown sugar, spirity and spiced, black pepper and honey.
- Overall A well aged grain, quite solventy and woody but also plenty of sugars and fruit apparent in the spirit.
