Cameronbridge Distillery Bottlings Tasting Notes

Posted: September 23, 2011 in Cameronbridge, Scottish Grain Whisky

Cameron Brig 40%

Tasted: Nov 2010

The nose is one dimensional – oak and young-ish sharp grain. The palate I think has been flattened by caramel. Nondescript and sweet.

Haig Club Single Grain 40%

A blend of grain whisky from Cameronbridge Distillery which has been aged in Refill [American oak?], [fresh?] American Oak and Rejuvenated casks

Tasted: Sept 2014

The grain aromas are quite crisp with some soft Guyana-esque, oily dried fruit and spice. It is predominantly young spirit but there are elements of aged spirit at work, but I can’t say I’m getting much oak character though. 

The palate is initially quite sweet and grainy with hints of dried fruit, coffee and spice. Straightforward with all the flavours being delivered right from the word go, but they never develop. Good length though, but again not much from the oak.
