Cadenhead’s Cambus 1963

Country: Scotland
Type: Single Grain
Bottler: Cadenhead's
ABV: 53.2%
Score: 89 points

This single grain from the now-closed Cambus distillery was distilled in 1963 and bottled in 1994, and even after 20 years in the bottle, still retains its full-bodied heritage. The nose is aromatic with notes of cocoa and coffee beans, caramel, maple, butterscotch, oak, and hot fudge ice cream topping. The taste is full of licorice, hot fudge, and a touch of cinnamon, then turns dry leading into the finish with a good oakiness. The finish is oaky, but smooth with notes of licorice, honey, and a touch of walnut. Thanks to Peter Silver of the Malt Maniacs for providing a sample from his collection! (October, 2014)
