Cameronbridge 24yo, Batch 2 “ That Boutiquey Whisky Company.

It’s all about the Grain..

Cameronbridge Distillery was originally  founded back in 1813 by John Edingon and co but did not obtain a legal license until 1824 when Home Haig ( one of the founders of DCL which later became UDV and Diageo)  originally set it up as a malt distillery but was actually closed in 1815 until 1821 when Cameronbridge was re opened and ran with both grain and malt whisky.

The production of Malt whisky stopped around 1929 when Grain whisky was solely produced and although today the Distillery also produces a grain neutral spirit for the likes of Gordon’s Gin, Smirnoff and Pimms.

Todays offering is a 24yo batch 2 single grain whisky bottled by “ That Boutiquey Whisky Company “ and is as always Natural coloured with no chill filtration and has an abv of 50.7%.

Nose.. Vanilla, caramel and toffee are the main aromas here with a touch of cinnamon, apple peel and subtle dried fruit. A soft floral note flitters in and out with a touch of oak.

Palate.. Caramel and oak with a pinch of toffee.

Finish.. Sweet oak but a little short.

Thoughts.. This is one of those drams that is easy to drink, not overly deep but does offer up some nice flavours, soft aromas and is gone a little to fast.. Better pour some more !!
