A single grain whisky from the Cameronbridge distillery, bottled by Wu Dram Clan.
Aged for over four and a half decades in an ex-Bourbon hogshead, this was distilled December 1974 and bottled June 2021.
This cask yielded 218 bottles at a natural cask strength of 40.2% abv.
Grain whisky at this age can be a real treat; a fact that more and more whisky lovers are beginning to cotton on to. Expect plenty of bright tropical fruit notes.
Distibutor's Tasting Notes:
Nose: Tangerines and pineapples. Hints of maracuya and honey. Mint. Wood? Merely.
Palate: Now closer to an old Irish whiskey perhaps, opening up on pink grapefruit, mango and passion fruits. Lime. Pineapple. Light peppery notes too..
Finish: Medium long, with the tropical notes keeping strong, alongside vanilla and light oak spice.
One of Scotland's - and Europe's - biggest grain distilleries, Cameronbridge produces spirit for a number of purposes. Owned by Diageo, it's a big part of most of their blends but is also seen overseas under the 'Cameron Brig' single grain bottling.
The Wu Dram Clan came about when three whisky fanatics from around the world happened to meet on Islay and formed a lifelong friendship. The group consists of Takesado from Japan, Boris from Munich, and Sebastian from the Black Forest, Germany. Each of the founding members brings a unique skillset to the table and all adhere to the philosophy that what matters entirely is "the content of the bottle. We have made it our goal to bottle only selected spirits. We stand for quality and sensory perception."
