*Presale The Perfect Fifth Cambus 42 Year Single Grain Scotch Whisky

About This Item

Nose: Classic for the distillery, showing good corn oil and accompanying acacia honey sweetness; the oak offers a
delicate Canadian touch.
Taste: Stunning texture: a rare grain that appears both firm and yielding at the same moment. Also, exceptional
crispness to the maple syrup sweetness. Big spices up front balance things beautifully.
Finish: Begins to show a little age here with a vague bitterness apparent. But the tannins hold their own, as do the
remedial sugars.
Balance: An impressive example of what then was arguably the finest grain distillery in Scotland. The structure is
sound and the Canadian style of whisky is exactly what should be expected of a fine corn Cambus of this age. There
is a slightly nagging bitterness caused by the tiring oak, but the inherent sweetness controls this well. The sugar-
spice balance is pretty near perfection. Has the odd fault, but the complexity of the sweet riches outweigh those
slightly bitter failings.
