Following last year's Cally 40 Year Old, it's now Cambus' turn to provide a well-aged official bottling of single grain for the Special Releases. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is also the oldest ever official bottling of Cambus. Aged in refill American oak hogsheads, just 1,812 bottles have been produced.
Nose: Rich fudge pieces with an aromatic edge reminiscent of fabric softener. Fruit soon develops with gooseberries in cream and a little pear drop.
Palate: Baked pears now, in pastry, with hints of cinnamon, fresh flowers, cloves and lemon thyme.
Finish:Peach melba and a touch of pot pourri, fragrant and delicious.
