Cameronbridge Distillery was founded in 1824 by John Haig, then just 21 years old, and remains the oldest operating grain distillery is Scotland. Currently it is owned by Diageo and after expansion completed in 2012 produces 120 million liters of spirit per annum (that means a weekly usage of 4000 tons of grain and 50 million liters of water). Despite huge production scale only a tiny fraction of the output is bottled as single grain (under Haig’s Club brand). Cameronbridge 1965 Vintage was bottled by The Hunter Hamilton Co., subsidiary of Douglas Laing & Co., as part of their famous The Clan Denny range. The whisky spent 45 years in ex-bourbon barrel no. HH 6805 and was bottled without chill-filtration at natural strength of 40.5% abv.
Producer’s tasting note:
Carries a soft fermented apple quality on the nose running to a “Poire William” style with a sweet and macerated fruit character, maybe even some late tobacco. The palate is more Calvados in style running to toffee’d apples – bizarrely without Scottish heritage – but intriguing nevertheless! The finish is typically short yet remains surprisingly fruity – now carrying a honey, vanilla, stewed bananas and light oak quality.
