1991 Cooper's Choice Cambus 29 Year Old Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Tasting note: [20ml sample] Distilled at the now closed Lowland grain distillery in 1991, this spent most of its life in an x Bourbon barrel before being finished in an Italian Amarone red wine cask. Patience reveals the full breadth of the bouquet, with an accent on vanilla wafer biscuits; later hints of dried cranberries. Melts like barley sugar in the mouth with caramel, oak spices and sticky date in tow. Feels slightly restrained for Cambus. Arguable if the finishing was for better or worse. 336 bottles from the outturn. 46.2% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Notes from the bottler... "Nose: Big and bold with cherry liqueur, coconut and brown sugar. Palate: Tropical fruits and bourbon. Coconut with subtle notes of figs and dark chocolate."
