    Pineapple Pine Needle Raisins Caramel Apple Chocolate Ginger Plum Crème Brulee Nutty Woody Pear Drops
    Part of the Diageo Special Releases 2016 collection, this limited edition Single Grain Whisky was distilled in 1975 at the now closed Cambus distillery, near Alloa. The oldest release to date from the distillery, only 1,812 individually numbered bottles have been charged from refill American oak hogsheads.

    The nose is lively with fruity top notes of red apple, pineapple and gooseberry above strawberry chewy sweets, milk chocolate and toffee. The palate is light and drying with pine notes building in sweetness with salted caramel, pear drops and plum characteristics. The finish is short yet warm and gentle.
    Cambus was originally founded in 1806 as a malt whisky distillery but was re-equipped in 1837 for grain distilling. Much of the distillery was destroyed in a fire on the night of 23rd September 1914, but 24 years later a rebuilt Cambus reopened. Closed for the final time in 1993, single grain expressions from the distillery are hard to come by.
