More from the Originals line of single cask bottlings- and this time a single grain from the distillery of Cameronbridge. This one was aged for 37 long years in a refill barrel #TWB1005 after being distilled in 1982.
Cameronbridge 37 Year Old 1982, TWB originals , 51%, £140
Nose: On the nose – a classic ex-bourbon cask, with coconut shreds, nuts, vanilla, and spice, with quite some wood, as well as sweet pastries, Belgian waffles, sugar icing and a hint of acetone, which is very welcome indeed. I am missing old wood varnish, but other than that- lovely.
Palate: Quite sweet and lovely on the palate, with juicy vanilla and caramel candy covered in chocolate. the Coconut is back in the form of bounty bars, quite spicy at times with a touch of chili and ginger powder.
Finish: Roasted nuts, mocha, coconut candy, vanilla ice.
Conclusion: A highly enjoyable single grain, with a nice age statement indeed. Quite liked it, would have loved to get a bit of older wood on top of oodles of coconut and vanilla.
