Cameron Brig Whisky
Cameron Brig // Lowlands, Scotland
This is a single grain whisky distilled at Cameronbridge in Fife which is located in the Lowlands of Scotland. It is an unpeated whisky and has no-age statement. This is the only distillery bottling from the distillery, though you may find some independent bottlings with age statements. This distillery is owned by Diageo so naturally, single grain whisky distilled here goes into their Johnnie Walker products. Additionally, they distill other products such as the wheat neutral spirit which is the base for both Smirnoff Vodka and Tanqueray Gin.
Single GrainDistilled from a grain or mixture of grains, usually corn, wheat, or barley from one distillery, if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in barrels.
"The whisky has a sweet and savory smoke to it with thoughts of vanilla caramels and bacon dipped in maple syrup. Soft on the palate, the bourbon-y qualities continue with a touch of apple skins added in. Barrel spices are soft and integrated well with the dram, and though the finish is pleasant, it is fleeting."
