Cameronbridge 42 Year Old Tasting Notes

Nose: Very fresh for its age, spun sugar, Victoria sponge with whipped vanilla cream, tinned fruit salad, and a touch of freshly sawn oak.

Palate: Big and creamy, lashings of fruits, tropical piña colada with fresh apple and coconut, An unexpected maltiness amongst the fruits. More vanilla than the nose.

Finish: Good length, the vanilla is more assertive. The fruit fades to a more chocolatey aftertaste.

Meet The Owner

Euan Shand

A whisky merchant by trade, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky was brought by Euan Shand in 2008, returning the company to Scottish hands. Since then, Duncan Taylor has gone on to celebrate its 80th birthday in 2018 and Euan now runs the company as Chairman.

Today, Duncan Taylor have a number of award-winning collections. My favourite three are their Single Casks, bottled all natural, their Octave Invigorated, with turbo-charged flavour from small sherry casks, and their Rare Auld Grain collection of exceptionally well-aged single grain whiskies.
