Cameronbridge 26 Year Old Special Release 2022 The Knight’s Golden Triumph

Part of the Special Releases from Diageo, this is the 2022 bottling Cameronbridge 26 Year Old ‘The Knight’s Golden Triumph’. Legend has it, a brave knight forged a crown from a spirited battle lasting 26 years. Plunging through the River Ore in triumph, he carried his flag high, its long cerulean ribbons dissolving into the river’s gentle flow, transforming the water into sweet, silken gold. There, a majestic distillery was born, and as the story has it, every 26 years since, the river runs gold once again, its lustrous character present in every dram.
This Cameronbridge 26 Year Old was matured in refill American oak casks and bottled at cask strength.

    Nose:    Sweet, cotton candy and butterscotch, caramel popcorn. A hint of vanilla custard followed by coconut and also a note of lemon candy.

    Taste:    Not as sweet as the nose suggests. Although still has the vanilla and some caramel, also coconut. Then wood varnish and pencil shavings.

    Finish:    Long and a bit dry, with notes of varnish, coconut, and pencil shavings.
