Grain whisky is malt whisky’s lighter, column-distilled cousin, which employs corn, rye, or wheat as well as barley. Grain whisky makes up the lion’s share of almost all blended whiskies, but until recently it has rarely been bottled on its own. The Cambus distillery, one of the first grain whisky distilleries, has been closed since 1993, so bottlings are few and far between. The 40 Year Old is proof that grain whisky can taste every bit as lovely as a single malt.
Nose: fairly gentle start, a little ethereal with eucalyptus and glue notes on a background of sweet fruit gums (pineapple and strawberry). Growing thicker. Dried coconut and green almonds. Plenty of minty notes. Oak dust and varnish. Something caramelized white chocolate as well.
Palate: oily, with the classic notes up front (vanilla, leather, coconut, maple syrup) but in a second wave also great tropical fruits. Mango, pink grapefruit, guava. Not that common in a grain whisky. A slight rummy note too. A little pepper and fruit tea towards the end.
Finish: medium long, on darker fruits (cassis), chocolate and lime.
