CAMBUS 1991 AGED 24 YEARS
Single Cask, Single Grain
Lowland Scotch Whisky
From one of Scotland's first grain whisky distilleries, which operated for 157 years before falling silent in 1993, Cambus is very hard to find as a single grain whisky since most of the production was used to make blended Scotch whisky.
This 24 year old was distilled in 1991 and is taken from a single barrel of just 259 700ml bottles. This 1993 vintage Cambus Single Grain was bottled from the cask under the Old Particular brand (Douglas Laing & Co.), a range of premium, old and rare single malt and singe grain whiskies botled at premium or cask strength.
Scotch whiskies for the Old Paricular brand are individuall selected by Douglas Laing from their extensive stocks of casks.
OFFICIAL TASTING NOTES

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Situated in Tullibody, not far from Stirling, Cambus distillery was converted from a mill in 1806 before registering as a distillery in 1813.
The distillery operated for over 150 years before closing in 1993 and is now a cask filling store, with the land being used for warehousing Scotch whisky under bond.
Cambus was amongst the first grain whisky distilleries in Scotland, and at one stage was one of the largest.
The distillery was sometimes referred to as Tullibody.
