Insider knowledge: Cameron Brig whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Cameron Brig whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Light, subtle. Honey, spice.
Palate: Caramel, mixed peels, a touch of sherry, sultanas.
Finish: Medium length, oak and honey, more peels.
I couldn't discern that many flavours from this whisky, it's the simplest whisky I've ever tried. If I did find any tones such as honey or apple they were very faint and taste only appeared with water, faint apple.
A good whisky but not to my liking.

Cameron Brig's Single Grain has been a delight. With its own sweet flavors, one can understand the value of single grains in their own right, not to mention what they can then contribute to blends. Lets not forget that without blends, no distillery would survive long enough to keep the "single malt" industry alive, so let's give them the credit they deserve.

Super everyday dram, lovely sweet honey notes with a touch of spice. I'd always been dismissive of grain whisky but after reading the reviews I thought it must be worth a try. At this price point it certainly is a great everyday whisky in my humble opinion and I certainly won't be do dismissive of the grain in future.

I worked briefly in the Brig o'Tay' in Newport,Fife, in 1976, then owned by Frank McGrory. One of the favourite orders at the bar was 'Twa Cameron Brig'. Mind you, 'Twa OVD' was also popular. When I heard that Cameron Brig was the world's only single grain whisky (that was then) I tried it and was delighted. It makes a fabulous present to someone who is sceptical about Scotch whisky, with its delicate and memorable flavour.

Cameron Brig, Black Barrel and Invergordon have all been grossly underestimated, although it's understandable given the fabulous and well-deserved reputation of single malts. It's time Scotland started shouting loud about the quality of its single grains too!

...but I use it as the base in my own blending and furthering my whisky knowledge as I create my own drams. x

Having been a fan of The Invergordon single grain in the nineties, I sought the advice of staff at The Whisky Shop in Inverness for an alternative. My first bottle of Cameron Brig was purchased for me and I have just taken delivery of three more from Master of Malt.
This is so easy to drink as it is exceptionally smooth. The perfect way to relax at teh end of a busy day.

We were given a bottle of Cameron Brig whisky several years ago as a gift and hadn't opened it. I found it at the back of the drinks cabinet the other night and opened it - wow! What a secret! So creamy and smooth. Unfortunately I can't remember who gave us the bottle now, so I can't thank them.

A truly great whisky, this whisky is very smooth, covers the mouth beautifully and has a subtle nose of vinilla and toffee, the only thing I would like to change about this whisky is the ABV%, I would love to see a non-chillfiltered version, but the fact that it's only 40% isn't a deal breaker,this whisky is great value for money and tastes better than some single malts, buy a bottle you wont regret it.

Just too good to be sitting around to look at - it has to be drunk! A wonderful whisky for someone who is new to malt whisky. Slides over the taste buds like double cream. Flawless

This has to be one of the finest "single"s ever produced and is perfect for any occasion and any climate.

This has to be the most under-rated whisky on this web site. I expected something harsh & industrial but this is beautifully clean & soft but with a lovely honey/vanilla oakiness ... they obviously have a vast number of casks to choose from to get something this good. My favourite whisky. Put your prejudice to one side. Try some today.
