Producing whisky is a long tradition in the Haig family. It can be looked back on about 400 years of whisky distillation and it was in the early 19th century when the Cameronbridge Distillery was built by John Haig. Today it is still the birthplace of premium Whiskies like the Haig Club Single Grain Scotch Whisky.
On the nose this dram has a light bouquet that has fruity notes of apples, pears and lemons as well as hints of oak casks and cardamom. On the palate the oak has a stronger position and is balanced by sweet impressions of vanilla and toffee. Furthermore, slightly bitter tannins from the casks can be detected. This bitterness is fading out towards the end. Therefore, the finish shows mainly notes of spicy oak and nuances of cardamom.
This stunning single grain has a fresh, clean style showcasing butterscotch -smooth tropical fruit and slick, spicy backing harmonies; it's a smooth, sophisticated new take on Scotch that's perfect to sip over ice or as the heart of light long drink.
