We've managed to build a steady following for single GRAIN whisky here at K&L, along with our MALT program. Grain whisky, much like Merlot after Sideways, has always had a negative reputation because it was considered the cheap slop used to cut single malt into blended whisky. Because it's made from unmalted corn, wheat, and barley and distilled on a column still, rather than a pot still, it's much cheaper to make. That doesn't mean it isn't delicious or of high quality, however. This Cambus is so soft and smooth you'll think you're drinking Johnnie Blue. And, in essence, you are. Cambus was the original grain whisky used for the Walker expressions before the distillery was closed in 1993. Caramel, soft toffee, and a supple mouthfeel carry on to the finish. You'll see exactly why we're converting people over to grain whisky with this selection.
