The Clan Campbell 8 Year Old Scotch whisky has been the most popular premium whiskey in France in recent years. It brings together the best of Scotch grains with a malt base. It is matured in oak casks for eight years. This lends the blend a warm hue, a peaty smokiness and almost creamy smoothness. This blend has 40% AVB and stands out among its contemporaries.
The naming of the blend has a rather interesting story behind it. While the Campbells are one of the most prominent bloodlines in the Scottish Highlands, it is still a matter of mystery how the name came to be associated with the blended scotch. It probably came into being once Forbes Macgregor & Co. became S. Campbell & Sons in 1937.
