Cearban (Robert Graham) Review

Cearban (Robert Graham) Cearban, Gaelic for Basking Shark, is a blended malt from Robert Graham consisting of coastal malts from around Scotland.

Winning awards and being described by Jim Murray as "it features a shark on the label but it should be a whale as this dram is huge" makes me very interested in giving this a try.

The nose on this is very fruity but with those coastal notes hiding in there too, but the palate is huge and coastal, salty and seabreeze with spices this keeps your plate on its toes.

Tasty stuff and definitely worth trying, grab one from the Robert Graham Online Store.

Thanks to Robert Graham for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


Dark fruits, pomegranate, figs, raisins and melon peel, waxy and oily, coastal seaweed and salty chip shop chips, there's some freshly cut grass and sweet vanilla essence in here also.


Tasty stuff, very coastal for sure, crispy seaweed, chip shop chips and sea breeze, there's a definite saltiness and it's very different to the fruity sweetness on the nose, spice sprinkled farmhouse bread and melon peel


Big powerful and spicy, long lasting
