The Dramble reviews SMWS 82.43 You Might Start Yodelling

Bottle Name: 82.43 You Might Start Yodelling

ABV: 64.2%
Distillery: Glencadam
Bottler: Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Flavour Profile: Sweet, fruity & mellow
Region: Highlands Age: 10

We move over to Brechin in Angus for a Glencadam that has been fully matured in a 2nd fill ex-bourbon barrel. Underrated distillery in my book this one.

View on SMWS

Nose: Rather perfumed with rosehips and clean cotton sheets set alongside raspberry bootlaces and freshly baked tart cases. Red fruit pastilles followed together with Caramac and pink wafer biscuits. All perfectly affable. Water expresses far more fruit-forward aromas with foam strawberries and Nesquik milkshake powder alongside creamy sandwich biscuits.

Taste: A juicy entrance with apricot, apple and redcurrants all held in a nicely textural suspension. Chopped garden herbs following alongside green bell peppers, runny toffee and a touch of cinnamon ball heat in the back palate. Modest but all rather genial. Reduction retained much of the overall shape of the whisky, whilst allowing addition yellow fruits – peach and mirabelles – into the mix together with waffle mix and cream-filled choux buns.

Finish: Medium in length with lingering stone fruit syrupiness.

Despite the high bottling strength this drinks pretty well as-is, offering a tight array of balanced fruit-forward influences mingles with bakery notes. Reduction allows for a touch more scope with additional pastry-led aromas and flavours and a slightly amped up fruity core. Either at cask strength or taken down a few degrees that’s a solid semi-oily mouthfeel throughout which binds everything together. Nice.

Score: 84/100
