Bottle Name: Glencadam 15 year old
Glencadam 15 year old was released in its present format in 2011. Nicknamed 'The Rather Dignified', the whisky is unchillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46% ABV.
Nose: Grassy, herbal and floral. There’s a real spearmint running right the way through this. Toasted oats, earthy malts and salted nuts provide some additional interesting notes. There’s some well-balanced vanilla and a light brine which gives a fresh salinity to the experience.
Taste: A solid mouthfeel which is sweeter and maltier than the nose. Subtle herbs and florals are still present, but play second fiddle to more cask elements – black pepper and a sappy, almost resinous note. Sweetness comes from toffee, and fudge.
Finish: Medium, peppery and slightly astringent.
Glencadam 15 year old is sweet, woody and well made. The herbal notes provide real character and the dram deftly walks a line balancing sweet malts with spicy wood.
