Glencadam 21yo (46%, OB, +/-2010) – Scotch Whisky Tasting Note


Glencadam 21yo (46%, OB, +/-2010)


“Unchillfiltered and No Added Colouring” What a great start. The nose presents as quite sweet but with a strong back ground that is both gently of heather and tinned fruit cocktail (with the syrup). There are also some pleasant green notes much like a green head of plump barley. The taste is warming and again sweet with a good solid taste, hints of leather and tobacco along with oak spice and of course the sweetness. A flash of coconut. A very ‘big’ feel in the mouth, loads of flavour. Quite excellent actually.  Some what of a different style from many whiskies  and not ambushed by the oak influence, all in harmony. The finish is quite long, mildly fragrant, chewy malt. Some ginger something pops up in the finish to give the whole picture a bit of a twist. Sweet malt at the very end.

A damn fine dram, impress your friends. Refined and still vibrant. Well done.
