Glencadam is in the Eastern Highlands, near Brechin. In 2003, Glencadam was purchased by Angus Dundee, who have a range of blends and also own Speyside distillery Tomintoul (which is in our hidden gems of Speyside tasting). This 10 year old expression was released at the end of 2008 and follows the excellent new trends of being unchilfiltered and bottled at 46%.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Incredibly complex. Almond sponge fingers. Green bananas. Slightly charred lemon puff biscuits. A dash of orange, a dusting of milk chocolate and a wisp of minty smoke.
Palate: Initially soft and minty honey, soon clobbered by oak and a burst of citrus zest, which, in turn, eventually softens to a layer of mocha and, at the end, spearmint.
