A well matured Glencadam whisky, that has been finished in Oloroso sherry casks.
A rather underrated distillery, Glencadam produces a light, floral style of whisky, enhanced through the use of upward-angled lyne arms. Traditionally associated with the Stewart’s Cream of Barley blend through much of its nearly 200 year history, Glencadam is now beginning to gain a reputation for its high quality single malt.
This particular dram was initially aged in former Bourbon casks, before enjoying a finish in Oloroso sherry casks. In total, this dram was aged for 19 years, giving it plenty of time to develop complexity and depth.
The result is a rich, sherried dram with notes of brown sugar, spice, raisins, slight juniper, toasted nuts, vanilla custard, charred oak, a little apple, pear and pressed flowers, milk chocolate, toasted malt and coffee.
Bottled at 46% ABV, and without chill filtration or colouration, this is a well crafted, full bodied whisky.
A sophisticated, sherried dram.
