Another top quality young offering from the fine folks at Càrn Mòr.
This time, it’s a Glencadam that has made the grade. This distillery has been distilling for 200 years, nearly non stop (it was mothballed briefly in the year 2000). Nevertheless, it is only in recent years that its flavoursome spirit has been prized as a single malt. The distillery produces a floral, silky spirit, with a distillation that places great emphasis on reflux.
This whisky has been aged for 7 years in just two Bourbon barrels, having been distilled in 2011 and bottled in 2019.
The result is a deeply tropical dram, with notes of apricot, peach, pineapple, mango, lime, orange, dried coconut, clean malt, flowers (acacia and honeysuckle) powdered sugar and vanilla.
Bottled at 46% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, this whisky has a surprisingly thick mouthfeel for such a young dram.
Just 638 bottles were produced.
