Founded in 1825, Glencadam was acquired by the Angus Dundee Distillers Group in 2003. Its exceptionally fruity character is partly due to the shape of its stills, mounted by a gooseneck whose angle, instead of descending, rises slightly, thus increasing the backflow of the alcohol vapours. Introduced in Europe at the beginning of 2009, the new range was presented at the prestigious World Whisky Awards. Against all odds, but not the expectations of its owners, the Glencadam 10 year old was awarded the coveted title of “best single malt in its category” (single malt under 12 years old)
Distilled on 23/02/2011, aged in a Bourbon cask for 9 years. Not chill filtered. Bottled on 30/05/2018
The palate is sweet, fruity, with citrus and vanilla notes and light caramel flavours. The end-palate is long, fresh and smooth with a characteristic touch of pepper.
The lovely fruity notes we find on the first nose are followed by spicy notes.
