I actually don’t think I could find anything interesting to say about Glencadam distillery. It was closed between 2000-2004, it’s changed hands a bunch and it’s a Highland distillery, south of Aberdeen.
I guess the name sounds a bit like a cliché magic word…
No? Just me? Ok, whatever.
Colour: Pale Gold
Nose: Fresh and clean. Malty, fresh fruit with plenty of green apple and juicy pear, light citrus, a little raisin, a biscuit note. Nice balance.
Taste: Juicy! Fresh with lots of life. Juicy red and green apple, pear, some raisin again, biscuit again, quite creamy, building malt character with cereal, some oak into the finish.
Finish: Short/Medium length. Red apple and an oaky bite.
An agreeable whisky. Reminds me of Glen Moray.
Wait, no! I’ve got it now. Glencadam sounds slightly musical!!
I’m still not sure if I’m a fan
More red apple than O-Ban
Oh, Highland Glencadam
Make me into more of a man
Throws the punches like Jackie Chan
Calling out Glencadam
You may get kicked out the clan
You could drink it out of a can!
I’ll show myself out….
Thanks for reading!
