What they say

Glencadam Distillery opened in 1825, and since then little has changed to our award-winning whisky. The entire Glencadam range is bottled at 46%, is unchillfiltered and is natural in colour.

Multi-award winning Glencadam Highland Single Scotch Malt Whisky Aged 15 Years is a fine example of centuries of craftsmanship and tradition. “The rather dignified” malt with a beautifully mouth-watering, juicy flavour.

Official tasting notes:

Nose: Salty notes with a balance of sweetness. Delicate, elegant and charming

Palate: Juicy cut-grass freshness with a mouth-watering malty signature. Restrained sweetness caressed by soft oak

Finish: Medium length. Oak balancing sweeter characteristics with malty reprise

Colour: Pale gold

What I say

Dram #2 from Water of Life Society Tasting 103 Scotch Whisky Regions. I guess i was thrown by the light nature of this one and opted for Speyside. Unfortunately I was very wrong!

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: (4/20), medium tears and medium legs.
  • Nose: Sweet, fruity, slightly floral, coconut, vanilla, green apple, pear skin, some citrus and oak wood.
  • Taste: Mixed fruit and gentle cereals, biscuity with red berries/summer fruits, apple and pear.
  • Finish: Medium long, slightly drying with more oak wood influence present.


Another quite light dram, of similar strength and also ex-Bourbon cask matured. remarkably the 5 years difference between this and the last were really not apparent.

Score 83/100

Don’t take my word for it:
