Tasting Notes

An excellent off the radar single malt distillery, Glencadam has a whisky making history dating back nearly 200 years. Old School and classic in style the malts coming out of here are also known for their refinement and elegance. If you like Glenmorangie's 10yr, then you will love this ten year expression. Notes of green pears, summer grass and cherry blossoms are offset by toasted malt, fresh ginger and hazelnuts.

Sure, it’s easier to market one dimensional whiskies but there are multifaceted gems out there, and trust me, they’re worth finding.
