There’s something to be said about distilleries that keep a low profile, eschewing public attention. You get the feeling they’re focusing on what’s important: whisky. Glencadam is one of these, quietly producing exceptional spirit since 1825. This expression is no exception, achieving a subtle, sweet balance from the years it spent in American oak.
An alluring bouquet of vanilla on the nose, accompanied by mandarin and hints of caramelised ginger. The palate is full and rich with pronounced malty sweetness, a touch of cloves and butterscotch.
Bring out the sweetness with either a classic Crème Brûlée or dark chocolate infused with caramelised orange peel.
