Angus Dundee Glencadam 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A very unusual whisky. I liked it, but it would benefit from a firmer malty middle to support the interesting component flavours.
Berry's Own Selection Glencadam 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 A pleasant freshener. Delivers a lot. To be enjoyed on a warm day with raw fish and salad.
Berry's Own Selection Glencadam 1973
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 A ripe dram which seems to have headed across to Kentucky. Big and lush.
Berry's Own Selection Glencadam 1991
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A dram for a sweet tooth. Nearly sugary. Unbalanced.
Chieftain's Choice Glencadam 1985, 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Graceful and characterful. To be sipped on a midsummer starlit night. A true dancing dram.
Dewar Rattray Glencadam 1975 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.40% 8 A dazzling quality you only get when cask and spirit have been in a long slow dance.
Glencadam 12 Years Old Portwood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 I'm a fan of Glencadam, but not this time.
Glencadam 14 Years Old Sherrywood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 On the surface all smiles and amenability but like a David Lynch film there's darkness lurking underneath.
Glencadam 17 Years Old Triple Cask Portwood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A lovely, robust, mouth-filling malt with an impressive finish.
Glencadam 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A pleasant, unpretentious and straightforward Highland malt.
Glencadam 19 Years Old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 9 Whisky like this makes tasting an absolute pleasure.
Glencadam 1978 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Good, but for me just lacks the extra layer of complexity to lift it to the next level.
Glencadam 1983 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Elegant and complex. Highly recommended.
Glencadam 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.30% 7 Lingering, summery and takes ages to finish. Like a good Test Match.
Glendronach 14 Years Old Virgin Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Full and rich.
Kingsbury Glencadam 1971, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60% 7 Lacks roundness, structure, balance. I was sorry to hear that this distillery has been closed. Temporarily?
Mackillop's Choice Glencadam 1974, Cask 10
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90% 7 Showing its age, but still with the distillery character. Glencadam has its devotees and, with the distillery's future uncertain, supplies are finite.
Old Malt Cask Glencadam 21 Years Old 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 7 Well balanced and with real charm and some complexity.
Signatory Silent Stills Glencadam 29 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.50% 7 This whisky used to remind me of strawberry shortcake. This bottling turns me toward tiramisu.
