Nose
Pale piggy pink in hue and a nose that's reminiscent of dilute cranberry and raspberry juice, green grapes, uncooked rhubarb and underneath the faintest touch of butter.
Palate
Slightly fizzy, fermenting grape juice. Light and quite delicate. Water makes it more floral with some icing sugar.
Finish
Tart red fruits.
Comment
I'm a fan of Glencadam, but not this time.

Nose
Strange peachy pink colour isn't encouraging. Syrupy fruit punch, sweet, rich and fresh.
Palate
Sweet and full, with lots of summery fruit notes, with over ripe melon and strawberries in the mix, some flora, rosewater notes. Late spice.
Finish
Quite long, full and fruity, with a nice spice flourish to sign it off.
Comment
Summer dessert whisky from another little known Highland gem.
