Nose
Smoky, dry.
Palate
At first, the sensation of soft spring water. Then the development of the creaminess that is the house character, with fruity and peppery notes gradually emerging.
Finish
Woody. Orange boxes.
Comment
Showing its age, but still with the distillery character. Glencadam has its devotees and, with the distillery's future uncertain, supplies are finite.

Dave Broom

75
Nose
Oaky notes dominate along with butter, toffee, Nutella and tangerine. Water brings out sweet butter, cooked fruits, peach and syrup. A woodier note as it develops.
Palate
Pretty dry. Lots of spice and vanilla. Rounded and silky.
Finish
Vanilla and black fruits.
Comment
Fuller and yet somehow crisper than the 16 Years Old.
