Glencadam Distillery is relaunching its 18-year-old single malt after a recent hiatus.


The distillery in Angus, which dates back to 1825, paused production of its 18 Years Old Highland single malt due to a shortage of suitably aged liquid, which owner Angus Dundee Distillers said was related to the site being mothballed between 1999 and 2003.


But, with new inventory now available, the popular age-statement expression is being reintroduced. It will join Glencadam's core range, bridging the gap between its existing 15-year-old and 25-year-old single malts. 


The 18 Years Old is matured in ex-bourbon casks and is bottled at 46% ABV without chill filtration and with natural colour.


Glencadam master distiller Robert Fleming said: “It’s great to have the expression back. Beautifully balanced and creamy, it’s clear to see why there is such demand for Glencadam 18 Years Old Single Malt.


“With refined aromas of Glencadam’s signature tropical fruits and spice on the nose, the palate is complex and fruity giving way to a smooth, warm and long-lasting finish."


Glencadam 18 Years Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky will be available to purchase worldwide from 27 July from independent and specialist retailers in the UK, as well as Glencadam’s online shop, for £145 per 70cl bottle.
