  1. Pyromann scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Reminds me of Glenmorangie 10 in a beginning. Malty and buttery notes, still pretty intense. On the palate interestingly combined with smoke.
    • Nose
      Soft matiness, buttery notes.
    • Taste
      Maltiness, buttery notes again. Smokey punch unexpectedly, sharpness, acridity

    I do enjoy some salinity in my whisky and in that regard, Glencadam 10 year old gets a tick in my book. In others, it is perhaps a little too generic and doesn’t really highlight the distillery characteristics quite as much as you’d hope for. Overall though a solid entry-level whisky at around £35.

    • Nose
      Light and fresh. Toffee and buttered popcorn mix it up with some yeasty malts, citrus (lemon curd?) and vanilla. There’s something rather steely here – almost akin to copper that hints at the relative youth of the whisky.
    • Taste
      A sweet and sharp arrival with a pleasant mouthfeel. Alongside our buttery malts and toffee notes, there’s some earthy hay here and more oak spicing than was perceivable on the nose – salty and brininess run right through the heart of this whisky.
    • Finish
      Medium in length and again highlighting salinity.

    I have never seen a lighter whisky, almost like an old Willi. He smells surprisingly mild, slightly fruity, apple compote for his age. The 46% you notice, strong start, yet very pleasant in the taste. I can easily taste vanilla, some cloves, all in all very fruity, slightly spicy. Really good for his age and the price!

    Colour: Gold.
    Nose: Light, fresh, grassy, slightly earthy and on
    apples.
    Taste: Spicy to very spicy, a bit rough, light in flavours, fresh, on
    straw, with some bitterness. Diluted, it becomes quite smoky. The finish is
    medium to long, dry, a bit rough, bitter and on dry grass.
    General
    Impression: A "wild west" whisky in mutation. There are some interesting
    flavours, but unbalanced.

    84/85.
    • Nose
      A very dominant sweetness, like peach candy. Then lime. Furthermore some orange, vanilla sugar and caramel.
    • Taste
      Again that sweet peach candy, but also more bitterness (almond-like) and caramel. Orange, lime, vanilla sugar, malt and a little smoke.
    • Finish
      Caramel, peach, almond, orange, lime and smoke.
