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.

Comments

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.

Ich habe noch nie einen helleren Whisky gesehen, fast wie ein alter Willi. Er riecht für sein Alter erstaunlich mild, leicht fruchtig, Apfelkompott. Die 46% merkt man, kräftiger Antritt, dennoch sehr angenehm im Geschmack. Ich schmecke leicht Vanille, etwas Nelken, alles in allem sehr fruchtig, leicht würzig. Für sein Alter und den Preis echt gut!

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.

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.

Surprisingly good 10yo Whisky. Score is for the first batch released of this Whisky (date of bottling: 24th of November 2008)

You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
