  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Light and easy whisky.
    Simple but honest, good value for money.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Slightly citiric white wine.
      Sweet, vanilla wood.
      Simple but fresh and delicate.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Arrives with a close to neutral texture.
      Banana and sweet yellow fruits.
      Light bitterness on the arrival of the spice but it doesn't last long.
      Peppery spicy builds. Not hot, but pleasantly warming.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length.
      Sugar sweetness, ripe banana with spices fading.

    Glencadam 10 years, 46% alc. Original bottling. Expansion: Bourbon barrels

    Nose: fruity citrus aromas, limes and grapefruit, fresh and slightly tart apples, pear compote and dry cedar wood, hay meadow.

    Palate: malt, muesli and lemon juice, passion fruit and pineapple. This is accompanied by pleasant oak aromas and a little pepper. There is also a little peppermint to be found.

    Finish: Long and dry, carries on like on the palate. The oak picks up a little more speed, pepper and tobacco complement the fruity notes.

    Conclusion: The character of Glencadam goes wonderfully with bourbon barrels, a really strong bottling - despite the fact that it is only 10 years old. The distillery did everything right here. 86/100 points (2021)

    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.
    As Peatbogger says it is a decent dram for a decent price.
    It's not pulling up trees but as summer drams go it would be nice to have handy.
    • Nose

      I think I've just walked into a sweet shop and I've just bought a bag of banana foam.
      And we are talking pear drops and rhubarb and custard.
      Custard cream biscuits, felt tip pen and water colour paint.
      It really is quite extraordinary that whisky can so differ and that is why we love it.
    • Taste
      85 85
      I was expecting it to be just like sucking on a boiled sweet but there is a bit more to it.
      Sweet and spicy and that balance is good.
      Some woody notes and they are new.
      It is not as bananary as the nose was but it is there.
      There is also some grape and melon.
    • Finish
      82 82
      The finish just lets it down a little, it is quite short but I'm not going to punish it because there are no bum notes.

  4. Marcel74 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    One of the better cheap standard distillery bottlings, unchilfiltered, natural color and 46%…. As it should be, a beautiful nominee in the OSWA's… a top whisky for this age
    • Nose
      Citrus, freshly cut grass, hay, and a little spice from the barrel with sweet bourbon notes of tropical fruit, banana! mango peach and pears
    • Taste
      Soft entrance, nice development of citrus and sweetness (pears and banana) and spiciness
    • Finish
      The finish is slightly dry and short, with barley notes and spices

  5. JoachimV scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      84 84
      Alcohol marker, warm pears, sour apples, lime juice, a meadow with daisies and buttercups.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Lime, pears, white grapes, sour apples, honey and pepper.
    • Finish
      81 81
      medium length. The aftertaste is drying, sour and somewhat bitter.

      The whisky is not bad, but I find it a bit too sour, especially in the aftertaste.

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    An entry level young whisky. There could have been used more active casks, this is a bit underage imho. Price-quality wise.... a standard Glenlivet is more tasty, this is a different dram.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Little sour citrus, some honey, some freshness. Not your typical speysider, but it certainly has it's notes.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Little thin, more sour then sweetness. Some young wood. Not much to complain, not much outstanding either.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium length. Again the sourness of the citrus shows up. Little bitter note in the end.

  9. Jolemann scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      83 83
      Reminiscent of single grain, pears, sour cherries, later nice maltiness is added
    • Taste
      84 84
      Powerful, apples, maltiness, oak spice
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium - short, slightly bitter, dry at the end
