Whisky Reviews for Glencadam 1990 DR

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.36 points

  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Really not a watch of complexity, made very young and very speyside. Not bad but we could hope better.
    • Nose
      A lot of wood, apple and a little cinnamon. The return of German pastries?
    • Taste
      Sugar candy, syrup, wood, apple, traces of cinnamon
    • Finish
      Herbs, wood, cinnamon and syrup

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is a nice, sweet
    and spicy but otherwise little ambitious Glencadam. A good in betweener. Just
    under 60 EUR, which seems a fair price.
    • Nose
      The nose is fresh and
      very aromatic, not to say honeysweet. What stands out is a lot of vanilla and a
      good dose of coconut. Then some sugar candy and strawberry jam. The second
      layer consists of citrus and a touch of oak. Fresh and lively nose. With water,
      breakfast cereals with loads of sugar are added.
    • Taste
      The attack if
      powerful, fiery and alcoholic. A lot of pepper, ginger and some nutmeg. Now I
      also get some roasted nuts and more oak. Slightly burning, so let me add some
      water. Diluted it becomes sweeter and fruitier still, but also shows a lot more
      oak.
    • Finish
      The rather short
      finish remains spicy and ends slightly bitter from the oak and liquorice.

    Not
    a bad malt, if not a bit too trivial, too little happening & quite a few artificial fruit esters for
    the age on the tongue ( I wonder what would have happened after another 5-10 years...? The nose indicated great things...). There seems to be a peak after 1-2 hrs in the glass after
    which it goes down very quickly, especially in the nose.
    • Nose

      first:white
      wine +, malty sweetness +, flour-y o. (74)
      after
      a bit: opens up nicely. wood comes through (white/young) +/o, some
      green vegie & fruit notes o/- (banana/celery) inbetween. Then quite a few fresh
      fruits (orange-oil, mirabelles & red apples) +/o, some spices o,
      vanilla bean o, (88)
      later:
      zitronat (candied, waxy lemon & orange bits) o, some artificial
      perfumy notes o, vanilla pudding (creamy) +/o, wood becomes a bit
      older o. (83)
      later
      & w water: mixed spices (sachet) & vanilla marshmellow topped
      mushrooms (yep....wtf ?) (76)
    • Taste

      fruity
      malt sweetness with quite an astringent touch & some white
      chocolate (84)
    • Finish

      2nd
      malty sweetness comeback wave, this time with some wood dryness o,
      green tea o/-, and a touch of lemon & smoke -.(83)
