    Whiskyfun:

    Glencadam 1974/2001 (59.9%, MacKillop's Choice) Colour: full gold. Nose: wowie! An amazing nose, very fresh and superbly fruity (mostly on crystallized oranges and tangerines) at first but getting rather much more unusual after a moment. Something rubbery (tyre inner tube), with also notes of grilled meat and something I already got a while ago: a mixture of orange juice, olive oil and honey (I know that sounds weird). Develops on strongly flavoured pipe tobacco, leather saddle, mint syrup, old rancio… Whiffs of wood smoke. Sort of organic, very, very ‘different’. Extremely interesting to nose this one. Mouth: very creamy and very fruity, sort of concentrated as if somebody added fruit reductions to it. Lots of punch of course, developing on strawberry jam, armagnac soaked prunes, fruit and chocolate ganache… It starts then to taste like cough syrup, sweet wine reduction, strong grappa… Very unusual indeed! And the finish is very long, coating, on blackberry jelly and orange liqueur, getting maybe just a tad too ‘sour and bitter’. A sherry-treated cask? Anyway, quite a beast, very interesting. 88 points(90+ without that slightly sourish finish).
