Color: deep gold.
Nose: malt, hay, tree sap, sourdough, ripe apples, mushy pears, orange peel. You can tell the years in the bottle, the aromas are slightly dusty and have also got a hint of old bottle flavor, malt coffee, some wet corrugated cardboard. After the first sip, a lot of resin, a little hawthorn blossom.
Mouth: Does not necessarily taste like 40%, but mainly after an old bottle. A lot of malt, some polished wood, then block malt afterwards, charred toasted bread, some fir honey. Burnt plastic, grape jelly.
Finish: Amazingly long, resinous, block malt and long drawn green tea.
Comment: I don't think it's bad, but it mostly lives from the old bottle flavor. Which means you can get everything from Ottonormalmalt to a layered bottle for 120 € (?, I don't know the actual auction price). My suggestion: take Glencadam 13 and leave it open for 2 days, then it probably tastes just as old school and has more percentages. Oh yes, drink quickly is recommended, otherwise a penetrative plastic note comes through ... 82 points.
