8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.78 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Sherry - sweet, red fruits, juicy blood oranges, in good balance with delicious Bourbon barrel wood flavors Taste: Alcoholic sharpness covers the first seconds of everything, even at the second sip (although 15 minutes in the glass), slightly sweet - extremely dry sherry, astringent wood aromas without bitterness - oak, oak, oak the mouth is dry, prickle on the tongue , Bourbon barrel vanilla, lemon zest, delicious tart oak spicy full bodied, the bourbon barrel is dominant, the finish plays only a minor role
    Conclusion: no uncomplicated malt, no sherry bomb, interesting flavors if you got used to the unusual alcohol, I would also be too expensive for 95 €

    Heather, leather, a mix of forest fruits, raisins, orange, cherry bonbons and a hint of balsamic vinegar.

    Here I make it easy, because I've just tasted the Glencadam 17yo Portwood (WID: 66192). The Portwood was fresher and lighter. The Oloroso is a bit darker and heavier. Otherwise, they are already relatively comparable in nature. I liked the Portwood a little better, because for me something interesting.
    A bottle does not necessarily have to be.

  5. detachedblue scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A conventional dram, only 5% of the distillery outputs were bottled as single malt, but not very impressive to my taste.
    • Nose
      Modern style, vanilla, a little sherry influence
    • Taste
      Vanilla, mango, cherries and dates from sherried oak, some bitterness
    • Finish
      Long and dry, mints and leather

    Let's remind ourselves that Glencadam is an Eastern Highlands distillery near the coast in Brechin, which lies in-between Aberdeen and Dundee. It could easily form part of an Eastern Highlands distillery tour, starting with Glenury Royal to Fettercairn, and then on to Glencadam before heading south to Daftmill, Edenmill and Kingsbarns.

    N: With a larger presence than the 18yo LINK, brought about by some meaty sherry casks.

    T: Big, savoury<sweet sherry malt

    F: Lots & lots of oloroso

    C: Very nice although i find the finish somewhat cavalier.
