    Aroma: delicate, initially malt-bread, honey, wax, paraffin, dusty books. Over time, distinct grassiness is added, - fragrant hay, dried linden blossom; canned peach, apple jam, light saltiness, all this harmonizes very well with bread and honey notes.

    Taste: caramel sweetness, honey, canned pineapples and peaches, sweet syrup from them, light ginger pungency, herbal tea with honey and lemon, zest, minerality.

    Finish: medium length, ginger, orange liquor, zest, minerals, spiced wood, grassy bitterness, slightly dried at the end.

    Rating: 87

    Bottom line: the reference bourbon malt, delicate, at the same time saturated and rich in nuances, for its not so long exposure, feels a little older than this age. In comparison with 10 and 13 years from the same Glencadam, there are two heads higher, although the generic grassy-honey, malt-citrus notes here are also palpable, but more delicate and additional exotic fruits.
    Great option for price / quality!
