The Glencadam distillery is nestled between the home of the local football club, Brechin and a municipal cemetery! Thankfully the whisky is just as interesting as the distillery's location.
Glencadam Origin 1825 is a break from tradition as this dram is bottled at 40% abv and no age statement.
A very special collection of casks was chosen for the Origin 1825 edition. The final selection consisted of a unique marriage of whisky matured in first-class American white-oak bourbon barrels with whisky “finished” in the finest Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts.
Nose: Creamy, floral malted barley with hints of vanilla that welcome the arrival of mixed summer fruits.
Palate: Bananas, pineapple, pears and boiled sweets merge with a delicious mix of soft spice.
Finish: Floral with pear-drop sweetness.
