A limited quantity of Glencadam Highland Single Malt, aged 19 years, has been released. The Sherry cask “Finish” has been created by the careful selection of mature whisky “finished” in Oloroso Sherry butts. The malt whisky was transferred from Bourbon casks into the hand-picked butts to “finish” its maturation for a generous period of time. This process of “finishing” bestows on the whisky refined characteristics, most notably, tones of Sherry sweetness. The Master Distiller deemed that the time was right to bottle the whisky at 19 years of age when the malt whisky flavour notes had reached harmony with the rich, raisiny and fruit cake characteristics of the Sherry wood.
Just 6000 bottles were produced from the Sherry butts and each bottle is individually numbered. The result is an “enriched” and beautifully crafted Glencadam Highland Single Malt expression.
Colour – Ripe golden barley
Nose – Sophisticated pot-pourri of floral malt, raisiny fruit cake with Sherry notes merging with mocha chocolate and crushed walnuts
Palate – Mature barley-malt elements are balanced by the rich flavours of fruit cake, mixed nuts and raisins gently drying to embrace some cigar box spiciness
Finish – Wonderfully complex and sumptuous
