"The Exceptional" Glencadam 21 year old is a multiple Gold Medal winner at the Scotch Whisky Masters.
The Glencadam distillery was founded in 1825 and is situated near the River Esk in the Highland region of Scotland. It takes the water for its spirit from nearby springs in the surrounding green hills. This elegant single malt is quite floral with notes of orange and citrus fruits.
Multi-award winning Glencadam Highland Single Scotch Malt Whisky Aged 21 Years is a fine example of centuries of craftsmanship and tradition. It's nicknamed “The exceptional” malt for good reason, with a beautifully lingering, delicate flavour. Matured in ex-Bourbon barrels for no less than 21 years this whisky is bottled at 46% abv with no colour added, no additives, & it’s unchillfiltered.
Nose: Buttery and sweet with notes of tropical fruits, citrus, marmalade, toast, and custard.
Palate: Spicy and tingling on the tongue with oak-led spices, vanilla, cinnamon and allspice, creamy pineapple and hints of coconut alongside toasted barley.
Finish: Good length with some oaky dryness and tropical fruit.
