Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
What's in a name? Glencadam 10 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glencadam 10 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Aromatic and fresh. Hay, fruit, gentle wood influence with light vanilla and spice.
Palate: Beautifully balanced with tart fruits, freshly cut hay and vanilla sweetness.
Finish: Long and gentle as it fades out on barley malt and fruit.
A superb whisky. I have tried many, many others. Just opened a second bottle to find myself pouring up to three glasses of Glencadam 10 in a row. Really great stuff. Complex, fantastic taste and a very stable whisky down to the end of the bottle.

One of the hidden gems of scotch. Natural colour, non-chill filtered 46%. Rich honey/hay nose, fruity palate, lemons, shortbread. The best £30 you'll ever spend on scotch. Try it full-stop.

This whisky never fails to bring a smile to my face...Stunning,complex and holds its own against much taller and more expensive company. I would be very interested in someone pointing out a finer dram for under £30.00. I have yet to find it.

A great value single malt and a good choice if your after something different from the usual. At 46% and NCF its a good choice for the whisky connoisseurs. Mouthwateringly moorish this whisky surprised me with its different angle on Highland malt, I love it and it will become one of my cabinet must have's. If you want an unpeated whisky that holds it own against more established distilleries this is certainly worth a look.

No brown dye, no chill-filtration and bottled at 46% - the distillery are showing respect, even before purchase. So I bought a bottle, simply for them three reasons and I certainly wasn't disappointed. This is great stuff! x
