Interesting fact… Glencadam 30 Year Old 1982 (cask 730) - Limited Edition whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glencadam 30 Year Old 1982 (cask 730) - Limited Edition whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Fragrant vanilla, heather honey, citrus and toffee notes.
Palate: More creamy toffee, staying on the light side with lifted fragrant notes, apple blossom.
Finish: Long and creamy, hedgerows.
Overall: Wonderfully matured Highland whisky.
Sampled this amazing dram at the Whiskey Experience in Edinburgh in April of 2014. It was mind-blowing. Having just sampled some rather highly smokey selections, the contrast of this ultra creamy Glencadam was so quietly amazing that it just stopped me in my tracks. So many creamy layers and the vanilla was prevalent but not overly forward. Sampled bottle 113 and purchased bottle 50......so pleased I did!
