Glencadam 10 Year Old

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Glencadam 10 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Glencadam 10 Bottling Note

This was first released in 2008 under the new ownership of Angus Dundee. Glencadam 10 stands as a delicate, balanced dram, neither coloured nor chill-filtered so it retains its true flavour.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Glencadam 10 Year Old Reviews

Light and delicious

Don't let the colour fool you - this dram is really easy to sip and develops a long lingering taste with each mouthful. Lovely light floral nose laced with subtle wood and and palate mix of vanilla, custard and stone fruit.

For its price its excellent value and will be enjoyed by those who like lighter coloured whisky

Try it!

A fantastic whisky - very light in colour, but extremely complex and well balanced. A bargain!

Great but expensive 10 yo

I can very much understand why this whisky is said to be one of the best 10 yo out there. Very balanced and refined and I guess you could say 'delicate' although I find this is too often used for whiskies that are actually just weak in taste, which is not the case here.

Although this might very well be one of the best 10 Year olds it is most certainly one of the most expensive 10 Year olds, which is why I only gave it 3.5 stars; for just €10 more you can get a Benriach 16 which is in an entirely different league.

Smooth and subtle

Just blind tasted at the ninth tee. Surprised by the lightness for this proof but very very smooth and subtle. I would normally add water but no need here. Nice save, previous reviewer, and, although I think you are taking the mick with your description, it's surprisingly accurate. I love everything from Glenfiddich to Ardbeg, and will definitely be revisiting Glencadam

I admit being too thick headed on previous review... Highland malts are incredible. This one is a bit too delicate for my taste... definitely hay on the palate and sunset summer fields on the finish.

What a waste

'Rather delicate'? Really compared to what?!! Highland whiskey so far is turps... I'll stick to smooth purity with Speyside thank you

Whisky at its purest

Fresh, vibrant. Light in color. Big in malty flavor with oak spice. It needs a few drops of water to open the nose and release some citrus notes. Another example where a whisky is better because in is not chill filtered and not colored.

8th September 2016

Very Good

Light, but not short flavour and mouthfeel. As well, a outstanding finish for a none peated young scotch

22nd August 2016

Good Value

Very good value for the price. Easy to dink neat or on the rocks with a soda. Very light, no heavy favors. Strong finish that lets you know it's good to drink scotch.

orrendo!!!! jim murray ha assegnato 95 punti a questo whisky? forse era ubriaco.....ho assaggiato tanti whisky e questo è uno dei peggiori in assoluto,costa come un glen garioch 12 e non vale nemmeno la metà.......

25th May 2016

Good Value Dram

A very light, grassy, fruity whisky with lots of vanilla and a soft creamy malt finish. I also get slight waxy/play-doh notes. Very good mouth feel and a touch of water softens nicely. Much better now its sat for a few weeks.

I would say if you like the 'lighter' whiskies you'll find this very enjoyable and good value. Very good for drinking this time of year.

This doesn't have red lipstick and high heal's to woo you.
This is a light complex subtle and very well crafted whisky

Great 10 Year Old

Very drinkable. Light palate and nose, fruity favour.

1st April 2016


I'm not sure why this is rated as high as it is by previous reviews. I suspect that it's non chill filled status and higher than usual ABV has clouded judgment. They both have merit, but here we have a whisky relying on them as selling points. There's a modicum of indiscernible sweetness and little else. A huge disappointment.

27th March 2016

Very good

A drop of water takes off any rough edges and leaves a smooth and gentle malt, with a delicate freshness born in the countryside and appreciable to one that grew up in Gloucestershire. I'm at the tail-end of a bottle of the 10 year and intend to replace it with the 15. Lovely!

Now, get off moy laand.

Better than I'd thought

Definitely vanilla on the nose. On first sip, slightly harsh, but mellows out to that fruity vanilla taste.

Not the best ,but worth a drink at the price.

30th December 2015


one of the best whiskies that you can buy at this price, only marginally behind the Tamdhu 10. Close to perfect thoush. Love it.

Tally Ho - Found something!

Came into my favourite speciality supermarket; scanned curiosly through the Whisky stand; saw and bought it.

Ceterum censeo: the dram of dreams; complex, fruity and yes i like hot Spirit! We still are talking of Whisky - not TEA, aren`t we!!

One of the best choices, if you are looking for an alternative too much more expensive Highland Malts.

Thumbs -and Drams- up!!

Wonderful quality

Smooth, still full of flavour; vanilla, honey, 46% un-chill filtered. A hidden gem!

21st January 2015

The Chaps are correct but . .

Great nose but very hot spirit. Even after 15ml of water to 30ml spirit this was stil nippy on the side and top.

20th June 2014

Man, what a dram

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.

The mymic

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.

10th December 2013

The finest £30 whisky you can buy.

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.

1st September 2013


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.

13th May 2013


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
