This whisky was blind tasted during the Blind Tasting Consortium’s 25th session, the whiskies were selected by Billy, @BillyCowan on Twitter.
Again very light gold in colour, the thin-ish swirl line beads up immediately, and creates an all over glass film and a few slow thick legs #BlindDrams
This has more depth and range on the nose for me. Chocolate dipped strawberries, a touch of lime, a slight menthol note, and pine freshness. #BlindDrams
Cream soda sweetness, and with more time a botanical feel creeps in. #BlindDrams
Nice mouthfeel on this one, quite oily, and a very much a fruity/spicy combo going on. Red cherries, cranberries, a little drying, red liquorice, strawberry jam tarts. Then ginger, cinnamon, star anise, mocha and digestive biscuits. #BlindDrams
More time and i’m getting grapefruit, bitter lemon, quite hot white peeper now too. #BlindDrams
Again medium long in length, and the palate is still nice and spicy. If anything i’m getting more fruits, guava, seared pineapple, and white grapes. #BlindDrams
Now, don’t tell anyone, but i have this bottle in my whisky cupboard, and i do enjoy it. Glencadam is a gentle dram, and distillery releases are nice, but you wish you could taste it at cask strength. This bottle is 62.5% ABV, and is easily drinkable at the strength.
My bottle wasn’t what i’d call overly expensive, £65 ish comes to mind, for a cask strength these days is pretty decent. My go to cask type is Ex bourbon, and this bottle will continue to be enjoyed until it’s gone.
