Glencadam OB 15yo 40%alc. [New]
Released in April 2005 by the new owners. Anyone like to volanteer a tasting note?
This from customer Patterson:
I'm surprised you haven't reviewed this yet as it's a damn good whisky.
I'd have said it was like Glen Garioch with extra honey - but creamy is a good way of putting it. There's some treacle too.
Basically this is a good medium-heavy malt without island smoke. There's a bit of sherry but I think it's mainly wood flavour you're getting -definitely vanilla (real from the pod not the bottle of synthetic stuff). I get a certain amount of heather as well, but overall it's an autumn walk in aon oakwood with someone baking treacle tarts in the forester's cottage.
LFW seems to offer it for a reasonable price, but around here it is more expensive (around 50-55 euros), which makes it unattractive compared to some other 15yo whiskies (e.g. glenfarclas), especially at 40%.
