Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Oaky notes dominate along with butter, toffee, Nutella and tangerine. Water brings out sweet butter, cooked fruits, peach and syrup. A woodier note as it develops.
Palate: Pretty dry. Lots of spice and vanilla. Rounded and silky.
Finish: Vanilla and black fruits.
Comment: Fuller and yet somehow crisper than the 16 Years Old.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Smoky, dry.
Palate: At first, the sensation of soft spring water. Then the development of the creaminess that is the house character, with fruity and peppery notes gradually emerging.
Finish: Woody. Orange boxes.
Comment: Showing its age, but still with the distillery character. Glencadam has its devotees and, with the distillery's future uncertain, supplies are finite.
