I'm a fan of Glencadam, but not this time.
12 Years Old Portwood
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Pale piggy pink in hue and a nose that's reminiscent of dilute cranberry\rand raspberry juice, green grapes, uncooked rhubarb and underneath\rthe faintest touch of butter.
Palate: Slightly fizzy, fermenting grape juice. Light and quite delicate. Water makes\rit more floral with some icing sugar.
Finish: Tart red fruits.
Comment: I'm a fan of Glencadam, but not this time.
Nose: Strange peachy pink colour isn't encouraging. Syrupy fruit punch,\rsweet, rich and fresh.
Palate: Sweet and full, with lots of summery fruit notes, with over ripe melon and\rstrawberries in the mix, some flora, rosewater notes. Late spice.
Finish: Quite long, full and fruity, with a nice spice flourish to sign it off.
Comment: Summer dessert whisky from another little known Highland gem.
