Glencadam Origin 1825 70 CL 40%

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glencadam Origin 1825 is named after the year of the distillery’s foundation. For this whisky, the master blender has selected and combined whiskey from American oak bourbon casks, as well as whiskey which has been aged in casks that previously contained sherry. This helps to give complexity, notes of dried fruit and spices. A delicious, easy-drinking whiskey that can be enjoyed by most people.

Color: Warm golden.
Scent: Light and delicate. Pickled pears, malt and butter cream.
Tasting notes: Medium body with notes of vanilla, citrus fruits, marzipan and apple pie.

Serving suggestion: Should be enjoyed neat.

Glencadam, with its distinctive red chimney, is located in Brechin, as one of the few surviving distilleries in the East Highlands. The distillery was built in 1825 – not long after a new Excise Act in 1823 made distillation legal on a larger scale in Scotland. Since 2003 the distillery has been owned by Angus Dundee, and since 2005 the distillery has been running 24/7. However, not much has changed in the production method at Glencadam. You still have a mash tun made of cast iron and two pot stills, which are designed in a way that gives a quite light and elegant spirit. The two original dunnage warehouses from 1825 are still in use.

Only a limited portion of the whiskey is still bottled as single malt, as the vast majority of production is used in blends. Angus Dundee owns, among other things, the brands Scottish Royal, Glen Parker and The Dundee, and one must assume that a large proportion of these is Glencadam. Fortunately, there is also a renewed focus on single malt – especially since Angus Dundee took over. In 2016, the entire core range was reformed. Glencadam neither chill filters nor colors the whiskey with caramel.
