Glencadam's 17-year-old Triple Cask Portwood has spent the last five years of maturation in port casks, after an initial maturation in bourbon casks. The distillery opened in 1825 and has operated under the radar for much of its existence, although that's slowly starting to change. The entire Glencadam range is bottled at a respectable 46% ABV and is non-chill filtered and natural in color.

Tasting Notes

"Surprisingly, this isn't necessarily cask driven and certainly very well integrated. Fresh red fruits like cherries and strawberries, but also a touch of star anise. The palate is rather creamy. It's spicy in a subtle way and a bit wine-y, but there's dark chocolate, brambles, tobacco leaves and cherries as well. Overall a rich, succulent single malt."
