Holy bananas Batman! This is definitely a sweeter dessert style scotch. The nose is fruity and bananas. The palate follows this theme and the finish adds a bit of zing, but not really any heat. I strangely enjoyed it actually, and would recommend to others as long as you set the expectation around the sweetness level. Skip the chocolate cake after your fancy steak and pour a dram of this instead!
A very surprising offering from a Distillery that i have yet to explore a little more. I believe this one is the cheapest in their core range and it is actually a good dram.
Bottled at 40%abv, golden color.
On the nose, a very fresh and appealing aroma. Very fresh apples. Honey; a super fresh lemon. Toffee and a thick vanilla note. The citric is very interesting. After a first sip the aroma dropped dramatically but a citric ghostly aroma persists. Floral. I wasn't sure at first but there is salt somewhere.
On the palate, it changed a lot in every sip. Starts with almonds and a bitter nutty flavor. The second sip gave me a nice toffee and this sensation of licking an envelope to glue it. A third sip released raw rice and apple sider.
Aftertaste passed the exam. Crushed almonds. Hazelnut. The most almondy whisky ever. Nice oaky spice, very dim but somewhow it works. Stewed apples.
Overall this is whisky with a lot of tasting and aroma notes, something that i did not expect because of its low price. This is my second Glencadam of this year and both have surprised me in a good way. My score for it, 81 over 100.
Cask type - American white oak, Oloroso sherry finish.

Pleasant flavours of sandthorn berries, mimosa, acid drops and sugar candies. Unexpected, challenging but not unpleasant aftertaste of gasoline. Quite nice and not that simple whisky.
