Glencadam Reserva Andalucia
Glencadam // Highlands, Scotland
Glencadam Reserva Andalucia celebrates the long history the distillery has with sourcing casks from Andalucia, the world famous sherry region in Spain. This single malt first matured in standard bourbon casks but was finished for a minimum of 12 months in first-fill oloroso sherry casks. Released in September 2020.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"The Glencadam Reserva Andalucia is pretty light and certainly not a sherry bomb. A touch of rhubarb, but then creamy caramel and a bunch of berries. The palate is sweet and oily—rather more sugary and fudge-y. There's a layer of spiciness and nuttiness in the background. A nice entry-level malt that works on several levels."
