      Nose: heavy sherry, also a deep smell like thawny port. Dark fruit. Taste: very sweet, bit thangy. A syrupy sweetness. Honeysuckle and blackberry. Compared to the smell, the taste is a bit less impressive and slightly unbalanced towards the sugary sweet taste. Finish: long lasting finish of honeysuckle, fudge and dark chocolate. Sweetness lasts the longest.

      I never cared about Glencadam too much, i always thought of it as a second or third line distillery, not able to compete with others that are far better. I even bought this sample just because it wasn't too expensive and only because i try to review as many whiskies as possible. But... this dram taught me a lesson. This whisky was very good and almost got a 4.5 stars score, something that is absolutely surprising for me, due to my previous prejudice of this distillery. As you might have guessed already, this Reserva AndalucĂ­a is the Sherried expression of Glencadam. Bottled at 46%abv, tawny color. On the nose very light with some nice interesting notes. Starts woody, with sawdust notes. Gooseberries, lemon, pepper, farm fruits. There is this aroma of plastic from water balloons and a cheap strawberry candy. A wonderful note of cotton candy is also present. After two sips, the aroma changed, giving me a beautiful mixture of lemon, Chocolate and hazelnut. On the palate, it is complex and changes with each sip. Red fruits, grapefruit, very light and dim spiciness. A second sip gave me a cherry flavored cough syrup for kids. The third sip was all about milk chocolate and ginger. Nice. Aftertaste was very straightforward but very pleasant. A very gentle and delicious smokey note, hay and chocolate. Overall this was a very good whisky, i thoroughly enjoyed. Completely surprising, with interesting flavor and aroma notes and a hint of smoke. The only weakness i detect is that it is very light. Really a nice offering, my score for it is 89 over 100.
