Glencadam The Re-Awakening 13 Year
Glencadam // Highlands, Scotland
This was released in July 2017 from the Angus Dundee Distillers group as a limited edition bottling from the Glencadam Distillery. This Highland distillery was mothballed (fell dormant) in 2000 and re-opened three years later. This bottling is a result of the distillery's "reawakening". As is standard with their releases, this single malt is not chill-filtered and has no added coloring. 6000 bottles were produced and are individually numbered.
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.
"Glencadam's "Re-Awakening" whisky certainly awakens the palate with a bracing maritime quality. As the flavors unfold, it brings out notes of pear, jasmine, peppercorn, leather, and orange peel. This 13 year-old whisky is a welcome addition to the Highland landscape, and a very good value for the price as well."
