A tasty Glencadam with a nose to die for. If you haven't tasted a malt from this distillery, this would be a great place to start.

Tasting Notes:
Bottler's Tasting Notes

Nose:  Orange, citrus and cereals - like a breakfast table!

Palate:  Replicates the nose, with marmalade notes.

Finish:  Long, with a late and dry smokeyness.

Tasting Notes by TF

Nose: Very pleasant apple blossom & honey initially, develops sweet orange citrus notes, danish pastry, maramalade, tinned pears and more floral notes. Develops to apple pie. The kind of nose you want to cut a slice of and take around with you.

Palate:  Oaky spice on the entry, then lemon curd and green apples.  Quite dominant oak and less sweet than the nose would suggest.

Finish:  Drying oak spices and apple, with a delicate astringency.

Comment:  The palate can't quite live up to the sublime nose, but still a lovely whisky from this somewhat obscure distillery. Possibly bottled just a tad late.
