Historic East Highland distillery Glencadam has announced the release of two new limited edition cask finishes, as part of its award-winning single malt age statement range -
- Glencadam 2008 15-year-old Reserva de Madeira - Madeira cask finish
- Glencadam 2006 17-year-old Reserva PX - Pedro Ximenez Sherry Quarter cask finish
Specially crafted by Master Distiller Robert Fleming, the limited-edition expressions have been matured in exceptional American oak ex-bourbon casks – true to the distillery’s signature style. Each expression has then been expertly married and finished in carefully selected casks.
Glencadam 2008 15-year-old Reserva de Madeira uses the finest wine casks sourced from Portugal’s Madeira Islands. With a limited release of just 5,826 individually numbered bottles, its flavour profile is sweet and nutty with inviting aromas of butterscotch and ginger biscuits, mingled with caramelised pecans, dried pineapple and baking spices.
The Glencadam 2006 17-year-old Reserva PX is finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry quarter casks from Andalucia, Spain, imparting distinct flavours which highlight its rich and fruity character. With only 4,188 individually numbered bottles available, the single malt promises a magnificent and richly layered finish with indulgent aromas of sticky toffee pudding, black cherries, salted caramel and maple syrup, merged with dark berries and cocoa powder.
Both expressions are bottled at 46% alc/vol, non-chill filtered and at natural colour to retain the whisky’s original characteristics.
