Glencadam Distillery launches limited edition of its Highland Single Malt – Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish Aged 19 Years
A limited quantity of Glencadam Highland Single Malt, aged 19 years, has been released. The Sherry cask “Finish” has been created by the careful selection of mature whisky “finished” in Oloroso Sherry butts. The malt whisky was transferred from Bourbon casks into the hand-picked butts to “finish” its maturation for a generous period of time. This process of “finishing” bestows on the whisky refined characteristics, most notably, tones of Sherry sweetness. Our Master Distiller deemed that the time was right to bottle the whisky at 19 years of age when the malt whisky flavour notes had reached harmony with the rich, raisiny and fruit cake characteristics of the Sherry wood.
Just 6000 bottles were produced from the Sherry butts and each bottle is individually numbered. The result is an “enriched” and beautifully crafted Glencadam Highland Single Malt expression.
Ripe Golden Barley
Sweet and inviting with aromas of milk chocolate and toffee mingled with toasted walnuts, dried fruits and a subtle whiff of cigar smoke.
Creamy and rich with layers of chocolate raisins, almond nougat, butterscotch candies and dried figs followed by sweet clove spices.
Initially sweet with notes of salted caramel and chocolate mousse fading into toasty cinnamon and nutmeg spices leaving a faint, maple linger.
