Glencadam American Oak Reserve

Glencadam American Oak Reserve has been specially created by our Master Distiller. He hand-selected the very finest bourbon barrels, made from American oak, in Kentucky, USA. These barrels were then shipped to Scotland, filled with new make Glencadam spirit, and carefully placed in Glencadam’s historic dunnage warehouses to be left to silently mature. After a number of years, our Master Distiller carefully selected the very best barrels to be  bottled as Glencadam American Oak Reserve Single Malt Scotch Whisky.


Rich Gold


Aromas of sweet vanilla pod and buttercream mingled with orchard fruits, golden raisin and hints of Turkish delight.


A wash of poached pear and apple blossom followed by acacia honey, roast chestnut, mocha and lemon rind.


Sweet cooked fruits, white grapes and apple crumble fading into a peppery cake spice linger.

Whisky Resource Note

There is no mention on the Bottle, Tube or website about filtration or colour, however, since the Reserva Andalucía states on the bottle/tube that is is not chill filtered and is natural colour, we will take the omission on the American Oak Reserve, that it is Chill filtered and colour adjusted.
