Glencadam Origin 1825 Review

Glencadam Origin 1825 I’ve not experienced a lot of Glencadam, in fact this is the first distillery bottling i've reviewed which is shocking, it’s almost a bit of a forgotten distillery for me and i know i really should be drinking more of it, so i’m excited to taste this Origin 1825 expression.

It’s fruity on the nose and palate and definite easy drinker, lots of good things to be said about this dram, yes it’s young as well but it’s got seriously lovely drinkability, a proper tasty session drammer.

This is one that could easily become a must keep in the whisky cupboard.

i really need to look out more from this distillery and give it a try.

Great value for money too at around £30 a bottle from Master of Malt and other specialists.
