Bottle has been open about 3 months. About a quarter left.
This is a very pale whisky. Natural colour. No chill filtration and bottled at 46%. So all the good stuff.
Quite solventy. Cut grass. A bit of lemon.
Young. So quite spirit driven. A lovely honey note is the main thing I pick up. Grass and lemons again. Also pear drops. Green apples, barley and initially a play doh note which was not overpowering but slightly off putting. This disappeared after I'd got about half way down the bottle.
Fairly long. Quite dry and oaky.
Not a statement malt by any stretch. But a goid example of a highland whisky. I was initially fairly unimpressed. But this has improved massively with time as I've got down the bottle.
Available at a very sensible price too at around £35 a bottle in the UK. That is excellent value for money.
Would I buy it again. Perhaps not. But it's definitely made me take note of Glencadam. I'll try something up the range from them in time. Maybe the 13 or 15.
