Halfway between Dundee and Aberdeen you’ll find the village Brechin, where the Glencadam Distillery was founded in 1825 (near the closed North Port-Brechin distillery, by the way). In 2003 the distillery was taken over by Angus Dundee Distillers PLC (who also own Tomintoul) that – besides bulk delivery to Ballantine’s and Stewart’s Cream of the Barely – really put this gentle Highlander on the map as a single malt. This 15 Year Old is labelled ‘The Rather Dignified’.

Soft and very accessible nose on citrus fruit, vanilla, freshly cut grass with a hint of coconut, mint and green grapes.

Very creamy on the palate with an immediate big pepperiness. Then a truckload of sweet and sour citrus fruit explodes on your palate. The whole is wrapped in vanilla and sweet barley sugars. A floral note shines through. Very fresh and summery.

The finish is medium long on more of the same.

Nothing earth shattering, but very honest for that price (around 60 EUR).
