Glencadam is a small distillery compared with other scottish distilleries,
it’s located in the east of the highland region that is owned by Angus Dundee distiller since 2003.
Glencadam distilled their first spirit 1825 and was founded by George Cooper. Because of production stop somewhere between 2000-2003
Their 15yo dissapeared from the marked for a while but is back in their core range. What i like about them is that they have many age stated
whiskies in their core range which is not that usual now days.
Glencadam 15yo is a highland single malt aged in aged in oak barrels for 15 years. There is no chill filtration and no coloring added and its bottled
at 46% abv to give you some more strength and lift the flavours which I prefer!
Glencadam first opened in 1825, in the ancient city of Brechin.
This was the year that the first horse-drawn omnibuses were established in London,
the world’s first modern railway opened, with the first public train pulled by steam engine.
The distillery was owned by a David Scott and his descendants from 1827- 1891,
and during this period it was rented to various distillers.
Over the next few decades the distillery had a succession of owners.
Glencadam was finally bought by Angus Dundee Distillers on 1st June 2003,
an independent Scottish company. Angus Dundee restarted production immediately,
and we released our first ever single malt product,
Glencadam Single Malt Scotch Whisky Aged 15 Years, in December 2005.
The Glencadam Reserva Andalucia is first aged in Bourboun and sherry casks then
married together and finished in sherry casks from Jerez from the region Andalucía.
This whisky is bottled at 46% abv and its un-chill filtered with no color added.
