Glencadam Distillery launches two limited edition cask finishes


East Highland distillery Glencadam has released two new limited edition cask finishes, as part of its award-winning single malt age statement range crafted by Master Distiller Robert Fleming.


The Glencadam 15-year-old Reserva de Madeira was distilled in 2008 and uses the finest wine casks sourced from Portugal’s Madeira Islands. With a limited release of just 5,826 individually numbered bottles, its flavour profile is sweet and nutty with aromas of butterscotch and ginger biscuits, mingled with caramelised pecans, dried pineapple and baking spices.

Distilled in 2006, the Glencadam 17-year-old Reserva PX is finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry quarter casks from Andalucia, Spain, and has distinct flavours which highlight its rich and fruity character. With only 4,188 individually numbered bottles available, the single malt promises a richly layered finish with aromas of sticky toffee pudding, black cherries, salted caramel and maple syrup, merged with dark berries and cocoa powder.

The Glencadam cask finishes are both part of a limited-run release, bottled at 46% alc/vol, non-chill filtered at natural colour to retain the whisky’s original characteristics. Both expressions are available to purchase from independent and specialist retailers across the UK. The Glencadam Madeira cask finish RRP is £110 and Glencadam 17-year-old Reserva PX RRP is £150
