Glencadam Aged 13 Years Reserve de Sauternes Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: 13 Years Old Country: Scotland
The Glencadam distillery was founded in 1825 and produces 1.5 million litres of spirit annually. The distillery has two stills and is situated near the River Esk in the Highland region of Scotland. It takes the water for its spirit from nearby springs in the surrounding green hills. The current owners are Angus Dundee plc who purchased the distillery in 2003 and also own the Tomintoul distillery in Speyside. The whisky produced at this distillery is an important component of Ballentine’s blends. Expect floral with notes of orange and citrus fruits. It has a refined dark oak undertone and is an elegant single malt whisky.
The Glencadam Reserve de Sauternes was distilled in 2008 and has initially been matured in ex-bourbon American oak casks before being transferred to casks which previously held Sauternes wine. The result is a whisky with traditional Glencadam notes and flavours but with bold, zesty and fruity notes to boost this whisky to exceptional status. Matured for no less than 13 years and bottled at 46% ABV.
