    Glencadam Distillery launches two limited edition cask finishes

    Historic East Highland distillery Glencadam has announced the release of two new limited edition cask finishes, as part of its single malt age statement range.

    Specially crafted by Master Distiller Robert Fleming, the limited-edition expressions – Glencadam 15-year-old Reserva de Madeira – Madeira cask finish and Glencadam 17-year-old Reserva PX – Pedro Ximenez Sherry Quarter cask finish – have been matured in exceptional American oak ex-bourbon casks – true to the distillery’s signature style.

    The Glencadam 15-year-old Reserva de Madeira (RRP £110) 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 inviting 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 (RRP £150) is finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry quarter casks from Andalucia, Spain, imparting distinct flavours which highlight its rich and fruity character. With only 4,188 individually numbered bottles available, the single malt promises a magnificent and richly layered finish with indulgent 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.

    Established in 1825 in the Royal Burgh of Brechin, Glencadam is one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries. Steeped in history, heritage and tradition, its single malt Scotch whisky is handcrafted in a process that’s remained unchanged for almost 200 years.

    Both expressions are now available from independent and specialist retailers.
