Nosing: Dried FruitTropical Fruit
Lots of dried tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango. Definitely more subdued than the 15 year old version.

Taste: BarleySweetLemon Peel
Medium sweet arrival. Barley sugar, buiscuits and citrus peel. Doesn't really develop much over time.

Finish:
Oaky , more barley cereal.

Comment:
Compared to the other Glencadam releases I've had this one just seems a bit... meh. It doesn't have the maturity of the 21, or the vibrancy of the 15. It sort of sits in this weird place where all you really get is a lot of grain flavours, and not much action. It isn't bad by any measure. It just doesn't really deliver the goods.
