Glencadam expands malt range

19 July, 2010

Glencadam distillery has expanded its single malt range with three new editions.

Its 12-year-old malt (rrp £39.99) has been finished in port wood, giving it a “coppery pale rosé colour and handsome port and whisky balance on the palate”, according to brand development director Duncan Baldwin.

A 14-year-old version (rrp £42.99) has been finished in oloroso sherry wood.

There is also a 21-year-old edition (rrp £55.99).

“We believe we offer across these three new product releases a taste to meet the most discerning of whisky lovers preferences,” Baldwin added.

The new whiskies are available now in limited quantities.

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
