In order to celebrate the Glencadam Distillery reopening 13 years ago, Angus Dundee Distillers has launched a limited edition Glencadam 13-year-old single malt Scotch whisky: “the reawakening” .
The famous Glencadam distillery in Scotland’s Highlands region was originally established back in 1825. In 2000, the Glencadam distillery was shut down for three years, and was acquired and reopened in the autumn of 2003 by Angus Dundee Distillers.
The Glencadam 13-Year-Old “The Re-Awakening,” according to those behind it, was distilled back in 2003 and bottled recently at 46% ABV. It is both non-chill filtered and of natural color. It is packaged in a “shimmering” gold color canister that’s said to complement the look and feel of the distillery’s portfolio.
6,000 individually numbered bottles are being made available globally, with around half of those coming to the US for around $65 each. You’ll find some limited, official tasting notes at the end of this story for your consideration.
“We are fortunate enough to be able to produce excellent malt at Glencadam and we are also blessed by being able to retain age statements on the vast majority of our releases,” said Duncan Baldwin, Glencadam Brand Development Director, in a prepared statement. “This rare, 13 year-old limited edition aged from the re-start of distillation commemorates The ‘Re-Awakening’ of Glencadam Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.”
- Nose: Floral and malty with summer fruits, gentle sweetness and subtle vanilla.
- Palate: Refined for its age with ripe fruit notes accompanied by smooth vanilla sweetness.
