Cadenhead’s Tasting Panel

The Cadenhead’s Tasting Panel have gathered together again to taste the latest releases and provide their personal feedback. Check out their thoughts below.


Blair Athol 12yo – This Highland dram has strong fruity elements from the very beginning. Its juicy nature provides a pleasing vibrancy throughout. Notes of gooseberries, white grapes and apples maintain a freshness until the finish fades.

Ord 11yo  –  Matured in a Cognac hogshead, this intriguing whisky impressed the panel and we think you will enjoy it too. Thick and chewy, there is a lemon flavoured sweetness on the palate that transforms into caramel chocolate in the finish.

Glenrothes 20yo – An easy to drink, sweet dram full of dessert notes like banoffee pie, butterscotch ice cream and Battenberg cake. The panel thinks that this will prove popular with a wide range of dram drinkers, regardless of how seasoned a whisky lover they are.

Ardmore 10yo  – Matured in a Pinot Noir cask and has meaty notes on the nose to entice you. As you drink you will experience fruity notes, in fact our panel pinpointed a number of berries that they could identify in the taste and finish, as well as a slight saltiness before the peat smoke grows. An intricate and complex dram that will have you returning for more.

Caol Ila 9yo – This Islay whisky provides the smoky character you want and expect. It is present throughout the dram but melds seamlessly with other elements, such as sweetness in the nose and finish and with the coastal notes you may also pick up. We enjoyed tasting this one tremendously and we know you will too.

Miltonduff 13yo – Zesty citrus notes are present throughout, as you would anticipate given its maturation in a Jamaican rum cask. The significant rum influence made this was a real favourite with the team. A dynamic dram that has a biscuity undertone to complete each mouthful.

Springbank 10yo – The typical salty, coastal notes of a Campbeltown dram are present immediately in the nose. The panel also enjoyed the slightly spicy aspects of this dram as well as the light fruity notes. The peat in the finish shows that this dram is well balanced and inviting.

Heaven Hill 12yo – A light and floral bourbon with fruity notes that add a pleasant sweetness to every mouthful. Its smoothness makes it approachable to all drinkers, regardless of experience and the panel particularly liked the notes of pear poached in wine on the finish.
