Cadenhead’s Autumn 2022 Authentic Release


Glenrothes-Glenlivet 25yo 53.1%

PX Sherry Hogshead since September 2020

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The panel are delighted to begin with this complex Speyside bottling from Rothes. This distillery has a complicated history, facing financial challenges early on before blossoming into the distillery we know today. Beautifully sweet, with fruit and chocolate notes immediately apparent. The finish of this dram is nutty, the panel recorded notes of almonds and cashews.





Royal Brackla 15yo 57.0%

Bourbon Barrel

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

There are three dominant character traits of this whisky, produced on the Cawdor estate (near Nairn); it’s caramel chocolate sweetness, the refined nuttiness and the vibrant fruit elements. All are evident throughout the whisky although perhaps you will want to have several sips to help you isolate each note.







Blair Athol 13yo 58.0%

Oloroso Sherry Hogshead since March 2022

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A Highland whisky known for developing well in ex-sherry casks and for displaying a nutty, slightly fruity nature. The panel enjoyed this dram from start to finish, with the raisins and cinnamon on the nose, nutmeg and sticky toffee pudding on the palate along with dates and mint humbugs on the finish, this bottling provides a smooth and likeable dramming experience.






Glen Garioch 10yo 57.9%

Fino Sherry Hogshead since October 2020

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glen Garioch operates with a relatively modern set-up contained within its old halls (some of the buildings date back to at least 1797 but may be even older). Fast forward to today, we have this 10yo bottling that displays notes of chocolate, macadamia nuts and fresh ginger alongside the hints of citrus fruits that run through the dram.
