  1. ThS did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting notes from Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
    Nose

    Apple blossom, white peach, barley sugar and crunchy icing. Pear drops notes grow, accompanied by more peachy notes. Candied flavours sit underneath: tins of travel sweets and glacier fruits.
    Palate

    Creamy in texture and flavour, with soft vanilla and whipped cream followed by fresh but slightly underripe plums and hot cinnamon spice. The heat dies away and mineral notes peek out from behind, with fruit boiled sweets, candied lemons and wine gums.
    Finish

    Floral notes appear and then disappear, replaced by spun sugar. Peach and pear develop, with touches of dark, oaky spice.

    At one time all of Glentauchers spirit was dunnage warehouse matured, though currently producing at 4.1mlpa, this may have changed.

    N: Much heavier than the previous three, this is a really husky>resinous oily malt with fruity Glacier sweets,... and “crunchy icing”, someone calls out. 

    T: Well aged, nicely balanced and full bodied delivery. Much like the Balblair, with balls - waxy=malty, salty balls!

    F: Rory leads with ”Cola bottles”. I fail to write any more notes. I must have be enjoying this one.

    C: Thoroughly decent standard session whisky.

    Scores a B

  9. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I liked a certain balance of lightness, pressure and pepper, 22
    Total 89-90, closer to 90 as for me
    • Nose
      peaches, apricots, spices, a certain creaminess, everything is quite easy and airy, but it is quite energetic 22-23
    • Taste
      the same fruits and a little gooseberries, 22
    • Finish
      Persistent peach-oak-peppery, several waves, 22-23
