These Glentauchers are presented as an ingredient, something that is needed to make a blend. 15 years old, not a bad thing anyway - but well, the blend is Ballantines, one of my first friends in the whisky odyssey that I have taken in recent years. It was the 17YO that I liked at the time - which excludes participation from this, since the 17YO contains whisky that is at least 17 years old.
This is a look at it. Disaster. Delightful, of course. Soft, mild, smooth, smooth is the word. I picture myself with a tumbler with ice and this scotch being a little bit James Bond - were it not for drinking that vodka martini and never leaving ice nor tumblers near my whisky. Vanilla ice cream, with an egg smooth soft finish, not too long, but very good. Slobber whisky is an insult to such a cultured Scotch - yes, capitalized indeed - but I can imagine you just make a bottle of a soldier one night without noticing it. That will certainly become noticeable the next day. Good stuff, this one. 87 points.
