  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 179 bottles from cask 14429The make from Glentauchers is not common – the last time it was bottled by its proprietor was in 2000 – and four independent bottlings from the same year as this one (1990) are fondly remembered. This cask is a U.S. hogshead, and the whisky’s colour is deep gold. The first impression on the nose is of dried fruits (including dried banana and glace orange peel), resolving into a light fruit cake complex, complete with toasted almonds and (later) icing sugar. Water freshens the nose, making its more estery and Speyside-like. Green apples, sherbet and fenel were all noted, and later a sweet fudge-like aroma (tacky meringue) and zabaglione. A creamy mouthfeel, with a sweet start, giving way to pleasant acidity; surprisingly warming (in the mouth and down the gullet) and peppery on the tongue, finishing on the long side of medium. Drink with hard cheese.
