Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 2007 SCC

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.03 points

  1. Prof_Dr_John scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Just under 90 Euro for a 10 year old? Yes, considering what you get for it. The 12er Macallan, for example, stood at 90 euros a year ago. Total plague against this ... The Glentauchers offers everything your heart desires. A clear buy recommendation from me.
    • Nose
      Definitely more mature and complex than the 8th TWC. The 2 years more you notice clearly! The 8er is a bit "sprittiger" in the nose, the 10er clearly set and mature. Something spicier and chocolatier. The green banana and the lychee can be clearly perceived. But above all lies the deep-dark sherry with its dark aromas: pickled raisins, sweet dates, plum compote, dark chocolate, oranges, kräutrig-earthy notes.
    • Taste
      Bäääm! ... push the 55%! Krasser than the 58.4% at 8er! Hallelujah! Dark sherry, dark fruits, pickled raisins, sweet dates, plum compote, dark chocolate, oranges, herbal-earthy notes and a very well-integrated portion of seasoning from the Hogshead barrel. Jep - exactly my thing!
    • Finish
      Long lasting, pleasant mouthfeel, nothing is burning. Sweetness on the cheeks, dryness at the tip of the tongue. The sweetness is still very present, but is slowly accompanied by the spiciness and delicate bitterness of the wood. Very well matched, nothing fits here. Wonderful! For "only" 10 years a great bottling! B

    The thing is really different. You expect a full Sherrybreitseite and you get that in part. However, you also get this wonderful banana note in the nose and the slight liveliness on the tongue, which is quite unusual for such dark things.
    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, raisins, slightly wet tobacco, banana milk, wet and slightly moldy wood, licorice, now I got it: banana split - that's exactly how it smells, the sherry notes are there, but the banana note determines the foreground, with time, a dark nuttiness is added
    • Taste
      Strong onset, lots of chocolate, again with this banana note, directly creamy, slightly sparkling effervescent powder, oak flavoring without bitterness
    • Finish
      Again dominant chocolate and a very catchy spice, very light acidity, long-lasting heat

    Character: An intense sherry bottling that is fun. Of course enormously barrel dominated, but anything but monotonous and fortunately with its own characteristic: juicy dark Sherry meets forest floor, gunpowder and a lot of chocolate. The intense oak taste is remarkable in view of the relatively young age.
    Rating: It's not a complexity monster, and this intense sherry leaves no chance for a distillate character, but this bottling is definitely fun. For me a great uncomplicated and relatively young 1st Fill Sherry Hogshead enjoyment. A good blind purchase, though priced for a 10-year-old, of course, athletic. The big bottle was a lot of fun and enjoyable. I have good 91 points all around.
    • Nose
      Basic flavors: dried fruit, chocolate, oak, gunpowder, forest soil, citrus fruits
      Description: Immediately there are intense, dark sherry aromas, chocolate and oak in the nose. Somewhat wet forest soil and gunpowder resonates. Although I do not like sulfur aromas, I really like this mixture here. At no time is the interplay of the different flavors boring because everything harmoniously interacts at eye level. A few grated orange peel provide a pleasant freshness; the basic tone remains dark-dry-fruity and chocolaty.
    • Taste
      Basic flavors: sherry, fruits, dried fruits, chocolate, caramel, nut, oak
      Description: Even the first drop gives an enormous intensity. The taste is initially full of dark sherry: a lot of juicy plums, raisins, and prunes bring together with overripe dark cherries a lot of fruit on the tongue. This tasty mixture is covered in dark chocolate. For a moment I have to think about liquid caramel. This sweetness of fruit and chocolate is followed by a good portion of nuts and increasingly a surprisingly intense, beautiful oak takes over the command. The taste is extremely intense, warm and pleasantly tart-sweet. Here is really nothing overloaded or sticky. Incidentally, I like the drop with a teaspoon of water on 2cl most.
    • Finish
      Basic flavors: fruits, dried fruits, chocolate, nut, espresso, oak
      Description: The finish is surprisingly long. A nice juicy sweetish tart taste settles on the entire oral mucosa. Overripe plums, juicy dark cherries, dark grape nut chocolate and a remarkably beautiful oak sound long after. At the end, tasty almond and espresso notes develop. With a pleasant warming feeling in the epigastrium, this great First Fill Sherrymalt sounds like cask strength.

    A very fine bass strong Sherrymalt from the single cask. The relative youth is not a disadvantage, the Malt looks much more mature, set as he is. Young sherry barrel malts from the single barrel can be extremely good. That's one of the very good guys.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Oak espresso. Caramel. Dusty basement floor. A few blank cartridges. Something menthol fresh, sherry of course. The fruit is more like ripe apricot, well seasoned with wild herbs. Forest floor.
    • Taste
      92 92
      In the mouth, the malt is very strong, oak-accented, very light sulfur from the background, which immediately follows the sweetness, which is increasingly fruit gummy precipitates. Sherry, of course, all very strong, but not intrusive.
    • Finish
      90 90
      In the finish, the sweetness is over again, the oak comes back, is a bit bitter.

      With a few drops of water, the malt is a little more fruity in the nose, the Platzpatronenduft disappears, oak and herbs remain. On the palate, the gloss diver is pleasing, the Fruchtgummisüße increases, the oak remains discreetly in the background; also the finish becomes "friendlier", sweeter, rounder. You can not do it, you do not have to.

    • Nose
      92 92
      I have added water, 55% is too strong for me.

      first sweet, then a bit sour. With a dash of banana, green banana. Great, I did not have that yet.
      Then comes the sherry, intense, with rum-raisins, but always slightly acidic. Dates, coffee, a floral herbal note. Like a sweet sour herbal schnapps.
      The alcohol is noticeable, but well integrated, he does not sting.
      Great nose, there is always something to discover, Very complex for his age.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Sweet start. Full-bodied. Round.
      Immediately an intense semi-dry sherry, with a subtle smoky touch. Whether it comes from the barrel?
      Dark chocolate with about 60% cocoa, espresso, rum raisins, dates, nut. Some banana. Brown sugar. Then the oak flavor, which is very pleasant, and tingles on the tongue.
      Slightly salty.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium to long. It remains a pleasant oak bitterness with dark chocolate in the mouth. Nut notes come from the throat. He is getting drier.

      The intense sherry character is preserved in the mouth for a very long time.

      An excellent smoker. I've found out that the Glen Dipper harmonizes well with Sherry.

  7. Sleinn nam Ffoh scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The barrel was extremely active and created a wonderfully intense and tasty malt. PLV at 90 € is fully in order.
    • Nose
      Deep, dark sherry aromas, bittersweet, soy, rum, sweet raisins, beet compote, but also spicy and floral components, such as lavender and rose petals. Sometimes youthfulness with strong alcohol pressure.
    • Taste
      Intense firstfill character, soaked Rumtopffrüchte, dates, plums, sweet and full-bodied, spicy and slightly salty.
    • Finish
      Medium length, with fruit notes, sweetness, but also a pleasant oak bitterness. Slight dryness.
