Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 1996 Arc

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Out of all the recent glentauchers releases, this one might be my favourite. I like glentauchers quite a lot, it’s just a very classy elegant malt.

      A lot of people called this fruity, and I just can’t seem to pick out fruits really. The same with most glentauchers. To me it’s like a honeyed desert. Reminds me a bit of baklava, or Mille-feuille. Lots of honey, custardy, gentle spices, soft ginger, milk chocolate, blanched almond

      More of the same with the spices picking up a little, some cardamom joining In, Graham crumbs, honey, custard, great viscous mouthfeel, not overly complex, but very satisfying. No big flavour spikes or anything

      Spices at the fore, honey cake, ginger and cardamom make for a nice classy finish.

    Pretty strong, sweet and fruity whisky, very nice one. Very pleasant, also because of not too much alcohol. Enjoyable.

      Sweet, fruity, and spicy as well, pepper, vanilla, burnt nuts. Pretty full nose, not much alcohol. A little of tropical fruits too.

      Still some pepper, sweet and some bitterness now as well, grapefruit, vanilla and honey. Pretty long.
