Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 2004 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.25 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [August, 2018] Glentauchers is one of the best kept secrets in the whisky world. It constantly produces great drams that are favoured by many blenders and a lot of its single malt releases by independent bottlers are clearly above average, some are truly exceptional (e.g., see WB ids 105104 or 87371). This is true both for old drams as well as for younger ones like this release...

    ...that is another fine example of an above-average 'tauchers at a reasonable price point. A distillate-driven dram without excessive wood influence (like with so many other "modern" whiskies) that simply offers what whisky is made for: quaffability...
    • Nose
      88 88
      The colour is pale gold and the nose offers a fresh and delicate profile of different fruits, malted barley, honeys and spices within an appropriate wooden setting. It is nicely balanced and without any off-note - I like it!
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is creamy on a lot of different flavours like barley sugars, fruits, honeys and spices in a balanced mix. After some chewing some fine chocolatey notes pop up. No flaw that I can find. Water is not needed as it just flattens the dram.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The whisky arrives warming and coating on the palate with no distracting moments. The finish is of a medium length and more spicy than the taste what is a good counterpart to the sweet barley sugars and honeys. No bitter of drying moment at all

    Like Balblair, 'Glentauchers was also amongst those distilleries who utilised the emerging rail network around Scotland, building its own specific railway sidings into the distillery.
    Today, bottlings of this lighter style Speysider are very difficult to find and Gordon & MacPhail are one of the only companies to have consistently bottled this highly underrated malt since the 1990s.’ G&M

    N: Confectionary, toffee, nuts and caramel on the nose.
    T&F: True to form throughout.
    C: G&M continue to present cracking stocks of Glentauchers year on year.

    Bottler's tasting notes:
    Colour: Lightest gold.
    Aroma: Dry meadow grasses mix with beeswax polish aromas. Sweetness evolves with time: white chocolate and vanilla pod mingles with fresh pear and green apple.
    Taste: A tropical fruit celebration; melon, kiwi, ripe nectarine, and grapefruit flavours each take a turn in the limelight. Warming pepper develops, opening into a drying cacao powder edge.
    Finish: Medium in length; toasted oak comes to the fore.
