Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 1990 CA

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.18 points

  1. JFX scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    I would agree with other reviews calling this one a bit strange. Kinda all over the place. I quite like it, though!
    • Nose

      Sweet fruits at first, with tinned pears and applesauce with a bit of cinnamon. Then there's some beeswax and lemon zest (yes!). Coconut as well.
      With a little more time I get some creamy/oily notes - sunflower oil and a little buttery. Does that make some sort of margerine?

      Later: some pineapple! Can we get a Piña Colada going?

      After ~20 minutes: now I can find the cumin in the nose, too. A bit of a strange Piña Colada, I guess.

      Waxy with some apricots. Could have fooled me for a Clynelish here. Then a bit of pepper (white?) , with pine needles, rosemary and cumin as well.

      A bit drying with some woody bitterness. The age does come through here and there. Rather long with a nice waxy mouthfeel.

    Quite liking Glentauchers that have been appearing recently that I have tried. This one is no different.

  4. detachedblue scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet, decently aged, dry and herbal

    • Finish
      Minty, very long, woody, beef stocks

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Old and strange.
    • Nose
      Orchard fruits, traditional cider, white pepper.
    • Taste
      Waxy, coconut, very creamy.
    • Finish
      Lime cordial and lemon. A middle long aftertaste.
