Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 1997 Arc

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.25 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    To my knowledge one of the first 'white label' Archives, and also the first Belgian Archives expression (for a charity foundation). Cross tasting with the Glentauchers 1997 Archives for Canada (with the dragonfly label). In my view this Tauchers is slightly more creamy and complex than its Canadian sistercask, but lacks the 'crispness' of the dragonfly. So a tie, 88 points.
    • Nose
      Fresh beeswaxed furniture intermingled with honey-lavender and candy-floss. Flowery notes of rhododendrons and freesias. Peel-zest. Hints of vanilla yoghurt as well.
    • Taste
      Fresh sandal wood with touch of cake mix and cocoa-butter. Lots of lemon grass too. Touch of pineapple, oranges and tangerines. Creme brulee at the background. It's all quite creamy with a mouthcoating texture.
    • Finish
      Medium long. White pepper. A little clove. Ginger. Apple-mint at the end.

    Simple profile on white fruits & a little peat, its decent This improves as you go as does the spice element.
