Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 1997 ElD
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.48 points
- Not sure how you can rate this 69 - it's a flawless Glentauchers with beautiful tropical fruit notes.
- Quick Notes:
Pleasantly dry with a lot of vanilla, light wood and tart citrus notes.
Lots of chocolate, light wood.
Full, juicy fruits, then tart citrus notes and dry wood.
- Aroma: initially closed, light mash tones that fortunately quickly disappeared, gradually opening up - dry grain, malt, lemon and honey, tropical fruits, exotic juice, vanilla bun, abundantly sprinkled with powdered sugar, meringues, dry herbs, light ginger.
Taste: bright, caramel-sweet, vanilla, milk chocolate, grains of ground coffee, overripe pear, ripe melon, banana, all this is a little sprinkled with red pepper, class!
Finish: medium length, honey diluted with water, caramel, cocoa with milk, again the same ripe honey pear, a little spices and bitter zest.
Bottom line: a great sweet, honey-fruit Speyside!
For a 21-year-old, the influence of oak is almost not noticeable, the barrel simply famously cut these fruit spirits. Thin and developing in a glass of whisky, the bottler did very well, his taste was especially remembered.
- Jams, fresh fruits, stewed fruits, candies, paint. Taste is very bold and stable.
