    Not sure how you can rate this 69 - it's a flawless Glentauchers with beautiful tropical fruit notes.

    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.
    Rating: 90
    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.

  6. coldsun scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Jams, fresh fruits, stewed fruits, candies, paint. Taste is very bold and stable.
