It has the very typical Glentauchers wood honey note as well in the nose as in the taste. The alcohol doesn´t sting, the 16 years show best in the roundness. Dry and tasty, not too fruity in the mouth. The wood dominates the aftertaste in an elegant and pleasant way. The honey note makes itself felt all the way down the throat. It is exactly that vibrant honey tone that I find very typical for Glentauchers, both in sherry and bourbon bottlings. I did not try to reduce with water, but it most likely might tickle out some more or other taste notes.
