I had this one 2nd in the night, early enough to make an informed decision and it ended up being my favourite of the evening. I’m a fan of Glentauchers and many of the casks from 1997 have been really great.
Glentauchers is a drinkers whisky. You’re not buying this to flip or get rich in 10 years. It doesn’t come with the price tag of a trendy big name distillery either. A great little value haven, in my opinion.
Nice honey and spice notes, distillate driven. Not overly complex nose, but again I didn’t have the time with it in a festival setting.
Great mouthfeel. Waxy, creamed honey, tropical fruits and melon. Perhaps even a little scotch mint. Really delicious.
Nice finish. creamed honey, mouthcoating and elegant, without flaws. Honeysuckle flowers.
