    This Glentauchers is less tropical than an other similar bourbon cask matured Glentauchers I enjoyed from this vintage. The watermelons and minty notes are impressive though.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Grassy and floral at first, with mint leaves, green apple and melon coming through too. Then finally some tropical fruits: pinapple and papaya.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Fresh again at first with mint and melon. A a bit mineral and spicy (ginger, pepper) on the background, before subtle tropical fruits and honey appear.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Juicy and fruity finish, with watermelon again. The sweet fruits and vanilla are countered by peppermint, ginger and mineral water. Very good!

  8. Simon Stood scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Fresh, at the same time rich in all the components of the malt. 89, but maybe 90
    • Nose
      Nose - cinnamon roll, lemonade. Straight childhood dream)
    • Taste
      Round, buttery, duchess, candy, vanilla.
    • Finish
      Finish - freshness of mint, tingling of soda, a little peppercorn. Great

    Another good 1997 Glentauchers, not as stellar as some of the others as the oak really is starting to dominate the proceedings on the palate. Still, well worth seeking out.

  12. Jackson05 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I think Tauchers is a bit of a sleeper, so I’m excited for this one.

    This is another lovely one! But as the other reviewer said, I don’t think it’s necessarily better than others from this vintage. It did have a price hike that isn’t justified against the other Glentauchers in the same vintage/age.

    Buttery even soft waxes. Apple, malty, thick and mouthcoating. Honeydew and cantaloupe. I like this style but I’d probably go for a cheaper version. Why am I a fan of Glentauchers? Value! I believe in the big blend workhorses, but I expect a discount as a single cask. I don’t want to pay a premium a la Clynelish or Ben Nevis. This one is great, but doesn’t justify the premium for a Glentauchers.

  13. Casketje scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I don't really get all the 90+ scores. Sure it's a nice, elegant, mature, dusty Glentauchers that tastes older than its age, but it's not different from any of the other 1997 Glentauchers that have been bottled by Signatory (except for the hike in price).
