Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 2008 SV

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.85 points

  1. clynelishfan scored this whisky 95 points Newbie

    Powerful sherrry monster!

  2. LittlePeat scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Amazing: This Glentauchers tastes exactly like WID 129952, Tomatin 2011 from the whisky broker.
    But: Although the Glentauchers is three years older, unlike Tomatin, it has an alcoholic sting in the nose and is biting on the tongue. At the same time, it has less of a distillery character and is "clean" in a bad sense. It's an interesting experience because the finish barrel obviously comes from the same winemaker. But: the diver should have been left in for at least another year. And the best thing would have been to use a more distinctive malt for this great barrel, not a Glentaucher. But a tomato or other highlander. If Speyside, then Inchgower. Or a grain !!!

    Edit: The finish here is just as long as with tomatin. A little less woody, with a slight additional hazelnut note, but otherwise exactly the same.
