  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The sherry influences are clearly in the foreground, dominating the whisky. It's delicious, but it lacks unique selling points. This is also known from other sherry cask maturations. If you like sherry cask whiskys, you won't go wrong here.

  3. Boletus did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Fortunately, the wooden club through the small octave barrels that I feared is absent, as is an exaggerated sherry influence that covers everything. Instead, the clean and beautiful brand of ''Glentauchers'' is staged quite well. Not earth-shattering, but a delicious Süffelmalt.
    • Nose
      Accompanied by a cooling alcoholic breeze, it rises quite fruity in the nose, sultanas and cocktail cherries next to crumbly "Golden Delicious" apples, a hint of peach and apricot, the oak comes across as surprisingly restrained, some mint, vanilla, a little cocoa, the clean ones playful barley aromas make the malt appear relatively youthful, through contact with air the wood profile becomes more complex and spicy with a tiny pinch of cinnamon, a hint of unripe hazelnuts and also a hint of coconut come through
    • Taste
      The lively distillate determines the start with fine barley, a fruit gum mix of sour apple rings and peaches from "Haribo" experiences a sweet increase with a little rolling around in the mouth with sultanas and acacia honey, becoming malty, a light nuttiness of green hazelnuts in the background, peppermint has a slightly cooling effect, the oak behaves rather passively, a little vanilla and coconut as well as a subtle spicy wood with a very slight bitterness indicate its presence
    • Finish
      Tends to be medium long, relatively simply knitted, but tasty, ultimately the aromas of the taste fade to a brief alcoholic glow without any significant surprise, malty barley, sultanas, minimal mint, dry oak sends a final greeting with hazelnuts and a slightly roasted wood spice, Cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, ending in an aftertaste of crumbly apples with a now clearer note of coconut
