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.
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
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
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
