Sweet & Sour

This Glentauchers (say 'glen-tock-ers') was bottled by the German Indie Whisky-Fässle and released in 2014. After reading these notes, you will agree that it was a good thing that this single bourbon barrel at cask strength did not disappear in Ballantine's, Chivas Regal or Teacher's Highland Cream.

The nose is very similar to the Glentauchers 1996 from Highland Laird that I just tried. But it is a tad sweeter and rounder. Less corn flakes, more fruit. Think peach, apricot, mango and banana. Sweet and sour apples. Vanilla, mint and a hint of wild flowers. Becomes creamier if you leave it to breathe.

Nicely creamy on the palate too. Fruity and sweet with a herbal twist. Green garden herbs support all the white and yellow fruit from the nose. Nice spiciness too. Think pepper, ginger, liquorice and camphor. Good balance by the way;

On the medium long finish the spices fade in favor of banana and vanilla.

Summer dram with a fine nose, fine palate and fine finish. What’s not to like?

Quote Whiskyfun.com - November 28, 2016

Glentauchers 18 yo 1996/2014 (51.9%, Whisky-Fässle, bourbon) Four stars Colour: gold. Nose: much fruitier, with more bubblegum, and less acidic notes. So gentler and rounder, and less spectacular than the Chapter 7. With water: a little more earth, mushrooms, moss… Nothing abnormal after reduction. Mouth (neat): typical easy fruity and citrusy Glentauchers again. Many oranges, some grapefruit, a little barley sugar, and half a marshmallow. With water: same. Bonbons aplenty. Finish: medium, very fruity. Haribo’s jelly babies – yeah or crocodiles, as you like. Comments: easy and very good, as expected. SGP:651 - 85 points.

Color
Old gold
Nose
Lemon, apple, vanilla, peach, banana. A little grass or even cucumber. With water more apple and a bit less cream.

Taste

Vanilla, green apple. Slightly floral and again that little 'green' touch. A little caramel. A little of a lot in fact, nothing is really dominant.

Finish

Vanilla, pear and banana.
