    WOOO! This dram surprises me.

    Strawberry & Wood flavours made me remember it; Some fresh, dry or vanilla strawberry, beautiful white grape, ginger, with some wood-like staying in a Chinese or Japanese temple.

    Wipe some on the hand and heat it a little bit, it will come out some Incense and fruits like perfume notes, what a beautiful & sweet lady, Love it!

  2. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very well matured malt with eternal finish
    • Nose
      Extremely sweet, lots of vanilla, at the beginning a clear adhesive note, behind it are herbs, grapes, honeydew melons, sugared strawberries, vanilla pod, discreetly resinous
    • Taste
      Sweet with vanilla and strawberry milk, creamy, getting drier, oak spice, behind getting stronger, at the second sip here comes the glue note
    • Finish
      Lots of warmth, more vanilla, everlasting finish with a lot of oak

    [March, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 125 Euro in January, 2016.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a delicate and nicely balanced dram that is very quaffable...

    A good swimmer. The nose in particular opens up again after a little water and then plays for me in a league with the taste.
    Full length sweet, vanilla and light fruits. In the finish, the oak wort briefly comes to the fore and shows the power of the malt and then releases it to the vanilla.

    The Small Batch bottling series from Cadenheads brings a lot of bottles onto the market and so it is with a lot, not always everything is always good.
    This Glentauchers is one of the "good guys" for me, I like it a lot!
    • Nose
      89 89
      Intense and oily on the nose.
      Fruit predominates with a slight spiciness that shouldn't come from alcohol.
    • Taste
      90 90
      The aromas become clearer in the mouth.
      Wax, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, light perfume note
    • Finish
      87 87
      Very long and intense, in the end light detergent

    N- Superbly layered, lemon, fat malt, minted chocolate with aged mead soaked wood. Well depth with mellow but solid wood nuance that delivering the floral honey, oily nutty and oatmeal. Evolving well to baked ginger cookies, caramelized almonds and stone fruits, some lychee whispering. Glory and full of sunshine. (96/24)

    P- Zesty spicy sweetness gives room to others to shines, subtle chocolate, honey and mango with bitter peel at the back. The present of profound thick sweet phenol amplifying the quality of this beauty. (93/23)

    F- Medium-long, return of airy smoked mead, waxy with hint of wood extract that works magic in this bottling. Frizzy dry, rounded and simply stunning. (93/23)

    Body/Balance- 95/24

    Weighted rate- 94pt
