Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 1998 GM

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.32 points

  1. yellowcake scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    This is a very fine Whisky for malt heads who like Sherry blaster. I bought this Whisky in the shop because the colour triggered the "buy it reflex".
    • Nose
      Sherry, caramel and toffee. After a while with a drop of water there are nuances of dark fruits, dried fruits like figs and apricots. Imagine fruits like strawberries conserved in rum.
    • Taste
      Sweet and creamy. Without water, the alcohol is very active but not unpleasant. The Sherry does its work with the bitterness and is dominant, the oak is very present and of course the vanilla. Is there coffee in the taste? Or bitter chocolate?
    • Finish
      Long and intense with the Sherry at the beginning and the oak afterwards. The longest stays the vanilla and the chocolate.

  4. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [August, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 85 Euro in August, 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 82,5.  My notes state "nothing remarkable about this except too pricey"...

  5. Goethe scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice Glentauchers by GM CS. A bit to spicy and quite one dimensional although you get a nice chocolate orange mix.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Sherry, cane sugar, candied red fruits, caramel, vanilla.
    • Taste
      Sherry, spices, oranges, some apples.
    • Finish
      Medium. Sherry, oranges, some chocolate.

  6. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: A butterscotch-toffee number with some oyster sauce-char.
    T: Same as the nose, thereabouts. Continues on caramel-butterscotch char.
    F: More of the same.
    C: Very Strathclyde-esque. Tasty yet dominant, heavy-toffee charred malt. Blog

    Scores a C+
