    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.

    [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"...

    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.

    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
