Whisky Reviews for Glentauchers 1996 Arc

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.78 points

  1. ducksingel scored this whisky 90 points Editor

    A great example of the characteristic Speyside fruitiness. With this one you get an abundance of cherries. In the background there is this typical for Glentauchers hint of tea. Despite of the almost 54% ABV the taste is light. All in all this is a very good Speyside. A dram for the connoisseur.

    • Nose
      Green apple, almond, vanilla, liquorice and citrus. 
    • Taste
      Almond, apple, vanilla, malt, salty liquorice, honey and orange. Undiluted it's also quite spicy. With water there's some vanilla cake.
    • Finish
      More liquorice. Remarkably salty. Apple, malt, vanilla, tangerine, cake, honey and aniseed.

  9. Berrysaki scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Very gentle nose. A bit of lemon, liquorice, green apples, green herbs. Very well balanced!
    • Taste
      Tingles on the tongue but at the same time it's quite creamy. Lemon, green apples, kind of salty. A hint of vanilla in the background. 
    • Finish
      Quite a long finish. After the alcohol , apple peel and barley stay in the mouth for a long time.

  10. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The nose is light and airy, while the palate packs some more punch. It is delicate, and then again it isn't. Seems easygoing at first, but then provides more of a challenge a little later on. Yeah, I like it.
    • Nose
      Light, fruity and summery with hints of aniseed and licorice. Though the nose consists mainly of white grapes, a gentle aroma of lemons and soft notes of pears and green apple peel. There's a very light touch of vanilla.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. A pinch of white pepper with ginger. There's lemon zest, subtle apple and some vanilla.
    • Finish
      Lingering on bitter lemon and stewed apples.
