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.

have a dram good time! My Collection

Color
Pale straw
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.

Color
Pale straw
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.

Color
Pale straw
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.

Comments

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.
