Scotch Tasting Notes

Nose: Spiced vanilla, warm and packed with delicate fruit aromas. Thick honey and gingerbread.

Palate: Rich caramel, a hint of salt and cracked black pepper. Very rich and velvety, this is an easy-drinking whisky. The flavours from by the sherry cask are there, but don't dominate.

Finish: A long, oaky finish, with some lingering cinnamon and sherried notes. 

About This Glentauchers Single Malt

This  Glentauchers single malt whisky, and her sister cask, are like Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap; born on the same day, but grew up in different surroundings. Although the Glentauchers sisters were made 2 years before that movie came out; which that makes us feel old! These two whiskies show what cask finishes can do t a whisky; both started their lives as ex-bourbon cask, with one having full-term maturation in ex-bourbon and this one is finished in an ex-sherry cask. A fascinating experiment, that has resulted in delightful scotch twins. Check out the sister cask whisky here.
