About This Glentauchers Single Malt

This ex-bourbon Glentauchers single malt whisky, and her sister an ex-sherry Glentauchers, 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 long-term maturation does in Sherry and Bourbon casks. And, trust us, in this case, it’s done different and wonderful things to these delightful scotch twins.  Check out the sister cask here.
