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.

 

BACKGROUND TO GLENTAUCHERS

This ex-sherry Glentauchers single malt whisky, and her sister an ex-bourbon 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.
