WHISKY 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.
BACKGROUND TO GLENTAUCHERS
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 to a whisky; both started their lives as ex bourbon cask, with one having full term maturation in ex bourbon and this one being finished in an ex sherry cask. A fascinating experiment, that has resulted in delightful scotch twins. Check out the sister cask here.
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Packaging: All our bottles are shipped in a specialist anti-shock 'air tubes'. These create a sleeve of air around the bottle to keep it safe and protected while in the post. The air tubes are then places in discreet, plain, cardboard outer boxes.
