BACKGROUND TO GLENTAUCHERS
This ex-sherry Glentauchers 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.
