Posted: February 16, 2012 in Glentauchers, Scotch Whisky A-G

Douglas McGibbon Provenance Glentauchers 2007 (9 year old) 46%

Sherry Butt/ Code: PRV1178/ DL11086

A nose of flambéed banana with a sherry syrup and toffee topping! Hints of barley and spicy, dried fruit follow along with a late balsamic note.

The palate is very balsamic and malty with sweet toffee and dried fruit. A little winey red fruit comes through along with hints of almond and walnut. Long and very creamy with lingering almond essence and toffee coated apple and banana. Interesting!

A fresh and gristy nose with a touch of burnt caramel, earth and vanilla. The palate is soft and milky. Quite full and slightly oily with carameled barley. Reasaonable length with some soft, sweet spice and citrus on the finish.
