Bartles Whisky Glentauchers Tasting Notes

Posted: June 11, 2017 in Glentauchers, Uncategorized

Highland Laird Glentauchers 1996 (18 year old) 52.2%

Bourbon/ Dist: 1996 Btl: 2014/ Tasted: Oct 2014

The aromas are quite gristy and fresh with taught honey, grass and robust herbal barley. Lovely intensity with a touch of gritty coffee’d tannins, spice an creamy oak with time.

The palate is dense and honeyed with sweet-ish barley and coffee’d tannins. More mature than the nose suggests and maltier too! Lovely herbal note on the middle and a long finish with the creamy oak coming through with a touch of sweet tangerine. 

Highland Laird Glentauchers 1996 (20 year old) 58%

Bourbon Barrel 7301/ Dist: 1996 Btl: 2017/ Tasted: Mar 2017

Crisp, fresh and very mineral aromas with an almost grainy bite. Barley, citrus and grass follows with a touch of honey and creamy vanilla oak. Pleasantly fragrant and aromatic.

The palate is fuller with more oak character and more barley. It’s still quite mineral and citric with subtle honey and building, crisp, grainy spice. Long, white fruit and mineral finish with lingering oak and honey.
