Glentauchers 2005 (Sansibar)
Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Glentauchers
I believe I’ve only had one Glentauchers so far, a very young dram. This little known distillery became part of Pernod Ricard in 2005.
Glentauchers 8 yo 2005
(48,2%, Sansibar 2013, sherry cask, 244 btl.)
Nose: sweet plums and red apples, sugared cereals, maybe some muesli with raisins. Develops on mint and cinnamon, with hints of walnut liqueur. The fruity notes grow stronger and become slightly tropical (pineapple cubes and lime). Quite nice. Mouth: again sweet and fruity. Rounded, candied, not very complex but really pleasant. Apple pie and citrus. Light honey. Some toffee. Soft peppery notes as well. Finish: medium long, fruity with quite a lot of mocha, orange and a very light oaky touch.
An enjoyable little whisky. Well made, no fuss, easy drinking. Around € 70.
