The Single Cask Glentauchers 1996 22 Years Old 700ml
Exceptional expression of Glentauchers this one was distilled in 1996, matured for 20 years in a bourbon hogshead & finished for 2 years in an ex sherry cask before being bottled at a natural cask strength of 54% in 2019.
Nose: Fruity and light - honeydew and lemongrass, quite floral. Some nutmeg amongst the cereal notes.
Palate: Stonefruits and subtle melon, with hints of chocolate and hazelnut. Fairly delicate, making it an easy-going whisky.
Finish: Long finish, with a lasting balance of fruit and nut flavours. A refined, relaxed dram.
