Glentauchers 21, 1997-2019, Barrel 3833, 49.3% – Archives for CaskAid

CaskAid is a Belgium NPO that sells independently bottled whisky for charity. That sounds like a good way of raising money to me, and when combined with Archives, we should be in for some good stuff! Archives is the independent … Continue reading

Glentauchers 16, 2006-2022, Refill Bourbon Barrel 703712, 58.6% – Gordon & MacPhail for Whiskybase

The 15th anniversary of Whiskybase is a thing that should be celebrated. Not just from a commercial perspective, but also because I feel like Whiskybase has significantly changed the whisky landscape since its inception a decade and a half ago. … Continue reading

Glentauchers 2008-2021, Sherry cask, 52.3% – Michiel Wigman ‘They Inspired III’

Another second for Michiel Wigman, this time a Glentauchers. The previous one was a younger port cask, and this time it has a few more years, and a different maturation. Personally, I accept that there are tremendous Port casks available … Continue reading

Glentauchers 7, 2014-2021, Port Hogshead, 51.7% – Michiel Wigman

Now, this bit about the Port Hogshead is not on the internet, or on the label. However, the bottler himself told me in an email, so we’re going with that. A rather darkly colored Glentauchers, in line with quite a … Continue reading

Glentauchers 23, 1996-2019, Barrel 3969, 51.9% – Whiskydudes

It’s one of those rare bottlings with a million sub-labels. This one is from the ‘Playful Proverbs’ series. It’s labeled ‘Do Not Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth’. It’s bottled for the 10th anniversary of Het Whisky Forum, by … Continue reading

Glentauchers 18, 1996-2015, 48% – Claxton’s

18 year old Glentauchers should be pretty good right? Especially when bottled at 48%, which just happens to be my sort-of favorite spot for spirits to be bottled at. It’s also from a bourbon cask, so we should be getting … Continue reading

Glentauchers 20, 50.9% – Chorlton Whisky

Chorlton, honestly, sounds like the polite English version of barfing, but apart from that, I had never heard of this whisky brand, and until I found these tasting notes and looked up more information on the bottling, I had once … Continue reading

Two other Archives: Glentauchers and Glen Keith

The ‘non-Speyside’ whiskies from the recent Archives release are a Glentauchers 1996 and a Glen Keith 1992. Obviously both are from the Speyside region, but they aren’t marked as an undisclosed Speyside distillery. Both are a bit weird in regards … Continue reading

Glentauchers 16yo, 1997-2013, 54.3% – Gordon and Macphail for The Whisky Exchange

The  long titles to blog posts seem to be becoming a theme. Maybe I should just review some drams that were regular OBs instead of private casks by independent bottlers. Anyway, Glentauchers is a distillery that’s mostly used in Ballantines … Continue reading
