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 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

Glentauchers 30yo, 1981, 55.8%, La Maison du Whisky

A 30 year old single cask Glentauchers, who’d have thought! As Gal said on his review of this whisky yesterday, I haven’t had many Glentauchers. A few more than him, mostly because our club bottled a rather filthy one two … Continue reading
