Product Description

A single cask offering from one of Speyside's hidden gems, Glentauchers released by independent bottler Claxton's.

Aged for 20 years in an Ex-Bourbon Barrel and distilled on 4th December 1996.

Natural colour and non chill filtered and yielded just 154 bottles.

Nose: Ripe pear, baked apples with caramelised demorera sugar, freshly baked biscuits, vanilla custard, cream soda pop, frosties breakfast cereal.

Palate: Lime marmalade, vanilla toast, marshmallow, sugared almonds, candyfloss, white grapefruit, pear frangipane, aromatic peach.

Finish: Buttery popcorn, lime bon bons, more ripe pear and aromatic orchard fruit, fizzy oak spice, dusting of vanilla icing sugar on white grapefruit.

A faultless classic Ex-Bourbon cask aged Speysider that pleases with every sip and much like drinking liquid sunshine all be it with a bit more fruit and less heat despite its 51.9% ABV!
