LIMITED QUANTITIES! The vast majority of Glentaucher's malt goes into blends, mostly Ballantine's and Teacher's. Less than 1% is kept back for releaseas a single malt. An official bottling of 12 year-old was available from the 1980s, but was replaced by a 15yo in 2000 while the distillery still belonged to Allied. There have been occasional independent bottlings from Gordon & MacPhail and Douglas Laing. A single malt from Speyside's Glentauchers, distilled in 2004 and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of their Distillery Labels series. Dry meadow grasses mix with beeswax polish aromas. Sweetness evolves with time: white chocolate and vanilla pod mingles with fresh pear and green apple. A tropical fruit celebration; melon, kiwi, ripe nectarine, and grapefruit flavours each take a turn in the limelight. Warming pepper develops, opening into a drying cacao powder edge. Medium finish, toasted oak comes to the fore.
