This Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled at the Glentauchers Distillery in Speyside. We loved the vanilla oakiness on the nose, and the sweetness that gives off memories of penny sweets come through too with a juicy green apple note and a smooth, fruity and creamy palate with a slightly spicy finish.

Glentauchers, founded in 1897 and not open to the public, is a rarely talked about distillery in the Speyside region of Scotland. The distillery was closed between 1985 and 1992 as it became a victim of the whisky slump, but is now producing whisky year-round.
