Glentauchers

Glentauchers was founded in 1897 by two whisky blenders: James Buchanan and W P Lowrie.  Ownership of the distillery has passed between many companies over the years and  in 1965 the site was completely rebuilt and the number of stills  increased to six. The distillery is now owned by Pernod Ricard with it's production destined for blends such as Ballantine's and Teacher's. In fact, only 1% of Glentauchers finds its way into single malts, barring on release in 2000 of a 15 year old, then are all independently bottled.

Door number 9 delivers us a Boutique-y Glentauchers. Released around April 2016 it was amount the first bottlings released by Boutique-y that displayed an age-statement – a decision which the company has stuck with ever since.

A few months ago I dropped in on the excellent Whiskyshop in Dufftown – a veritable treasure trove of original, and independent bottlings. There’s lots to like about this small, but stocked to the rafters store – from the welcoming and friendly staff to the large selection of open bottles which provide visitors with a wealth of opportunities to ‘try before you buy’. I’m all for taking a punt on a bottling once in a while, but given the chance, I'd always recommend pre-sampling if its available – particularly when it comes to the idiosyncrasies of single cask whiskies. Sampling conducted, I walked away with a well-aged bottling of Glentauchers – perhaps I should have bought two?

Youthful Speyside in the form of a 9 year old Glentauchers that’s been matured in a refill ex-Bourbon barrel. One of 124 bottles. Juicy, Oak & Vanilla profile.

Glentauchers is very rarely seen in single malt form, with virtually all of their annual output being used for blended whisky. From a little Internet research I can see that there was an official distillery bottling of a 15 year old in 2000, but that's it - if you want to explore further you need to check in on your friendly neighbourhood independent bottler. Fortunately, in that regard, you're in luck as there's a few of them.
