A youthful Glentauchers, distilled in 2005 and bottled in 2013 with an outturn of 244 bottles. This release is sourced from the German independent bottlers, "Sansibar".

Tasting note: Deep gold. Initial whiffs are slightly alcoholic, acidic. Second pass remains off-key and atypical suggesting scents of curry leaf, turmeric and hints of dried coconut. Ten minutes draws out a malty / fruit-cake edge with hints of cedar wood. Raisin toast too? Soft, semi-sweet entry is followed by attractive flavours of fruit mince pie, clove and cinnamon with the spices surging towards the finish. More fruit bread in the aftertaste? Odd yet interesting. Non chill filtered. 48.2% Alc./Vol.
