Glentauchers 10yo #423

Splendid Speyside single malt from the glorious Glentauchers Distillery! This was distilled in 2011 and treated to a decade long rest in a single sherry cask, with a 21 month finishing period in an ex-Glenallachie sherry cask. In 2021, the whisky was bottled up at cask strength by A.D. Rattray for its indie Cask Collection, with a total of 673 bottles produced. Lovely stuff, if you like your Speysides good and sherried, this is a real treat!

Reviews for Glentauchers 10 Year Old 2011 (cask 423) - Cask Collection (A.D. Rattray)
Where's the sherry?
Rarely do I find myself disagreeing with the descriptions or tasting notes from MoM but on this occasion I find myself doing so. This Glentauchers was matured first in a sherry butt and then in an ex-Glenallachie sherry cask for 21 months and is described as a Speyside that's "good and sherried". All I can say is that these casks must have been very tired because they've added very little sherry influence into this spirit. The colour is very pale, the nose, no sherry at all and the taste is more like a dram from a bourbon hogshead. I'm not saying it's not a very pleasant whisky - it's just not what I thought I was buying from the description. I have a Carn Mor bottling of Glentauchers from a sherry cask which is far more like the real thing. This Rattray version just can't compare.
