This Glentauchers is part of the 24 x 20cl bottles that make up the Carn Mor Vintage Collection. Distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2009, at 3 years old whisky doesn’t come younger than this! It’s from a limited edition of 921, Cask No: 9. Non-chill filtered,  no added colour and 46%.

76/100 on Whiskybase is a good-to-average rating. One of the votes, Willie JJ, scores it 81/100 and leaves the following tasting notes:

Nose: Summer fruit pie and custard, gooseberries, pot ale and bran. Very youthful but clearly very well made spirit.
Taste: Custard tart and cream, tinned peaches, icing sugar. Sweet and quite delicious.
Finish: Long, creamy and sweet with the custard theme continuing.
Comments: An astonishing 3 year old. A really good example of the quality of this obscure distillery.
