GLENTAUCHERS 2005 G&M 43%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 57119
Distillé en 2005, ce Glentauchers est embouteillé par Gordon & MacPhail dans la célèbre gamme Distillery Labels. Ce single malt mêle agréablement les notes fruitées (poire, pomme et kiwi) et herbacées. D'une belle complexité. La gamme Distillery Labels témoigne des relations toutes particulières qu'entretient Gordon & MacPhail avec une poignée de distilleries depuis plus d'un siècle. Se voyant confier année après année des new make spirits (les distillats), Gordon & Macphail a développé son art pour la maturation du whisky et met en valeur chaque expression sous une étiquette unique. Un honneur pour ces distilleries, aujourd'hui devenues emblématiques, qui n'embouteillaient pas, ou peu, leur single malt sous leur propre marque.
Fruité, herbacé. Poire, pomme, poivre blanc, kiwi.

- The brand
Founded in 1898, at the dawn of the biggest crisis to hit the whisky industry in the 19th century, Glentauchers spent its entire life overshadowed by production for blended scotch, with the majority of its malt being used for the Buchanan blend and, later, Black & White. After halting production during the two world wars, it finally closed its doors for good in 1985. In 1989 it was bought by the Allied Domecq group (Ballantine’s) before being taken over by the Pernod Ricard group in 2005. Though an official bottling did appear on the market in the 90s, bottlings of its single malts are seldom found. The rare versions that are available are released by independent bottlers such as Signatory Vintage and Gordon & Macphail.
This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.
The lineThe Distillery Labels range reflects the special relationship Gordon & MacPhail has had with a handful of distilleries for over a century. Year after year, Gordon & Macphail is entrusted with new make spirits (the distillates), and has developed its art of maturing whisky, highlighting each expression under a unique label. An honour for these distilleries, which have become emblematic today, who used to bottle little or no single malt under their own brand name.
