The Single Cask Glentauchers 2002 14 Years Old (45.8% abv)
Nose: Exuberent and youthful. A mix of light florals and clean minerals. Perfumed saddle soap and firm maltiness. Palate: Presents some clean earth and sour herbals - dill? Also rather green and wet ferns after a morning shower. Finish: Mossy and wet, clean earth and quite fresh.
