Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 46%
A 2008 Glentauchers bottled in 2022 by Gordon & MacPhail for their splendid Distillery Labels series of licensed semi-official bottlings. This is the first 2008 vintage Glentauchers from G&M - and also the first G&M Glentauchers Distillery Labels bottling at the new higher strength of 46%.
The oft-overlooked Glentauchers made its debut for Gordon & MacPhail with a 1979 vintage in the same series (then known as the Licensed Bottlings) over thirty years ago in 1991 and has appeared dozens of times since. These Licensed bottlings were originally bottled at 40% until 2006-07, when the strength was upped to 43%. The younger vintage and age statement releases in the Licensed Bottlings range were officially renamed Distillery Labels around 2012.
