Bottler: Wm Cadenhead
Bottled: March 2019
From the extensive collection of W.M. Cadenhead ‘Small Batch’ independent bottlings comes this 11-year-old single malt distilled by Glentauchers in Speyside. The distillery is owned by Pernod Ricard and there are very few bottlings of Glentauchers Single Malt Whisky or independent expressions as almost their production is used for blended whisky.
The whisky was laid to rest for 11 years in in a trio of bourbon hogsheads and then bottled at cask strength in 2019 with an output of 840 bottles world-wide. As with all Cadenhead expressions, the whisky is non-chill filtered with no added colouring.
