Dimensions is the recently introduced range from Duncan Taylor & Co. featuring single malt and single grain whiskies aged from 6 to 39 years.
Each whisky included in the range comes from single cask and is usually bottled in its natural form. Here we have young, 6 years old expression of Glentauchers, a perfect example of quality whisky despite its relatively young age. The whisky comes from traditional hogshead (no. 900658) filled in July 2008 and was bottled at natural strength of 54.8% abv in January 2015 with an outrun of 319 bottles. Glentauchers is one of the main components of Ballantine’s blends and is pretty seldom offered by Independent Bottlers.
