A rare, sweet taste of a historic Speyside Single Malt.

Five Lions is an independent bottler of Scottish Whisky based in Germany. Like many of the other independents they specialize in procuring odd lots and even single barrels of product from major manufacturers and issuing limited releases that retain the character and individuality of the spirit and barrel. These limited releases change from year to year — once each is gone, that’s it. But finding a treasure in limited supply is a big part of the fun.

Even though it was founded in 1897 and produces 4.5 million liters per year, don’t be surprised if you have never heard of the Glentauchers Distillery. There is no visitor center and nearly every drop of product has been sipped up by major Scotch blends — including as a major component of Ballentine’s, Teacher’s, and Black & White. Single Malt bottlings from this quality shop are extremely rare, but they do happen. Now’s your chance.

Five Lions Glentauchers 13 YO 2002 is a classic Speyside aged thirteen years in premium ex-Bourbon casks with nothing artificial (as it should be) and bottled at near cask strength. It is sweet and grassy with a lovely, round balance.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
The Buchanan Blend, which was the first blend of Buchanan's, later became Black & White.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
