Set in the beautiful Perthshire countryside, The Glenturret Distillery is Scotland’s oldest working distillery and a truly unique whisky experience. Glenturret Malt Whisky is still hand crafted today as it was over two centuries ago using the only remaining hand operated mash tun in Scotland. Drawing on the area’s plentiful natural resources, whisky is made by hand and heart and visitors will experience the traditional handmade distilling processes that have been used to craft the whiskies at The Glenturret Distillery for generations.Glenturret Whisky
Appearance – This whisky is mid gold in colour, it’s very viscous on the glass, and has syrupy thick legs.
Nose – We’re talking wood varnish, Pontefract cakes, black liquorice, star anise, the menthol is still there, dark chocolate, old hubba bubba pink chewing gums, and cocktail cherries, very nice tbh.
Palate – Initially the arrival is very gentle, though white pepper and chilli spicy are there, then citrus, oranges, apricots, a touch of lemon, a little menthol, and then woods start to come forward, with black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, cereals, cigar leaves, and high cocoa percentage dark chocolate.
Finish – The finish is lovely and long, with chilli, black pepper, cardamom and cinnamon spices, plenty of oak too, cigar leaves continue from the palate also.
My thoughts – I’ve really enjoyed this whisky, its a lovely mixture of light and dark fruits, and has enough going on to keep me happy.
Would i buy a bottle? – Yes i would, the whiskies in here are between 7-8 years old and show great maturity.
