Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Glenturret? Let’s get ready for some fun, even more so since the excellent BBR haven’t declared any vintage for this, so maybe it’s a multi-vintage i.e. a marriage of several casks (which ‘cask ref #’ instead of ‘cask #’ may imply as well). But let’s not to lose ourselves in conjectures, let’s rather try this intriguing baby… Colour: gold.

Nose: Well well well, it’s not one of the whacky ones at all, which does not mean this baby’s boring, quite the opposite. First there’s a gentiany and liquoricy oak, then some quinces and kumquats, then touches of scented soap (it’s not soapy at all, rather toward roses, or say high-quality anti-wrinkle cream ;-)) and lastly, a blend of apple peel, cigarette tobacco and an earthy kind of tea. I think it’s wonderful.

Mouth: Bang! The only and very minor flaw is that maybe the middle is a tiny-wee bit thinnish but other than that, we have an almost perfect combination of overripe apples, salted butter toffee, various herbs, gingerbread and butterscotch. It becomes even a little medicinal, with tiny notes of cough lozenges.

Finish: Unexpectedly long, with some grapefruits and more apple peelings coming to the front as well as a most pleasant grassy bitterness.

Comments: Whatever they did, this is absolutely excellent and for once, that’s no opinion, it’s a fact. SGP:461 - 91 points.
