Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: New leather, Eccles cakes and stewed prunes. Buttery pastry disappears under an onslaught of fruit, with baked apples, dates and figs piling on. Candied notes develop – aniseed twists and blackcurrant boiled sweets. Hiding at the back are darker notes of tar and barrel char.
Palate: Rich and thick. Raisins, fresh plums and prunes lead to a pool of cherry and berry jam. The sweetness starts to diminish as dark chocolate and a hint of liquorice roll in. Rich at the back, raisin Jam and charred oak are joined by cinder toffee and a hint of tar.
Finish: Boiled sweets and real Maraschino cherries linger.
Comment: Big and bold, but not all consuming – look behind the sherry cask fruit and there's still Glenturret at the core
