What they say:
The Glenturret 10 year old single malt whisky, produced at Scotland’s oldest distillery, the Brand home of The Famous Grouse. On the palate, spicy citrus and orange, with a soft malty finish.
What I say:
The Glenturret 10 year old is the replacement for the older 12 year old official bottling from the Glenturret distillery in Crieff. I purchased this miniature sample and tasting glass whilst on a recent tour of the distillery.
Refractive gold with heavy tears
Orange blossom, sandalwood, vanilla and almonds, barley
Light zesty lemon citrus fills out in body to incorporate cereal malt, sweetness shifts lemon zest to orange, slight grassy/ hay and hints of pink grapefruit pith and honey, buttery in the mouth
Medium/ long with sweet citrus oranges and lemons with honey
Would I buy it again:
Yes, this is a fantastic dram that I seem to keep purchasing whenever I come across it in bars and pubs at the moment. Very easy drinking and a little refreshing, a perfect aperitif whisky. As one of our colleagues put it – a perfect lazy Sunday afternoon dram.
