Bourbon barrel – 48.4%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Stewed apples, honey, fudge, toasted nuts, polished wood, hints of nutmeg, a light floral element is there as well.
Palate: Rich with honey, butterscotch and apples, but also slightly herbal and waxy, underlined by a light and delicate briniess.
Finish: Long, fruity and waxy.
Overall: Older Glenturrets have a reputation of being soapy. This wonderful dram has just the tiniest hint of it, where it acts rather as a spice than as a flaw.
Rating: 89/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a bronze medal, re-tasted for notes.
