    Gummi Cherries

    Glenturret boasts being the oldest distillery of Scotland – founded in 1775 under the name The Hosh – and is the spiritual home of The Famous Grouse. In 2015 Glenturret jumped on the NAS-bandwagon with the release of the Triple Wood, Sherry Edition and Peated expressions. Today, I will try the second batch of their Sherry Edition. The first one, which I tried about a year and a half ago – was quite okay for an entry level malt.

    Spicy and candy-like nose that reminds me of gingerbread, red fruit, cherry juice and something sour. Unfortunately there is also a big hit of cardboard, which I am not very fond of. And I can actually smell both wood and some baker’s yeast.

    It is creamy and sweet on the palate, with again red fruit (even some gummi cherries from the candy store), with quite a feisty spiciness. Think cloves and a bit of nutmeg. There is also a big drying edge from the oak, which seems a bit loud.

    The finish is its biggest trump card: long, warm, sweet and soothing. Now the oak whispers.

    A touch different than the first batch, not bad nor worse. Quite okay as entry level malt, with a pricing tag to match.

    Another NAS to avoid.
    Thanks to karloff for the warning and the sample.
    • Nose

      Dark chocolate, faint sherry notes.
      Sherry comes across as a bit stale, at times even with notes of rancid meat.
      After a while some wood, or more like dry hardwood saw dust.
      I get a dry vegetal/herbal note, but it's hard to define.

      Initially spicy, but it wears off fast.
      Caramel and dry bitter wood.
      That's about it.
    • Finish

      Spicyness seems to pick up again on the finish.
      Too bad it's not a good spicyness, it's dry and bitter.
      So for once, it's a good thing it's really short.

    This is just another knocked up nas and not a very good one. My first Glenturret and not a good first impression. Have to try an IB. 
    • Nose
      Some caramel chocolate at first and then old furnished wood, some nuts, a broth or a stew simmering. There is brown ale beer and brown bread that is a little stale. Coming in at the end is a slightly stagnant pond, let's say just on the turn. 
    • Taste
      Quite astringent, this tastes young. It's dry and bitter and this takes away any chance of the flavours showing their hand. Just some of that nuttiness and you can taste the wood but in this case it isn't a good thing. 
    • Finish
      The alcohol burn just sits on your tongue and again leaves that dry bitterness.
