Whisky reviews for Glenturret 1986 VM

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 89.00 points.

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      88 88
      Quite oaky, but with enough creamy ex-bourbon aspects and sour-lactic Glenturret weirdness to balance that out. Lots of tiny herbal notes that only bourbon-matured whiskies in this age bracket can display.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy, mild, and juicy, with a lush, if indistinct fruitiness. Peach, grape, mango, perhaps? The herbs are present here as well, especially in the last third of the flavor deleopment. Dangerously drinkable, and less idiosyncratic than the nose. Feels somehow thinner than 46.8%, though.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Moderately long and softly spicy, with all of the above flavors slowly fading out.

    In store sample.

    Viscous, chewy, malty. It has some nicely aged elements. Bit of a short finish, but very good. Keeping glenturret on the radar...
