Whisky Reviews for Glenturret 2009 SMWS 16.33

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. FernetBranco scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    My first glenturret ... and that's really weird. Powerful and full of unusual flavors. Wax, kerosene ... Vaseline. Very crazy. Lots of herbs and actually pretty smoky. For my taste buds not necessarily "tasty" in the classical sense. But curious ...

  3. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The panel were taken aback by the sheer blast furnace of peat emanating from the glass. A whole phalanx of kippers, warm kedgeree, Arbroath smokies, peppered mackerel, frying bacon, bonfire ash, burning kelp, sheep dung, TCP drenched wool and a blade of tart berry fruit. Water brings a lively acidity with toasted fennel seed, silage, fermenting hay, horse stables, newspaper ink, wood ash, beach pebbles and salted butter. The arrival on the palate was massive. Sooty wax with the texture of aged mead. Pure peat oils, raw antiseptic and iodine tablets. With water the panel noted smoked German rauchbier, hot smoked paprika, bitumen, tar, horseradish, spicy salami and peat oils, peat smoke and more peat!
