    Well, this is a pleasant surprise! I bought this one as I have a cask Ruadh Moahr at the Glenturret distillery and I want to transfer this into an ex port cask as peat & port/sherry is a combi that goes well for me. And this is no exeption, I’m a big Port Charlotte fan and this is in the same league right away. It’s big and bold, by no means the alcohol is overpowering the fine port influences. No off notes, no sour notes, it’s scaringly smooth at almost 64%. Still available, if peated & port/sherry is your game grab one!

    Already the second smoky glenturret I tried. And this time I like the smoke profile not. The smoke comes very tarry and burnout moderate, which I do not like. In the nose, these tarnotes are not so recognizable, but in the body and finish but very pronounced.

    • Nose
      Liquid barbeque. Roasted meat, paired with a sugary sweetness of red fruits. Smoke and port work wonderfully here. The peat smoke here is ashen, ethereal woody nature, no trace of tar and algae. This is where the Highland Malt reveals itself.
    • Taste
      Pleasantly soft. Grapefruit dries on the mouth before glowing ash and fresh bacon put on the tongue. Not hot in alcohol, which at 63.8% vol. but surprised. The port manages to tame a lot here. Prunes and chilli make a harmonious combination.
    • Finish
      No bitter smoke in the finish, warm and mildly ashy. The sweetness of the port flashes again.
