    Glenturret also produces smoky whiskies, independently bottled called Ruadh Maor and can be quite good. This appears in the new Core Range and is the 2021 release. 50% vol., not chill-filtered, undyed - that's how whisky should be. I really liked the 12-year-old, unpeated from the 2021 release. This took last place in WhiskyJason's Double Blind Whisky Tasting Peated Regions. Deserved?
    • Nose
      On the nose there is a sweet note with some malt sugar but also artificial sweetener notes. Then an aroma that is, in the best case, shortbread with a lot of butter, but tends towards butyric acid here. In addition citrus fruit, light smoke that goes in the direction of paint mud (brush cleaner ...). Some bitterness bites the nose.
    • Taste
      It offers smoke with gum, gets pungent, some musty fruit - immature smoke. Those were my notes in the blind tasting. In the open sample it has become a bit milder, the rubber aspect is becoming less. Nevertheless, there is a sharpness that does not come from the alcohol alone.
    • Finish
      The aftertaste is weak. Little of the whisky remains and the smoke is not convincing either. Sharpness and bitterness remain and the sweetener aspect.

      That's not really convincing. When you taste it, it's not as cruel as when you taste it, but it offers too little to get on the buy list. The Maiden release from 2020 should have been better. In my tasting, he wasn't in last place, but penultimate. Loser was at Springbank 15. But that's another story...

    The smoke is very noticeable when you first pour it, but mellows significantly after some time revealing lemon yoghurt, subtle citrus and tropical fruits. A few drops of water emphasise the fruits even further and reveal some creamy vanilla. The smoke becomes really subtle. Very nice mouthfeel. This is a tasty, easy drinking peated dram.

    Glenturret 10 Years Peat Smoked, 50% alc. Original bottling (release 2021). Aging: European and American oak barrels

    Nose: fire and smoke, fairly clear and distinct. Campfire, peat smoke and marinated meat, then straight away mild citrus fruits. Behind it I find caramel, damp forest floor and grass, some eucalyptus and a cellar smell. It goes back to the campfire, then maritime aromas, sea salt and flotsam mix.

    Palate: Quite intense and rich in aromas, slightly oily consistency. Lots of peat smoke, some ash. Dark chocolate with sea salt, spicy jam, fresh oak and pepper. Also charred bread, caramel and coffee beans.

    Finish: Medium to long, the emphasis is on decaying peat smoke and black pepper.

    Conclusion: I would not have expected that. Pleasant complexity without overwhelming, the peat smoke really suits this Glenturret very well. It gets plus points for the increased drinking strength, and it is neither colored nor cold-filtered. A nice development. 85/100 points (2021)
