Whisky Reviews for Glenturret 10-year-old
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.16 points
- Smells young on the nose and the palate is a little flat but it has a nice sweet finish to compensate.
- Well worth having a bottle in your collection.
Complex, sherry, light fruit, not deep (not like fruit cake)
Clean, wonderful taste, much more than you expect for a 10 YO. Tropical fruits, sherry and quite dry.
Long and dry. Still some tropical dried fruit.
- A very pleasant traditional whisky with a good development and a surprisingly long finish. Sadly seems to be discontinued in favor of various NAS-releases.
84/100 (neat or with half a teaspoon of water)
Vanilla and cereal notes dominate. Some citrus-zest and a hint of pineapple and almonds. A few drops of water intensifies the cereal and almond notes.
Very delicate and pleasant arrival with a lot of vanilla, honey and melon. Then increasingly spicy and with some darker fruits coming up; oranges, sultanas, raisins.
A gentle sweetness of melon and vanilla in combination with spice and a light oaky bitterness. The oak fades quickly, while a subtle mouthwatering sweetness persist surprising long.
- It's not really bad, but somehow it did not catch my heart.
Enough subtle - vanilla, caramel, nuts, a little earthy, fresh fruit hidden in the background along with a bit of spice. A little greed, I had to give the time to open, it was a lot weak
In the flavor of vanilla, cereal, perhaps even some earthy. Later, oranges, lightly pears, and underlying very fine spiciness are beginning to appear. All in all, it's so soft to creamy
From the beginning, sweet, later drying - matures together with fine pepper spice - medium long
- N: Ok, I'm not a big one for telling tales but the Glenturret tour guide couldn't tell the difference between this and the Famous Grouse after he got in a right muddle during pouring. It was a fair number of drams however but I had to put him right, nosing alone - and it was only my first day! I'd like to think I could sniff out a NAS blend from an aged single malt, but in all honesty they didn't smell too far apart. In time however the differences between them became more apparent. This showed its light cereal driven commitment with a few sultanas, rounded fruits and orange peel.
T: Light on the palate, not juvenile although a little spikey at first, neat that is. Far more bourbon led than the sherry-heavy Grouse.
F: Medium finish, a little dry with heathery cereal, chocolate and a little copper-herbal at the death.
C: it's a neutral, gently matured, cereal led single malt, perfect for blend - which is what Glenturret do, well done. This Glenturret is ‘the heart’ of Famous Grouse apparently, or so the marketing driven distillery tour would have us know. Let’s try that blend, not sure i ever have before WB.
Scores a D
- the dram is OK, but not very exciting, a real middle of the road whisky
sweet and sour, nice, I guess sherry cask play in important role to get this nose, sour sweets
candy, but a very farmilair taste, fruits
fruit and a little bitter at the end
- A very interesting whisky that often does not get the appreciation that it deserves. It is a somewhat more unknown whisky with a medium and rich character. Because this is a lesser-known whisky, he is also a little harder to get. But he is well worth the search.
beautiful scents, sweet, rich. He smells much older than he is. Dried fruit, bitter marzipan, pineapple jam. Sweet smells of roasted cereals with honey and nutty notes.
A very mature taste. Clean, fresh, oily and sweet. Dry fruit (dates, figs, and raisins). Almonds, vanilla and bitter orange peel.
Long finish with notes of vanilla, fruit, marzipan and sherry.
