Note by Whiskyfun (27.01.2014):

Bearing the 'retro' label. One colour only, that's economical!

Colour: gold.

Nose: superb. Fudge and butterscotch, orange cake, 'good' soap (saponin, perhaps), lamp oil, ripe mirabelles and dandelions plus lime-tea and fresh mint tea (in the Sahara, ha). A rounder but no-less entertaining Glenturrety nose. In other words, a civilised one.

Mouth (neat): I have the impression that everyone bottled the crappy casks ten or twenty years ago, and kept the good seed for the 2010s. Seriously, Glenturret's never been this good, at least it wasn't ten years ago, I'm dead sure. Liquorice, citronella, baked cider apples, curry sauce, mangos, tobacco, citrons, whitecurrants... It's all big and yet it's so fresh! I'm impressed.

Finish:  it's really the freshness that's impressive, and the fact that it kept much distillery character while losing the, say the unlikely edges.

Comments: I had already tried a few excellent 1977s (First Ed., TWA and such) but this one sure takes the biscuit.

SGP: 551 - 89 points (almost 90).

NOTE DE DÉGUSTATION (LMDW) :

  • Couleur : vieil or soutenu.
  • Nez : ample, parfaitement construit. Sa belle structure herbacée (persil, laurier) n'a d"égal que le caractère gourmand de ses fruits (prune jaune, pêche abricotée) et les parfums capiteux de ses fleurs (chèvrefeuille, rose blanche, pivoine). Au fur et à mesure, il devient abondamment miellé (fleur d'oranger, tilleul, acacia). Son charme possède la blondeur des champs d'orge.
  • Bouche : onctueuse et à son tour remarquablement équilibrée. L'orge vient d'être récoltée, des notes de terre humide et de réglisse enrobent avec une rare douceur les papilles. Pleine de dynamisme, elle s'en va parcourir des sentiers longés de mûriers sauvages. Des fruits exotiques transcendent la fin de bouche et l'emmènent jusqu"en finale.
  • Finale : lactique, crémeuse. Des tartes au mûres encore chaudes s'imprègnent des parfums de fleurs d"oranger, de chèvrefeuille et de jacinthe. Dans la foulée, des gelées de coing et de pommes se répandent délicatement sur le palais. Cette finale à la fois florale et gourmande est magnifique. La rétro olfaction est herbacée et le verre vide tendrement réglissé.
  • Commentaire : il est difficile de résister au charme de ce single malt élaboré par l'une des plus anciennes distilleries écossaises. Quand en plus, il s'agit d'une version estampillée Berry Brother's & Rudd Retro Bottling, il ne faut surtout pas bouder son plaisir et ne pas perdre une seule minute pour partir à la découverte d'un univers olfactif et gustatif d'une rare fluidité. Attention, gourmands, ne pas s'abstenir !
