Whisky Reviews for Glenturret 10-year-old

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.26 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very sweet nose with caramel, wood, coffee. A buttered touch with late orange. Woody, honeyed, orange and lime palate. Delicate finish in aroma, quite sticky in texture, a spicy strand, orange zest. I thought it was a Speyside at first but no! It is much more corpulent. Excellent value for money: aspen Dalmore! Enthusiasm 4/5

  2. Allandale scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Body: light. Seems to vanish.
    • Nose
      Nasturtiums. Heavy. Sweet.
    • Taste
      Chloordyne. Cough sweets. Toffee.
    • Finish
      Minty and soothing.

    Fine

    Glenturret is not exactly a well-known malt, even though you can easily get it. But when I say Famous Grouse, that will surely ring a bell. This famous blend has its home base at Glenturret. When you visit the distillery, be sure to take part in the Famous Grouse Experience. In the meantime, allow me to tell you about the official 10 Year Old (albeit a bottling from a decade ago), which become the successor of the 12 Year Old (which we will try next).

    While the nose is rather light, it is also quite expressive. Green apples, gooseberries and fresh melon precede a (albeit very docile) hint of spices. A touch of mint, some marzipan and honey. All very fresh and quite pleasant.

    It is surprisingly creamy, but immediately bittersweet. Sweet from the fruit, but with a bitterness as if from green tea, undoubtedly induced by the wood. This fades a bit with the second sip to allow more room for the sweet notes. Honey and vanilla, but also lime and barley sugar. It works like a charm, but it is not a ‘difficult’ malt at all.

    The finish is short, starts very sweet to die a very dry death because of the oak.

    Fine spring whisky, no more, no less. But I can imagine that some people will find this a tad to dry.

    This one really needs a lot of time in the glas! No hurry! Maybe a tiny little drop of water ... ?

  8. HunterRomario scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Walnut, malted, sweetened with protruding alcohol, spice pinch. It reminds me of Ballantine's Finest, which is not the best business card for single malt whisky. (78 b)
    • Taste
      The taste no longer works like blended whisky, but it's not a miracle. Malt, walnuts, finely sweetish, tanned wood and oak tannins. (81 b)

  9. granella2003 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Spicy, floral and hints of lemon
    • Taste
      Soft texture with rich toffee and fruit flavors and delicious hints of sweet vanilla and ripe orange
    • Finish
      Long and warming finish
