Whisky Reviews for Glenturret 1977 TWA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.65 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    N- Not at all anything "fishy" as suggested with the giant kracken shown on the label. Instead this is for pastry lover, delicious vanilla custard, milk candy, sour fruit tarts, chocolate danish, shredded dehydrated coconut with fine musky wood notes.

    P- Lifted floral fragrant with abundance of ripe tropical fruits, rice pudding, coated with thick vanilla and soft honey. Full without being offensive, well structured and matured by years of aging, well layered of oak and strength at great harmony.

    F- Long, mildly sweet liquorice, minty with right touch of restrained spiciness that lasts, great bottling. — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    My first sip was the best one, unfortunately. After that, the sourness was too present on the palate to make this a 90-pointer. Not bad but I’ve had better Glenturrets from 1977. Slightly disappointing, I dare to say.

    A fine substance from the bourbon barrel.
    • Nose
      Yes, yes, yes. The spirit has taken everything and the barrel has given the best. Deep aromas of vanilla, caramel / toffee / fudge, hinig, butterscotch. Very fruity (tropical fruits), bubble gum, coconut, gummy, cake dough / pancake / biscuit, marzipan. Complex, multilayered, simply awesome. 45 points
    • Taste
      Medium viscosity, many thick streaks on the glass. From the nose to the mouth, it continues seamlessly. Creamy-oily texture with a lot of herbal-spicy honey, vanilla, caramel / fudge, citrus, citrusy oranges, creamy brulee. Overall sweet-creamy-nutty. 45 points.
    • Finish
      Medium long, lots of honey, herbal aromas, sweet and toasted oak.
