    Yea, nose is good, this one however has no kick on the palate, it's 40% ...
    But, then again, it's not an old whisky, it's old style whisky though !
    And for that much, i can't say it's bad, it's worth a try, Glenturret doesn't offer so many good bottlings overall, but if you have the chance to try this one, do it.
    It's not a disappointing one. Giving this less than 85 considering it's relatively young age would make it underrated...

    N: I should go to bed but iI fancy one more - cue 1968. My nose smells old, oily wood, heaps of fruits infused with the wood, heavy vanilla-toffee, cinnamon and the softest, fluffiest, baked apples in a pie. Later, more sherry cask notes develop, heading towards Carameland. This one puts me in a happy place thats for sure.
    T: Struggles at 40%. We have mainly [malty] fruit jelly [sweet apple &cranberries] and a little washing up liquid. Doesn’t appear to be have great age although the oak has certainly stamped its flavour mark. Some charring is evident also, but the distillate always has the lead. Over time it becomes more balance.
    F: ,............. heaps of vanilla now and more [vanilla] jelly. A dusty malt>soured-milk finish
    C: Overall its a bit lacking but theres always something special to take away from whiskies from this great era. Really enjoyable.

    Scores a C+ [84]
