2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 74.00 points

  1. alex..w..fan scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    the nose at first is encouraging, but then soapy kill everything, the taste of the French cologne and again the soap, sadly, so sadly...

  2. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: To complete tonight’s Glenturret trio [after 10yo WB and 13yo WB], again we have another good nose, seemingly improving as the age statements rise - coincidence? - possibly, lets move on. More of the same, very consistently - fusty, yeasty, maltiness, more jelly notes, bordering on marmalade but leaning heavily towards jelly babies, candy=floral again with a little lavender and definitely elderflowers with heaps of grainy/porridge mash that start to define this nose over time. Easy to read with an assured start.
    T: Oh no, its soapy, OBE no doubt. Going to let this one sit for a while. Bah, the soap didn’t go away but its still readable. Always a soft arrival but far more reasonable [for 40%] than the feather light 5000 days WB. After the [soapy] start, it opens out as a balanced, honeyed. malty mouthful - but it doesn’t last too long.
    F: Quick fade into a standard balanced malt finish. Concludes with fresh cut apples but concludes with a washing up liquid mash.
    C: Ill put the soapy note down to OBE. Nothing too bad otherwise, the rest rather standard. Just like the other two Glenturrets, none were fabulous and despite only scraping a grade, on record its a [soft] thumbs up for Glenturret - mainly for academic interest but not forgetting the good noses  - which is fortunate because i have another eight to go. For another day. Anyone else picked up a similarity between Glenturret and Inchgower?
