Whisky Reviews for Glenturret 15-year-old

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