Whisky Reviews for Glenturret 1986 SV

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.04 points

  1. Malinois scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Good but not the best Turret '86.
    The pallet and finish is not as 'full' as other ones I tasted. A few more years maturation wouldn't be bad. The cask influences aren't that over dominant

  2. Syleo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    An exciting malt that lives up to its age and oscillates in a varied way between sour, sweet, dry and soft - although unfortunately it never really seems to settle down and therefore leaves me a little bit undecided. For me a very good, but not terrific malt. In addition, for me unfortunately 2 points deduction because of the rather intense acidity.

      The polished gold in the glass concentrates in the nose, first in rum raisin marzipan in milk chocolate. Slightly sour impressions follow, apricot, blood orange, currants and a little iodine and sour cream. Then the sweetness comes back with maple syrup and cane sugar, before again take on a very varied, more herbaceous notes of almonds, cigar boxes, softwoods and slightly musty-moist foliage.
    • Taste

      Heavy, bitter and burning, the softwood also draws its circles in the mouth, briefly the cane sugar flashes from the nose again. Blood orange, currants and raisins bring clear fruit, but less fresh or certainly not sweet, but rather winy dry and pointed.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish also balances between tartaric and chocolaty-creamy with blood orange peel, fresh wood, autumnal blossoms and whole milk.
