  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice Glenturret! Although not really recognizable as one as the wood is dominant, this whisky is very tasty at an interesting p/q ratio. It offer loads of berries like raspberries, cranberry’s and blueberries mixed with cherries and syrupy caramel. I do get a slight hint of sulfur but that doesn’t spoil the fun at all. Alcohol could be better integrated.

  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Quite an average and typical sherry maturation. A common, shortly seasoned sherry cask with a rich palate of several red fruits. Well balanced and pleasantly drinkable at CS.
    • Nose
      Warm sensation. Sweet and a tad sour. Berries, apricots and ginger. Pleasant, delicate and friendly without water. Doesn’t improve with water.
    • Taste
      Tasteful, warm, tingling. Quite agressive and a tad dry. Quite typical behavior for a whisky of this age. Does improve with water. A lot better accesible.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Initially quite heavy and spicy. After that Red fruits all over the place and quite soft at the end. Not the worst, not the best. With water a bit less spicy and a bit more herbal.

      In total I can’t say I’m blown away but it is definitely drinkable and tasteful. P/Q wise I wouldn’t buy it. There’s better whisky out there in this range.

    A sherry whisky that has much more to offer than just sherry. I mean, still able to taste Glenturret. He does not need water, and without water I find him better too. That must have been a really good barrel, and I would have loved a bottle ...
    • Nose
      Overripe blackberries, red cherries, green apples, malt, summer honey, only later come ashy-spicy notes, what a nose! Later it will be creamier, with a hint of vanilla. With water a little less fruit, but malt and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Blackberries, lilac, coffee, a little oak, vanilla, ashen notes. More oak with water, less fruit. Prunes, hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      Espresso, still blackberry and red, ripe cherries. Long and fruity finish.

    This is no dark sheried one, the sweet yellow fruits dominate. The sweetness is countered by a bitter dryness after a while, but the balance could have been better.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A lovely sweet nose with sweet flowers, vanilla, citrus fruit, necatrine, apricot and honey. Some caramel and furniture polish give it more depth.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Starts on sweet vanilla, sweet citrus fruits and honey, followed by subtle spices and sesame seeds. It has a slightly bitter and dirty edge with a hint of sulphur and metal.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Sweet citrus fruits with sherry and soy sauce. It's quite tannic, but the dry finish isn't disturbing. Lingers on sesame seed and light leafy smoke.

  5. Erik1908 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    And then there was this sudden hype of this Glenturret bottling. Close to 88 points at 125 votes. But given the first fill sherry cask, is this a typical "glen-sherry"?
    • Nose
      90 90
      Beautiful non-aggressive sweet and fruity sherry nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Warm mouth feeling. Overripe fruits. Chocolate-coffee flavors. Mild spices.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length. Sweet coffee flavors remain longest.

      Conclusion: thank God, no glen-sherry! Great Glenturret bottling.

  10. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nice part, interesting wood juice and clove notes typical of Glenturret. Very well done, and the youth doesn't bother me here, he is quite individual and not as interchangeable as many other sherry malt
