    Nose: Ok, my olfactory nerves are spinning. I have a clear association: natural apple juice. Please switch to the next blog! After pushing this note aside, the red wine comes out. Light, not too strong, not too dry. The alcohol strength I barely notice in the nose, but I also tried the grain before. Taste: Tastes a bit perfumed. Turkish sweets with rose water and somehow a bit soapy. Definitely unique! Then comes a light note of white pepper, not spicy, but that very specific taste. The wine is there too, becoming a little drier, very slightly prickling on the tongue, heavy red wine notes come through. Finish: A finish like I have never experienced! Definitely a soap note. The whisky really leaves a topping in the mouth. Light tannins, but not only dry. Almost oily. But not for ever, after some time the Glenturret says goodbye again. Final thoughts: What an experience! You could call it a roller coaster ride, but then one with screws and looping! From apple juice, over rose water, to red wine and soap, everything is here. Even after the second argument with this malt I'm not sure if I really like it. Everyone has to decide for themselves here. It is something special, however, and definitely an exciting pleasure experience.

    the good too much very special but not my thing
    • Nose
      A light breeze of a red wine barrel and an unpleasant almost artificially perfumed scent of rose petals and soap
    • Taste
      At first, I almost feel like sherry mixes in, but then raisins, and then roses and soap
    • Finish
      The finish is long, at first very intense fruity then come tannin notes

    The nose is not complicated but promising, The taste start îf it will fulfil this promise but fades then in a short alcoholic perfume like finish. Starting good but an unbalanced whisky

    What's this?

    Perfumed, liquid cheap soap from the discounter?

    For me the worst thing I have had in the glass since Fujikai. Has flowed directly into the sink.

  5. Schleichende_Demenz scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    Terribly unbalanced Singel Malt.
    The two barrels are not compatible at all.
    Rose water and soap in the smell. The same thing when tasting. Disgusting and artificial. The departure just as bad. I can not get that artificial, soap-like taste away. Nah, that's a really bad whisky.

  6. Bosi scored this whisky 74 points Specialist

    A perfect example of a whisky that is completely out of balance. Despite the high age, one has the impression that an average whisky should be saved with a still unused wine barrel. Unfortunately, this procedure leads to the very taste-needy taste and finish.
    • Nose
      The wine note of the finishes dominates the beginning of the aroma. Behind it are cherries, overripe olive bread, some rosehip tea and a lot of cinnamon.
    • Taste
      The watery texture opens up a dry taste with red berries. Despite the age, the whisky is still quite aggressive. Now the taste of Turkish Delight mentioned in other tasting notes kisses with rose water with lots of tannins.
    • Finish
      The finish is long with a lot of sharpness and a lot of musty rose water and the already mentioned hand wash soap.

    At first I feel the Roses rather in the background. The red wine finish gives me more memories of aufgehübschte three-year-olds. Fortunately, the mature malt is there in the mouth. The pepper plays with me for a long time. Reference to the oak barrel in the background. Finish well and a little longer than 'medium long'. 2. Try after meal with more oxygen: Bäm! The pepper is gone and it dominates the perfume soap. Nasty finish. All in all ok, but not my thing. Was the finish really necessary?

    I like dry red wine, so this one is very interesting - but it breaks down into 2 parts on the palate, the roses are very special but definitely different
    • Nose
      Dry red wine, slightly acidic, a little musty, old cellar, moist wood, sour cherries and something flowery - reminiscent of grandma's fragrant yellow roses?
    • Taste
      Wine notes very dry and sour, peppery spicy, alcohol barely noticeable, again cherries, rose petals, deodorant with rose scent, then a little oak
    • Finish
      A little oak, sourish dry and when you think it's over, the rose aroma comes in again as not soapy as I've read more like Spear
