Two Glenturret

and the Satan

Actually glad to see them again. After their first ‘new’ officers, known as Maiden Launch or one thing (jogs my memory of Herbie Hancock, do not ask me why) there are newer ‘common’ releases. Right now we have got the brand new 15 on the desk, in addition to a wee bunch of IBs in order that it would not really feel alone. The final one is one thing

Glenturret 15 yo '2021 Release' (53%, OB, European oak)

Glenturret 15 yo ‘2021 Launch’ (53%, OB, European oak) Four stars

The Maiden Launch was excellent in 2020 (WF 85). They’d bottled it at 55% vol. however they’ve cranked down the amount a wee bit this time. Thoughts you, ethanol is cash. Color: gold. Nostril: these peppery, mustardy and walnutty notes at first, very Glenturret, then many sorts of roasted nuts (pecans and chestnuts for positive) and honey-glazed hams. I discover it very complicated, as notes of dry pipe tobacco would come out too, along with some amontillado, brown trappiste beer and simply earth. With water: comparable territory, with somewhat extra soups, broths, soy sauce maybe, English brown sauces… Mouth (neat): very wealthy and really bittersweet. Begins with pepper and leather-based, goes then in direction of pepper and walnuts, then pepper and honey, then pepper and marmalade. Certainly, pepper operating the present this far. With water: will get rounder and sweeter. Honey sauce and spices, together with pepper certainly. End: lengthy, grassy, extra mustardy once more. Pepper and honey, unmentionable BBQ sauces (no worries) and a few form of peppery and honeyed beef jerky. Dry aftertaste, with some chlorophyll. Feedback: we have had just a few Glenmorangies simply earlier than this one. Effectively, that is simply the other, however any peaters.

SGP:571 – 86 factors.

Glenturret 8 yo 2012/2021 'Ruadh Maor' (63.1%, Berry Bros. & Rudd for La Maison du Whisky, butt, cask #468, 698 bottles)

Glenturret 8 yo 2012/2021 ‘Ruadh Maor’ (63.1%, Berry Bros. & Rudd, cask #468, 698 bottles) Two stars and a half

Ruadh Maor form of means peated in Gaelic. Only one query, do all these distinguished distillers and entrepreneurs truly communicate Gaelic? Color: gold. Nostril: sizzling mentholated butterscotch and sauna oils. That is all I will attempt to discover at this murderous energy. With water: you may add a magnum of Vittel, Highland Spring or Evian and it will nonetheless really feel sturdy. Many oak spices, juniper, turmeric and ginger, bitter oranges, burnt tyre, Glenturret’s mustardiness… Mouth (neat): feels rounded and straightforward, which is the dirtiest trick I’ve seen this season. Boy does it burn you – BB&R and LMDW, letters from our legal professionals are within the mail. With water: we tamed it, but it surely’s nonetheless sizzling and really spicy. It’s actually some form of sauce that you may pour over your venison burgers or leg of camel. I imply, mutton. Leg of mutton. End: lengthy, very spicy and smoky. Tennessee-style spicy BBQ sauce. Pencil shavings within the aftertaste. Feedback: what-was-this most thickest (!) retro-craft smoky whisky? Probably for below-40s solely. Conservative rating, grain of salt yadda yadda…

SGP:475 – 78 factors.

Since we’re doing crazies…

Glenturret 22 yo 1994/2017 (55.5%, Whiskybroker, Barolo finish, cask #220, 264 bottles)

Glenturret 22 yo 1994/2017 (55.5%, Whiskybroker, Barolo end, cask #220, 264 bottles)

My, Nebbiolo a.okay.a. the whisky-breaker! I am considering of the casks of Longrow, for instance, that this in any other case elegant Italian varietal has already killed prior to now… Even when this Glenturret spent solely 2 years in its Barolo/Nebbiolo cask… Potent pink on potent malt, properly, we’ll see. Color: apricot. Nostril: attention-grabbing, which isn’t solely a PC approach of claiming ‘an utter wreck’. It’s, certainly, attention-grabbing, a lot smoother than anticipated, seemingly balanced, and certainly very floral. Three hectares of peonies in full bloom! Sadly a contact of rose-scented cleaning soap is beginning to come via too… Fast… With water: outdated instruments, outdated greases, black propolis, cleaning soap, leather-based polish, sage, tarragon, plasticine… Not too positive, actually not too positive. Mouth (neat): no approach. Cleaning soap de la muerte and pepper dell’inferno. With water: what’s considerable right here is that it will be near the whackiest older officers. Aside from that, this utter soapganza simply kills your night, if not your day if you happen to had it for breakfast, which solely Russian subject marshals do lately, apparently. End: approach too lengthy. Feedback: it has been a very long time since I final tried such a nasty, completely undrinkable malt whisky. I am positive the in any other case very glorious bottlers did it simply to indicate the world that malt whisky may be very loopy too. For analysis, philosophy, peace and mankind. Thanks, Whiskybroker!

SGP:273 – 15 factors.

We’ll cease this proper right here, thanks to your understanding.
