The Glenturret Triple Wood
Price: I was unable to find since it’s sold in UK region
Aged in American Sherry oak, European Sherry oak and ex-bourbon casks
The Glenturret – the oldest working distillery in Scotland. This distillery has seen it all, and throughout most of the years it’s continued to produce- even though Wars, financial depressions, and an ever changing market. The distillery functioning since 1775 is now mainly working with an incredibly limited but very skillful crew. Keep in mind the distillery still handmakes almost everything in true traditional fashion. Everything about this brand is so extremely interesting and with an amazing line up of whiskies I only hope to see them expand.
Color : light golden amber.
Nose : Sweet fruits and oak, slight citrus -dried oranges and apricots.
Palate : baking spices, slight oak, more dried oranges, lingering sweetness.
Finish : medium finish more notes of the Sherry and oak come through, velvety texture.
Comments : This is a great choice for a beginner whisky drinker, the palate is appetizing enough without being overly complex, a lovely finish ABV is perfect and not too high which makes this a great daily sipper
