The Glenturret Sherry Cask Edition features unpeated spirit exclusively matured in European oak Sherry seasoned casks. This expression delivers inviting soft, sweet aromas of vanilla and caramel and gives way to wood spices, ginger and gentle oak on the palate. This edition is crafted in small batches at Scotland's Oldest Working Distillery with less than 60 casks hand selected to create this unique dram per batch. This exclusive bottling is a beautifully rich and rare addition to the Glenturret range of Scotch whiskies.
Tasting Notes by The Glenturret's Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno:
Appearance: Golden Honey
Aroma: Creamy vanilla opens followed by toffee could be caramel. The two settle to give a softer mild nose which gives way to both fresh and stewed apple. Fresh cut oak arrives late. The notes are slightly, green with a hint of lacquer. A hint of wood putty colour can be seen nearer the bottom of the whisky giving a light viscosity.
Taste: Wood spices come to the fore. Ginger, nutmeg lead. A warmth is noted on the palate, could be forgiven for being slightly peppery. Sweetness enters later, with soft citrus fruits. Oak is clean and slightly dry.
Finish: Oaky, light fruit and sweet.
