The Glenturret Peated Drummond Edition – 58.9%abv
Info: Distillery exclusive. This is cask 100, a refill hogshead cask filled on the 25th of March 2009, i.e. an 8yo peated Glenturret.
Colour: Light golden straw.
Nose: Sweet mellow peat amongst sweet distillery character. Light green fruits, green apples, gooseberries, and some gristy malt.
Palate: Surprisingly easy for such a strong dram. It’s fairly oily, nicely peated and tasty with the lighter green fruit tones coming through and malted digestive biscuits with almonds on them.
Finish: Almost fizzy, it’s long, slightly spiced and reasonably warming. Malty tones prevail to the end alongside a wee crack of white pepper.
Thoughts: Sometimes it’s nice having a younger dram to remind yourself that you don’t always have to buy really old drams, and this is one such dram! It’s fun and tasty.
Available: At the distillery. £145. 315 bottles.
Thanks to The Glenturret for the sample.
