Our tasting notes...
Our nine year old peated Glenturret is a fascinating dram which takes water very well, revealing an array of flavours
Initially the nose gives up sherry oak and a slightly medicinal smokiness. Underneath that there's fruit - dried dates and figs, shading into dark pipe tobacco. With water the fruitiness increases, and we see a lovely sweet cream sherry note. Adding still more water teases out vanilla notes and brings out an earthy aspect of the peat smoke.
There is a real sweetness to the initial taste, a mouthcoating impression of smoky sherry trifle. There is a lovely evolution through the midpalate to a drying, oaky finish. Adding water emphasises the spicy aspects of the oak, and the smoke seems a little funky. Another dash of water reveals hints of marzipan, biscuity malt, and more grassy peat smoke.
This is a complex, multi-faceted malt which reveals a different aspect every time you take a sip.
