GLENTURRET 30 ans 1988 30th Anniversary S.V 52,4%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 55206

Founded in 1775, Glenturret, which as originally called Hosh Distillery, is the oldest distillery in Scotland. It produces a single malt destined primarily for the famous blended scotch Famous Grouse. Distilled on 23 June 1988, this version wonderfully embodies the deliciously herbaceous, abundantly fruity and deeply malty character of this south Highland whisky. Original in more than one way, it overflows with unusual flavours and aromas that are perfectly integrated into the rest of the palette.

Profile: the fresh and heady initial nose is mentholated, fruity (melon) and medicinal (balm). It then develops a more rustic register (dandelion). The fragrant attack is covered in a thin layer of caramel. The mid-palate is exotic (mango, pineapple), spicy (saffron) and aquatic (water lotus). The fleshy finish is resinous (pine) and also exotic (mango). The end of the palate is mentholated. Single Cask no. 532 – Hogshead.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep golden yellow.
  • Nose : fresh and heady. Refreshing thanks to its mentholated and fruity (canary melon, candied cherry) character. Heady thanks to its malty (malting floor), camphoric and medicinal (balm) notes. Upon closer inspection, the palette of aromas sits atop a thick pedestal of ginger, strong spices and salted butter caramel. Allowed to breathe, courgette flower, cucumber and even dandelion gradually come to the surface.
  • Palate : unctuous, fragrant. Also covered in a thin layer of salted butter caramel, the attack is characterized by a wonderfully pure expression of gooseberry and wild strawberry. The mid-palate then ventures to more exotic (pineapple, mango), spicy (ginger, saffron) and stewed (apple, Mirabelle plum, greengage plum) lands. The end of the palate is aquatic (water lily, water lotus).
  • Overall : Long, fleshy. The start of the finish is like biting into perfectly ripe white grapes. A fine note of pine resin brings lots of sap. Keen to leave for new fruity adventures, the retronasal olfaction reveals exceptionally fresh notes of mango and melon. Finally, making sure nothing is left out, the empty glass reproduces the entire aromatic palette, adding notes of aniseed and noble wood.
