This is a 28 year Glenturret matured in an ex-bourbon hogshead and bottled at 51.8% ABV.
Nose: Super malty with loads of dough – strong candied oranges emerging right away. Quite flowerly overall with lavender – lime juice developing as it opens up.
Palate: Strong heather and quite malty with heavy notes of orange peels and lemon drop candies with a bit of honey.
Finish: Citrus notes dominant as malt lingers on with honey.
Rating: 90/100 – One of the most citrusy malts I’ve had that I can remember – the bright, acidic orange notes complement the strong malt profile nicely.
Value for the money: I think I paid around $200 or so for this one delivered from an EU site awhile back, and I’d gladly pay that again.
