Dating back to 1775, Glenturret is the oldest active distillery in Scotland. Formerly known as Hosh, the distillery was renamed in 1875. The distillery was closed and dismantled in the 1920s upon Prohibition’s enactment, remaining closed until the late 1950s. Glenturret’s claim to fame is its association with the Edrington Group’s Grouse blend, and today is one of the most frequented distilleries in the industry.
COLOR: Pale gold
NOSE: decadent toffee popcorn, milk chocolate and apple all appear at first, followed by soft hints of sandalwood.
TASTE: fragrant vanilla blended with caramel; golden syrup drips in,
rich and sugary.
FINISH: soft ginger spices shake up the finish very well.
