2006 Glenturret 12 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1387610

After a rocky history of on again off again production, Glenturret, one of Scotland's smallest distilleries, settled into the portfolio of The Edrington Group - owner's of The Macallan and Highland Park, among others. With this change in ownership so too came a change in the destiny of Glenturret as a single malt. In 2002 Edrington transformed the distillery into The Famous Grouse Experience. While there are official distillery releases of Glenturret, the vast majority of their production goes into the Grouse blends and, if this single cask here is any indication, The Glenturret accounts for much of the lovable richness and intensity of that famous blend. In a full cask strenght of 62% and at a perfect 12 years of age, this malt is all caramel, cream, toffee, and treacle. Add a bit of water and chew a while on the rich body and sweet spice.

So for everyone that LOVED last year’s Aultmore, here is this year’s response. Three years older, higher proof, just as dark, but so much smoother. The massive sherry notes mask the high proof dangerously. Most people are wondering, "Glenturret? What the hell?" This boring old distillery, famously the home of the Grouse, has some tricks up its sleeve after all. The reason we're even seeing this outrageous cask is because Douglas Laing is actually Turret's distributor in Europe. They truly have the pick of the liter. And yes this is $25 more than last year Aultmore, but once you'll taste it you'll realize that it’s actually the better value of the two. We could easily ask twice the price and have no complaints. For sherry heads, this is easily the best buy of the season.

The dark color of this selection provides a hint of what is to come. This Glenturret 12 is rich and round with deep flavors that show sherry barrel influence. Full bodied and creamy, dried fruit and caramel flavors make this a delicious whiskey. Fans of sherry aged whiskeys should love this selection

This scotch is absolutely bursting with flavor. At under a hundred bucks you'd think this whiskey had something to prove-- so incredibly smooth and dark in color for it's fairly young age statement, proving once again that it is far more important what sort of barrel you choose than how long you leave the juice to rest. The nose on this is delightfully light and inviting (especially given that it's cask strength). Lots of savory wood flavors along with a very healthy dose of rancio sherry. The finish is dusted with a pinch of finely ground coffee and masala chai spice.

This Scotch has some incredibly deep Mahogany coloration for only being 12 years old, so there’s obviously a lot of Sherry influence going on. There’s big vanilla on the nose with marzipan, candied orange, spiced Christmas pear, dried fig, fresh ginger, menthol, and some deep woody notes. The palate is quite viscous and absolutely bursts with spices with the return of that ginger note plus black pepper and clove. The wood flavors come through strong as well, and then blend seamlessly with tasty bitter notes of black tea and cocoa nibs. Come over to the dark side!

Deep amber in color, this sherried hogshead is DARK for 12 years old! And it tastes every bit as rich and scrumptious as it looks. If you're a fan of Glendronach (and who among us isn't?) don't miss this one. It's chockablock full of candied oranges, crushed dates, dried figs, mocha, baklava, and a little aged leather and dried tobacco. You'd never know it was bottled at 62.3%ABV if you didn't look. It drinks like it's 80 proof, soft and easy, but with the intensity of flavor you want from CS whisky. The finish is rich and sweet with just a dash of pepper on top of maple syrup, all spice, caramel, and taffy chews. While I wouldn't want that combination on my pancake, it's a mighty fine blend in the glass. Once the secret of this cask is out, it will be in every Santa's gift sack this season.
