Tasting Notes by markjedi1
This is one of Scotland's best selling blends with almost 40 million bottles per annum. Few single malts can show such numbers. Actually, none can. It hails from the Glenturret distillery (that's not really true, it's not created there, it's merely the home of the Famous Grouse Experience).
The nose is delicate with flowers and grain, nicely balanced with the malt and fruity aromas. Despite the light body, this is quite a rich nose. Toffee with a touch of spices and a very enjoyable whiff of smoke.
While soft on the palate, it shows quite some spices and is quite easy to drink.
The finish is medium in length on the same.
It's understandable that this blend does so well. The price/quality equation of this supermarket whisky is hard to beat.
