Glenturret 10 Year Old

Glenturret is not exactly a well-known malt, even though you can easily get it. But when I say Famous Grouse, that will surely ring a bell. This famous blend has its home base at Glenturret. When you visit the distillery, be sure to take part in the Famous Grouse Experience. In the meantime, allow me to tell you about the official 10 Year Old (albeit a bottling from a decade ago), which become the successor of the 12 Year Old (which we will try next).

While the nose is rather light, it is also quite expressive. Green apples, gooseberries and fresh melon precede a (albeit very docile) hint of spices. A touch of mint, some marzipan and honey. All very fresh and quite pleasant.

It is surprisingly creamy, but immediately bittersweet. Sweet from the fruit, but with a bitterness as if from green tea, undoubtedly induced by the wood. This fades a bit with the second sip to allow more room for the sweet notes. Honey and vanilla, but also lime and barley sugar. It works like a charm, but it is not a ‘difficult’ malt at all.

The finish is short, starts very sweet to die a very dry death because of the oak.

Fine spring whisky, no more, no less. But I can imagine that some people will find this a tad to dry.


Glenturret 10yo isn't the most consistent whisky but still it offered glimpses of greatness. And even when it wasn't gleaming, it managed to be a good dram. Nicely earthly and fresh on the nose and aftertaste.

I'll have to state it as the Mark Wahlberg whisky, in honor of Hollywood's inconsistent actor. And even though this whisky is much, much better than Wahlberg's movie The Happening, it also offers a force from nature, just like the movie.

Nose: Malted barley at start, brief moment of nice salty licorice and oak (a scent from heaven). Even some deep smoke in that brief moment. Earthly tone with malt and fruits.

Taste: Thick and sweet. Fruity with citrus being the main thing. Earthly notes. Water adds some spicy touch. Not as good as the nose.

Finish: Dry and sweet with oak and herbal, grassy feel. Long finish, lifting the whisky to another level again. Lemon peel is in the aftertaste.

Balance: Promising nose, a small cutback in taste and great resurrection in finish. Fine whisky.
