This 18 Year Old Glenturret was already bottled in 1990, meaning it is a distillate of the late ‘70s – of last century, obviously.
The nose starts off pleasant enough with sweet malt, apples and oranges. Mildly sweet and sour. Something candy-like and a lot of honey. Not much else going on, but having said that, there is nothing wrong with it either.
The arrival is rather weak with a piquant note of pepper. That fades very quickly and the malt actually falls apart. Midplate a surge of grainy wood makes it bitter. Cardboard appear. No, this is not pleasant.
The medium long finish evolves from sweet to sour (as in grapefruit).
The nose was nice, but the light body and palate are a let-down. A bit too sharp and bitter. Thanks anyway, Imanuel.
