The Sherry Edition from Glenturret, which saw the light of day in 2015, is comparable to the Triple Wood. The only thing lacking in the mix is the bourbon cask matured whisky – this is solely a vatting of both American and European sherry oak.

Ha! Lovely nose. Baker’s spices and vanilla precede some red fruit. Mildly sweet and sour as if from strawberries and raspberries with a single kriek in the mix. Reminds me a bit of that typical Belgian kriek beer.

Very creamy on the palate, as well as very sweet and sour and spicy. Again red fruit, upholstered with some fresh peach. Slowly evolves towards a darker side, but it does not quite reach it.

The finish is medium long and spicy, but very sweet indeed.

The promise of the nose is not quite fulfilled on the palate in my opinion. Nevertheless, this is a lovely entry level malt, available for a very fair price.
