Scotch Whisky Review: Glenturret Sherry Cask Edition Batch 3
This was far worse than I expected.
Glenturret Sherry Cask Edition Batch 3 / 43% ABV
Glenturret is a fairly small Highland distillery, with just 340,000 liters / year of production, and has passed through many parent company owners in the last 40 years, finally landing with the Lalique Group.
Bottled in 2017, the Glenturret Sherry Cask Edition Batch 3 is a NAS single malt made with European & American Oak Sherry Casks. It almost certainly coloured and chill-filtered, and obviously not cask strength.
- Color: tawny (1.4) — but probably e150a’d
- Nose: butyric acid, nail polish, a little bit of Oloroso sherry, stale bread, and ethanol
- Taste: malty-grainy, some sherry and sweetness, caramel; very thin
- Finish: I didn’t get one, just a little sugar
Where’s the whisky? There’s nothing here. Unfortunately, I think I have all three of the Glenturret single malt releases hiding away to try in the future. I believe there’s a peated one, and one more — maybe they’ll deliver something.
