Mashtun notes:

This is the second part our Glenturret ‘triple header’. The second review of their new core range is the sherry cask.

It was a warm summer day when we tried this dram and it fitted well with the conditions. The nose had warm sherry, sweet spicy oak, apricot jelly, apples, Caramac bars, and sweet toffee fudge. The palate had dark cherries, sherry, raspberry ripple ice cream, butterscotch, and lavender.  The finish was medium in length and sweet with some malty notes. It also had a lovely orange zest at the end. The colour was golden and it had a creamy texture. Air simplifies the nose and brings out a little vanilla, and we didn’t feel it required any water. The sherry notes on this whisky blend well with the citrus and cereal notes to produce an easy drinking dram for a nice summer day.

We all agreed that we would have liked to taste this at a higher ABV than 43%, but nevertheless this is a lovely wee sherry cask whisky and a good addition to the Glenturret range.
