Glenturret / Hunter Laing

Glenturret 26yr (Hunter Laing) Review

Glenturret 26yr (Hunter Laing) This is a really interesting dram bottled by the distillers for Hunter Laing, so quite an unusual bottling which is not really an independent bottling and not really an official bottling.

Official bottlings of Glenturret tend to come only in 10 Year old nowadays but i do remember visiting the distillery around 1999/2000 ish, as it was one of my first ever distillery visits, and having a tasting tray which also included 18, 21 and 25 year old official bottlings back then and the distillery has always held a wee corner of my heart since.

A really lovely easy drinking fruity and spicy dram with that traditional maltyness that comes with Glenturret, i really enjoyed this dram.

on the more expensive side at over £200 it is available to buy from The Whisky Exchange

Many thanks to Hunter Laing for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Oh what a lovely nose on this, initially lots of meaty malty notes which go dramatically cereally with lots of alpen and kellogs corn flaskes in here with an underlying sweetness which is very citrusy and oily, very much like the oil squeezed from waxy lemon and lime peel with a touch of acetone in here.

Palate

super sweet initially, with lemon and lime peel, dried fruits mainly apricots and a touch of dried banana, with meaty malt notes, some fruit oils lead to an oily mouth feel with a hint of ginger

Finish

mouthwatering, touch of ginger and sweet citrus.
