Glenturret 1992 16 year old cask #826 (Signatory)
Bottle: Standard Signatory bottling.
Nose: Salted lemon, musk and prunes. A hint of ozone too. Not bad.
Body: Medium and velvety.
Palate: Sour citrus of lemon and lime are dominant with some sugar syrup underlying. gets a bit peppery at the back. Not a huge mouth on it but has a nice balance in it’s restraint.
Finish: Good length. Chili chocolate with the citrus undercurrent.
Neat/Ice/Water: Neat at 43%.
Verdict: Quaffable. It’s been matured in a refill sherry butt (guessing 3rd fill based on the pale gold colour?) and it’s come together quite nicely. This is a competent, well balanced dram that you can easily sip on without having to focus too much on a riot of flavours or a particularly challenging profile. It’s pretty good, with tart citrus notes and a little spice at the end of it all. Only 845 bottles available but sold out by now so only possible to get this at auction which is precisely where I got mine. No need to hunt this one down but very drinkable if you stumble across it…
