GLENTURRET 15 Year Old 2022 Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The excitement surrounding Glenturret exploded in 2019 when the distillery was purchased by a joint venture led by the French luxury lifestyle company The Lalique Group who have been working with Macallan for many years. A year later Glenturret launched a new range of whiskies created by the legendary Bob Dalgarno who spent 30 years at Macallan. That appointment piqued the curiosity of Scotch aficionados and collectors everywhere making Glenturret very hot property indeed…
The Glenturret 15 Year Old 2022 Release uses a higher proportion of European oak than its siblings and the additional ageing adds an immense depth of character. We love that this has been bottled at a warming 53%; adding a little water makes this stunning Single Malt go a little further. Baked apples filled with raisins and drizzled with honey Victoria sponge pine vibrant pepper dried fruit peaches in syrup crunchy pear crème brûlée toffee oaty flapjack polished antiques malted milk biscuits and sturdy oak; this is small-batch Scotch at its finest. And don’t even get us started on that gorgeous Lalique decanter; it’s a piece of glass art that we’ll keep hold of long after the whisky has been consumed.
Glenturret upholds a claim to be the “oldest working distillery in Scotland” with an ancient rental document suggesting that whisky was being made here as early as 1763 although presumably illicitly. Sitting on the bank of the River Turret at Crieff Glenturret certainly has a long and intriguing history having changed hands name and site on numerous occasions and having been repeatedly opened and closed and then reopened again. Most will know its location as home to one of Scotland’s premier tourist attractions the Famous Grouse Experience as it’s an important component of that world-famous blend. Or if you have very niche interests you may possibly be aware of Glenturret because of its record-breaking mouser a killer cat by the name of Towser. But forget the ancient history and weird footnotes it’s Glenturret’s new ownership that means it needs to be firmly on the radar of any Scotch lover.
