Triple Wood 2021 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 ‘Maiden Release’ of this Scotch won silver medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021 and the World Whiskies Awards 2021. This is the highly anticipated follow up.
The Glenturret Triple Wood 2021 Release has been matured in a combination of European and American Sherry oak casks and ex-Bourbon barrels. These three woods have layered sweet fruitcake, crème caramel, Jamaican ginger cake, leathery vanilla pod, butterscotch, cigar humidor, Polish śliwka naleczowska, barley sugar, subtle spice, freshly hewn oak and red berry notes into this rich, robust and decadent-feeling small-batch Scotch. 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.
