The more recently released entry level from the Highland distillery, Glenturret, released to replace the 12 year old. Glenturret is the spiritual (excuse the pun) heart of the Famous Grouse blend.

The nose is full with malted barley and toasty cereal. Notes of nutty oiliness, a touch of fruit peels and a herbal tones. There is a good oaken honeyed sweetness. The palate is fruity and rich with thick sweetness and well-balanced oaked tannins. A touch of cut hay and a little earthen notes. The finish is of medium-length with a beautiful sweetness.
So sweet, nice and drinkable. Sweet nose and fruity palate makes it very pleasant. Nice, but not unforgettable. Good price for what you get.
