Glenturret, which is Scotland’s oldest working distillery, also announced the release of its 2022 core range, which comprises Triple Wood, 7 Years Old Peat Smoked, 10 Years Old Peat Smoked, 12 Years Old and 15 Years Old. Each whisky in the core collection was matured in American and European oak Sherry-seasoned casks.
“Continually building on the relationship between our whisky drinkers and The Glenturret, the 2022 release introduces more American oak influence this year and our new 7 Years Old Peated Smoked,” Bob Dalgarno, Glenturret whisky maker, said, according to The Spirits Business.
The Glenturret 25 Years Old (42.2% ABV) is a limited-edition release of 210 bottles that came from three casks. The whisky, which the brand describes as “fruitful and full,” was created using two European oak butts and one refill hogshead.
There are 750 bottles of the 30-year-old available, each bottled at 42% ABV. The whisky is made from a Niepoort Portuguese oak cask, European oak Sherry and Moscatel casks.
