This is an independent bottling of Glenturrent distillate by Old Particular (Douglas Laing) for KLWines in California. It is matured in a sherry cask and bottled at cask strenth with no coloring or filtering.
Rich currant, blackberry, cherry and honey. Pepper, tobacco. Rich syrupy fruits, with a nice spice undertone.
Thick, rich mouth feel. Some mild heat. Drinks well below 62% ABV. Sweet honey, plum and almond. Then the fruits hit like a truck. Blackberry, fig, cherry, currant. Bright and fruity, loaded with rich stewed fruits. Some pepper.
Long, rich and flavorful. Blackberry, graham cracker, pipe tobacco. Mild heat, although still tame compared to my expectation for the proof.
Really interesting, complex and frankly great release from Old Particular. Really wishing I bought more of this one.
