This is an independent bottling of peated spirit distilled at Glenturret and bottled by Scotch Universe. This particular expression spent 10 years maturing in a Ruby Port wine barrique before being bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering. Lets dive in.
Tons of wine and syrupy fruits. Toffee, vanilla, raspberry, black cherry, lime, strawberry. Super super wine forward. A malty sweetness.
Thick and syrupy mouth feel. Lots going on. Heat is really well tamed for the proof. Cherry, raspberry, lemon lime, blackberry. Mild smoke, faint oak, lightly ashy.
Long, lovely blend of peat and sweetness here. The ash, light burning wood note and the charcoal minerality blend nicely with the sweet fruits. Heat is very much in check here also which is great.
Huge fan of this one. Easily my favorite of the series. Nicely done folks.
