Colour is deep yellow (straw). The nose is fresh and refined and marked by almond, citrus fruits and malted barley. The light palate confirms the nose, with a hint of peat.
The short finish is discrete. A nice malt for classic whisky lovers.

Personal Comment
A pleasant smell announces a very good whisky. The taste is slightly acid (citrus fruits) and is not really special. The finish does practically not exist... A pleasant whisky, that's all..
70/100.
A rather discrete nose, with some fresh and slightly acid malt notes, a rather sweet taste, but unimpressive and with a lack at complexity and a finish leaving no great remembrances...
70/100.
Comment by J.L. Zamora
Very refreshing and refined, citric touches a bit sweet also nut.
Palate: not this one at the level of the nose, citrus fruits, touch to dried fruits nut and a certain sweetness ultimately and a bit of very light peaty. Very light palate

The nose reveals cut grass and citrus fruits. The taste confirms the nose, and is slightly malted.
The finish is long and pleasant.
Personal Comment
A pleasant whisky from the middle of the Highlands. This whisky can be considered as a classic one, very good, but without surprises.

At the second tasting, the nose was really marked by citrus (orange). A kind of acidity in the smell. The taste is rather acid as well even if it is nicely fresh, with some malt on the background. The finish is of average length, still marked by the freshness and acidity.
70/100
The nose is rather woody and slightly marked by citrus fruits (a very light touch of acidity) on a floral background. In the palate, a great sweetness and still the presence of citrus fruits (tangerine) and a very slight woody touch. The finish is interesting and more marked by wood than the nose and palate were. However, wood is not really dominating. The finish is quite long and pleasant. The quotation at the third tasting is higher than at the preceding ones.
79/100
After a first quite fruity nose, pleasant and complex malt fragrances mixed with cut grass and a hint of yeast follow.
The very first mouth is rather fresh as well, with a kind of candy acidity, and light hints of hazelnut. The overall feeling is sweetness rather than great complexity.
The finish is not tool long, but a memory of sweet and light bitterness prolongs for a while. A kind of decreasing finish.

Glenturret 1980 MOS
Personal Comment

Color: Gold
The nose is fresh, green fruit with a hint of bitterness. It is relatively complex and far from unpleasant, despite the suspicion that distinguishes yeast in the background. First fruity impression is clearly completed with a little heady floral notes.
On the palate, it has honey, ripe fruit and a slight bitterness. The mouth is in the same line as the nose, although it is more complex and more enjoyable. The whole is strongly influenced by the sweetness of ripe fruit.
The finish is quite long, on honey and ripe fruit. A little too sweet perhaps.
A great surprise. I drank few Glenturret as enjoyable as this one.

Glenturret MOS 1977
Personal Comment

Color: Gold
A fairly complex nose, but which unfortunately emits odors that are not usually my favor. Very malty with hints of yeast ... Fortunately these hints of yeast fade fairly quickly. A nice contrast between the sweetness of the cereal and a discreet bitterness.
The first impression on the palate really contrasts with the nose. Gingerbread, fruit, and a real firework of tastes. The sweetness of the malt is always present and contributes significantly to the remarkable balance of this whisky.
The finish is long and very pleasant. A mixture of cereal and fruit prolongs the pleasure of the mouth.

After a rather disappointing nose, the mouth raises the standard of this outstanding whisky.

Glenturret 35 WM
Personal Comment
Color: Gold
The nose is very expressive on vegetal notes combining mint and cut grass with nice spices, pepper, cloves, followed by a hint of honey. The nose is extremely engaging, with all the complexity we appreciate a good whisky. If the mouth is in the same vein, we are dealing here with a very great whisky.
In the mouth, we initially have a certain bitterness (gentian) and a strong presence of alcohol, which however, does not interfere with the tasting. This vegetal bitterness (no wood hinder here) is constantly evolving and vegetal notes from the nose unfold gradually. A beautiful texture and the pleasant freshness that contrasts with the bitter vegetal attack. Here's some nice work.
The finish is quite long and starts on the same tones as the mouth. A beautiful vegetal bitterness.

An unpleasant smell of yeast or powdered insecticide dominates the first nose. And this nose does not develop a lot even if some discrete fruit touches appear after a while.
The mouth is just a combination of yeast and fruit.
The finish is long and warm and still haunted by this yeasty impression and reveals the oily character of this whisky, which was not obvious in the palate.

The nose is clearly marked by yeast hints. Behind this first impression, there is a light veil of smoke and some farmy smells, wet hay.
In the palate, this whisky becomes more interesting with some nice fruity hints and a kind of complexity.
The finish is long, and the farmy memories of the nose reappear.
I am personally not a great fan of Glenturret, but I must say this bottle is the best I tasted from this distillery till now.

Commentaire de Jeep
Nose: Expressive when the whisky is poured into the glass. Yellow fruit (peach, plum) and exotic (pineapple). Slightly mineral. Very fresh. After aeration, was in a real glass of fresh fruit salad. really top
Taste: Begins with a bitterness which I find quite unpleasant and fruity takes place and there ... Yum. A little wax and spicy frame (pepper) are more complex overall.
Finish: Very long on fruit again: ripe pineapple and mango.
Conclusion: Top this whisky. A lot of fruit. Without this entry mouth that bothers me, it would be mounted higher.

Commentaire de Jbrice
Nose: metallic notes at the start. Then opens on a fruity heart, very fruity. Many quince and soft. almond notes. Fruitiness opens gradually with the aeration. It is beautifully melted with an exotic edge (pineapple).

Taste: Mostly vegetal notes and sweet almond emerge at the first sip. In the following, the fruitiness flourishes.

Finish: long with fruity overtones.

Finale: A whisky of very good quality with a nice balance and superbly melted. Very easy drinkable. Reminds me of some Tomatin 76 aged in 1st fill or refill sherry cask.

Commentaire de TTN
The nose is quite surprising with star anise but also many fruits including apricot and ripe bananas.
The palate is soft, smooth. It starts with fruit (apricot) and barley sugar, then quickly appear notes of citrus (orange and grapefruit).
Final good length in the continuity of the mouth.
A very nice malt full of very drinkable fruit, yum!

Commentaire de Jmputz
Color: Gold
A pleasantly fruity nose, blending the sweetness of the peach with a slight bitterness (very discreet gentian). Followed by beautiful and intense floral notes. The floral aspect perfectly blends with the fruity character which was immediately obvious. The nose is excellent, complex, with anenjoyable balance.
In the mouth, a subtle blend of fruity sweetness and vegetal bitterness is immediately present, but the taste is rapidly evolving towards more bitterness. The mouth also has many qualities but unfortunately weakens pretty quickly.
The finish is in the same colors as the mouth. Pleasantly bitter, relatively long and fresh.

Nose: Oily, very ripe fruit, rice cake, slightly lemony, meringue (especially after aeration).

Taste: Lemon, meringue, mineral.

Finale: Pretty fruity, soft, long, spicy, meringue, honey, light tropical fruits.

Commentaire de Singlemalt71
Nose: Pleasant spicy and floral. After a while some aromas of biscuit and a warm sweetness. At a certain moment, the smell gets musty and fruity (candied fruit) ... Delicious.

Taste: Very soft, fruity and sweet (honey).

Finish: Medium long with some light wood tones and a little bit spicy.

Commentaire de Dede
Color: Old gold

Nose: Nice, a tangy fruitiness with vanilla sweetness. Becomes moer heady after aeration, a mixture of overripe fruit (pears, yellow fruit) and sweet spices (nutmeg, some cinnamon). Water reduces the fruitiness, showing some greenness.

Mouth: Powerful, even spicy attack. Dry, it grows on acidic / bitter duet (bitter orange peel, quinine). But malt deserves a little water. It is nice, though not especially spectacular. Tangy and spicy (ginger, nutmeg), with a slight bitterness bonus. Slightly soapy.

Finish: Quite long, powerful, spicy, always oscillating between acidity and bitterness.

Conclusion: A flawless malt except that it requires a water feature, but without special magic either.

(Second pass, bottle known : nose most exotic, beautiful basket of tart ripe fruit. Still powerful mouth without water, alcohol not particularly well integrated. Mouth excites me less than the nose.)

Commentaire de Piazzolla
Nose: retained, but with enough captivatingdelicately fruity and slightly floral notes . Slight hint of paraffin also (a Clynelish?).
Mouth: beautiful oily and silky texture, basket of continental fruits (pear / white peach).
Final: average and scalable on some minerality.
Conclusion: A beautiful and good malt, especially very enjoyable mouth and nice nose if you make the effort to get involved. Still lacks complexity to reach the heights.

Commentaire de Mapi
Light brown golden reflections

Nose: opening aromas of ripe fruit and fermentation and with aeration one enters a dense vanilla evolving on the woodiness before ending on turmeric. Lack of power, pep.

Palate: The palate is fresh although a little dusty. It then evolves over a round texture with buttered side. We're on dried fruit (raisins, roasted hazelnuts).

Final: Open final, with tonus because alcohol is finally revealed bringing beautiful mocha.

A rather pleasant or flattering whisky.

Commentaire de Arno
Nose: the nose at first very focused on green apple, acid but also a little bitter. Initially rather closed, in addition to wood, found mostly spices, and especially wax notes, scented candle. Aeration add other fruits, ie pear, green apple still some exotic fruit, pineapple. That's better.
Taste: apples, spices, and finds herself on very bitter malted notes, dry wood. Salty touch. Maybe some pastry notes, but also old paper.
Final: swells, rounder & sweet almond, oak young. But bitterness of the nut.
Conclusion: shy nose but finesse. Mouth hard. A malt 'work done', but remains fairly conventional. Not bad.

Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Pale amber.
Nose: Starts delicately fragrant, with quite some stone fruits (ripe apricot). Quickly grows oakier, with pencil shavings and some soft vanilla. A little tinned pineapple and some rum baba as well. The nice fruity & sexy side of oak if you ask me. Others may find it too oaky, but I find it pretty attractive, if not extremely complex.
Mouth: Yes. The easy side of the oak indeed. Pretty uncomplicated, but rather seductive, like this nice Tomatin "Mr. C" provided us with, a couple of years ago. Less fruits than on the nose, and more soft spices (cinamon). Very smooth, with no alcohol bite (43% ?).
Finish: Rather long, it fades away on a slight oaky bitterness.
Comment: An easy-drinking Speysider dominated by soft oaky flavours. A little lack of personality, but a great partner for the aperitif.

Commentaire de Malt1972
Colour: old gold.
Nose: fresh and fruity. Lots of sweetness. Peaches, pineapples and apricots. Custard powder. Floral notes of violets. Some undertones of butter as well.
Taste: lots of tropical fruit with a light peppery edge which disappears quickly. Some vanilla and honey. It all develops in a gentle way, but it also stays a little too thin for my taste.
Finish: medium long. The sweetness remains for quite a long time. Not any trace of oak of whatsoever.

Comment: a very sweet and fruity whisky of which in particular the nose is pleasant. Not a very complex dram though.

Commentaire de Flonews
Color: light gold

Nose: Rather herbaceous showing hardly a rounder base. Adding water softens all but makes it very discreet. The flavors are slow to rounding.

Palate: Without water, very steep, but quickly reveals fatter and gourmet butter notes, wood, spices. Adding a touch of water is very beneficial, revealing a range of milder spices, identified by small citrus zest and bathed in the woods.

Final: Quite short, especially on wood

Pleasant but not really have specific notes.
