This single cask Glenturret is from the Platinum Old & Rare series of very limited single malts from Hunter Laing & Co. bottled exclusively for The Whisky Shop.

There are aromas of tropical fruits – pineapple, mango and melon – alongside some soft oak, crème caramel and some gentle floral notes. With time it releases a bit more lemon zest, fresh meadow grasses and flowers, and some creamy hot chocolate.
On the palate the flavours are gentle with light honey sweetness. It shows it’s maturity with rich oak then stone fruits such as yellow plums and peaches developing into green grapes, sugar coated lemon and white chocolate finishing up with ruch toffee and vanilla.
