The Glenturret 10yo Peat Smoked

In de afgelopen jaren bezocht ik twee maal de Glenturret distillery in Crieff in het zuidelijke deel van de Schotse Highlands. In beide gevallen was de distillery nog eigendom van de Edrington Group en huisde ook The Famous Grouse Experience er nog. De laatste keer dat ik er was was in de zomer van 2018, een half jaar voor de verkoop van The Glenturret aan de Lalique Group. Nu, twee jaar later, is er de Maiden Release van een serie whisky’s onder het nieuwe management. De invloed van de nieuwe eigenaars is in ieder geval al heel duidelijk in het nieuwe design van de fles. Ik ben benieuwd naar de inhoud.

Turret’s Cask; The Glenturret Distillery revisited

In 2018 I took my family on a trip to the Highlands. Not a whiskytrip but a familyholiday this time. Of course I did my homework and that’s how I knew about a new handfill bottling at the Glenturret distillery. When I visited this distillery with Peter in 2016 we both filled a bottle from the Gerard Butler cask. Now Turret, one of the distillery cats, has a cask named after him and well, being in the neighborhood, I wouldn’t mind having another handfilled Glenturret in my collection. A daytrip from our cottage in Killin to Perth brought us past Crieff and the lovely distillery.

Whiskytrip 2016, Part 3 Glenturret

The third distillery we visited in the 2016 whiskytrip was the Glenturret Distillery just outside Crieff. We had something very special planned and booked at Glenturret so we didn’t want to be late. We were going to do the Blending Experience ánd handfill a bottle after that. Wouldn’t want to miss thát!
