“The Glenturret Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition is another very special, limited edition single cask of the very finest Glenturret malt.
“Cask #100 is the first edition to feature 100% fully-peated Ruadh Maor Glenturret at a cask strength of 58.9%. It is a highly collectable single cask dram that’s well worth the price tag.
“Peated Drummond is now available for shop tastings and we plan to introduce it to our Finest Tasting Tray in the coming days.”
Let’s have a wee taste.
The Glenturret Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition-Highland Single Malt Single Cask Scotch Whisky, 58.9% Alc/vol 70cl
Colour…Polished light pine
Nose…Drifting smoke and tarry ropes, freshly sanded oak, a newly opened first aid box, intoxicating.
Taste…There is no hiding place for the wonderful peaty smoke, the palate is big on smoke and sweetness, the BBQ is now fired up and we have shellfish and seared gammon sizzling away, now there is a nutty character and salted pistachio nuts.
Finish…Sitting in a seaside cottage with the open fire burning damp peat, slowly sipping this dram, getting a long finish of pork crackling, hints of ash and aniseed, oh so delightful.
Now that’s a dram. loved it, loved it. The peat, the smoke the underlying sweetness all married so well. Well done to Ian and team at Glenturret, you have a wee triumph on your hands.
