Glenturret 30 Year Old 1987/2018 Xtra Old Particular - Douglas Laing's

Delicate, Juicy, Oak, Vanilla
The Glenturret 30 years was bottled as part of the XOP (Xtra Old Particular) by the independent bottler Douglas Laing. The XOP bottlings come from the rarest and best stocks of the bottler and are always bottled from a single cask at natural cask strength. Unfiltered and uncoloured - just as natural as a whisky has to be.
As befits a unique single malt, the packaging is correspondingly elaborate. In addition to the handwritten bottle number (40 of 229), the bottle comes in a magnetically closing, high quality wooden packaging.

Delicate and multifaceted, we smell spicy oak aromas, nutty notes and old grey bread. Behind that lies a velvety softness, something buttery and vanilla-floral characteristics.


Just as buttery as the nose, notes reminiscent of oatmeal with honey in orange juice spread out on the palate. Further back, precisely integrated spicy oak notes, some apple juice and a malty sweetness come to full effect. The individual aromas are clearly distributed and are suitably transported by alcohol.


A long-lasting finish with spicy oak, which later turns into a delightful sweetness, rounds off the pleasure in style.


The 30 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky from the Glenturret distillery reminds us of a rich yet simple breakfast. An experience that is coherent all around. Each sip reveals a different facet. Delicious and simply great.
