    I picked a up Carn Mor “Strictly Limited” peated Glenturret (Ruadh Mhor) 8yo sherry cask a while back, which at 46%, natural colour and unchill filtered seemed an interesting alternative and reasonably priced too…

    Just a reminder for all you non-UK viewers, less then 12 months to go before we can expect a pretty high price increse on all the scotch whiskys

    The Glenturret was maybe my first malt. VG and started a love affair. Agree the Famous Grouse distillery is a tourist trap. To be fair they did big up the turret when we were there in 2013

    I just looked back on your first review in the Manx bothy. The wall were whiter, the shelves were clearer, the Ralfy was younger. All that said, the consistency of your goal for whisky providence has been their from day one. I’ve been watching off and on for 5-6 years and the only things that change is your coat and the spot you sit.

    Sir Ralfy, you need external insulation and open fire, not dehumidifier.

    Had a Glenturret about 2 years ago at our whiskyclub, it was an integrity single cask Glenturret of Ruadh Maor (BD) at 59.3% ABV. Loved it and bought a bottle immediately at the club for 65 euro's, which I consider a bargain! Still have the bottle. Thumbs up from the Netherlands.

    Glenturret is known for being part of the Famous Grouse blends. I had the Smoky Black recently and it was the most pleasant blend I've ever had. Very mild smoke, perhaps too mild, but wonderfully sweet and balanced. I bought a Bowmore 12yo single malt with it and the Grouse beat it hands down.

    I visited 8 month ago and the Famous Grouse Experience was already by then terminated, and the large copper grouse at the entrance stating "Home of The Grouse" was removed.
    Wonder if the giant bird along with the concept is sold of localy. Was surprised to find a rather new looking road sign a couple of miles before reaching the distillery that said "The Famous Grouse Experience" pointing down a farm road.

    Not impressed by the distillery, the tour nor the whisky. Only really good Glenturret I've come across have been independant single cask and cask strenght.
    Their tasting room was a visual attack on the senses. Layout as a small auditorium, but with carpet, walls, ceiling and chairs all in bright red. Red on red on red on red, think the interior design idea was "let's make something that will keep them awake".
    One charming thing about the site was the memorial bronze statue of Towser the record holding cat, and how they had adapted several buildings with "walk ways" and flap doors for their two current cats. We encountered one of them in the still house, drowsing up against a boiling still so hot I could not touch it.

    There’s something classy about the simple chalk tag. There’s also something handy by knowing how old a review is based upon your Ralfy logo. Maybe it’s not a bad idea to change the font or style every year? Hmm, maybe an idea then. Maybe not.

    I've had a 27 yo for a while. Guess I'll have to crack it Ralfy. Bottled at 40%, it hasn't exactly been calling at me loudly.

    Hi Ralfy, I enjoy watching you describe what flavors you detect in the nectar. Some wood or coal will help with dampness/humidity. Best Regard's, Mark

    Picked up an independent bottling, cask strength and peated Glenturret recently and it is really fabulous
