Michael Jackson

Nose
Decidedly more peaty.
Palate
Smooth. Fragrant peat-smoke throughout. Very distinctive, but lacks complexity.
Finish
A late interplay between intense malty sweetness and peat-smoke.
Comment
Distillery bottlings of Glenturret from this era tend to be quite sherryish, but this Signatory edition is not. The absence of sherry reveals the use of a truly peaty malt in the 1970s.

Jim Murray

Nose
Pretty oaky stuff: wood notes succeed in dampening the honey onslaught. A puff of smoke?
Palate
Early honey-malt in the true Glenturret tradition, then a wave of pretty big oak that suggests the end was just about nigh when bottled.
Finish
Burnt honeycomb and toffee blends well with the softening oak and that opaque trail of smoke.
Comment
Brinkmanship at its bravest and best: another summer would have done this one in.
