This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, is inspired by Glenturret’s historical connection with peated whisky, when distillery founders John and Hugh Drummond forged an agreement around 1775, with neighbouring Ochtertyre estate to dig peat to fuel the fires to dry their barley for Glenturret.
The Glenturret Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition, is said to deliver notes of peat, hints of marzipan and dried oak tree bark on the nose, followed by notes of peat, spicy dry almonds and fired oak on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, John Laurie, General Manager at The Famous Grouse Experience based at Glenturret Distillery, said: “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.”
The Glenturret Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition, which is the first new bottling to be hand signed by the new Distilley Manager Ian Renwick, is now available from the Glenturret Distillery shop for £145.00.
