Glenturret Sherry Edition is exactly what it sounds like, and more … with a full-bodied aroma and subtle sweetness you will find intoxicating.
 
In 1775, the Glenturret Distillery started paying taxes on their Whisky production. But starting way back in 1717, an unknown source of Whisky was produced in the area that the excisemen were never able to locate. As far as the controlling legal authorities are concerned, those 58 years are still a mystery. Whistles nervously, looks awkwardly at shoes, quickly changes subject ….  
 
Interestingly, the distillery was originally named “Hosh” which is from the Gaelic word for “foot,” as in at the foot of the mountainBen Chonzie—that delivers the incredibly pure, naturally soft spring water for the Whisky. But at their centennial celebration in 1875 the new owners officially changed the name to Glenturret in recognition of the local town-folk. These hearty citizens are Highlanders b’God, and their small-batch single-malt production is a vital part of the Famous Grouse family at Highland Distillers.
 
Glenturret Sherry Edition is exactly what it sounds like, and more. Where some Sherry-influenced Whisky is “finished” in Sherry casks, this beauty was born right into Spanish and American Sherry casks and has known nothing else. So where the core Glenturret single-malt has the classic golden-straw color and lightness, this baby has an amber-rose blush and subtly sweet character. 
 
If you are a bloke, all that richness and full-bodied character is like Anne Hathaway with red hair. If you are a lady who loves fine Whisky, it might taste like a Robert Burns poem read softly by Antonio Banderas. The point is that it tastes refined, seductive, and intoxicating. And if you ARE a lady who loves fine Whisky, Uncle Flaviar says, “call me!”
 
SmartAss Corner

Glenturret Distillery is famous for more than just its signature single-malt. Towser the Mouser—a long-hair, tortoise-shell calico cat who ruled the distillery from 1963 through 1987—holds the Guinness Book World record for most mice caught with a confirmed 28,899 kills. Each morning, Towser would line up the mornings successes for the Distillery masters approval.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
'The Famous Grouse Experience' is located in the Glenturret Distillery. So it's not hard to believe that a big amount of malt Whisky from Glenturret, is used in Famous Grouse blends.
