In 1961, a historic overnight drive from Coventry to the Geneva Motor Show marked the birth of a motoring legend: the E-Type Jaguar. Few cars have created the impact and even fewer are still regarded with such enduring affection.

Test driver Norman Dewis had 11 hours to drive the E-Type from Coventry to Geneva. The journey taken by The Glenturret from milling and marrying through to filling the cask with new make spirit takes much longer, up to 240 hours but is every bit as extraordinary.

Two journeys, two legendary names: Jaguar and The Glenturret celebrated together as sublime examples of their respective crafts.

In celebration of this automotive icon delivering 265bhp we are proud to present an exclusive release limited to only 265 bottles

WHISKY MAKERS NOTES

A whisky inspired by the E-Type's character and charisma: rich intensity from the Oloroso sherry-seasoned European oak casks and delicate elegance from the Amontillado sherry-seasoned American oak casks.

Complex nose, SWEET and OILY with DARK FRUITS, DRIED GINGER and CLEAN OAK. TOFFEE APPLE and CARAMEL coat layers of FRUIT, with SYRUP and SWEET SPICE.

WOOD SPICES quickly accelerate on the palate then brake suddenly. DARKER FRUITS pull forward, LIQUORICE sweeps in, and SWEETNESS flows throughout. MATURING OAK intertwined with WOOD SPICE is last to arrive bringing a SWEET, SPICY, and WARMING finish.

Natural Colour and Non-Chill Filtered.
