Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peat fires.
Palate: Smooth. Estery. Cooked morello cherries. A hint of creamy nougat. Nutty. Late spiciness.
Finish: Smoky. Peaty.
Comment: The better balanced of these two Glen Grants. The more integrated flavours. Seems to have matured better.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Oloroso wood with some fragrant/nutty notes some heavily roasted coriander/cumin seed, coffee and treacle. Water brings out chocolate, singed wool and walnut whip.
Palate: Chocolatey, tannic and smoky.
Finish: Dry and slightly bitter from wood tannins.
Comment: Old, venerable even, but only of historical interest.
