Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Heady with an exotic lift. Chocolate, walnut whip, roasted nut. Oaky, but has some style. Water shows nutty, sherried notes.
Palate: A good weight of spirit. Rich and malty with a hint of soot. Pretty thick in the mouth and quite firm in structure. A complex range of flavours.
Finish: Dry and maybe just a little short.
Comment: Here's a rarity: an old Glen Grant in which the spirit hasn't been drowned by the cask.
8.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Dates. Brown sugar. Caramel.
Palate: Rich. Smooth. Moist fruitcake, slightly burnt on the outside.
Finish: Slight woody bitterness.
Comment: Glen Grant was one of the first malts to be bottled as a single malt, in the days when light-tasting spirits were often filled into heavy sherry casks. I have always felt that this overwhelms the spirit. This example is better balanced than most.
