Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: The subtlest hint of medium roast Kenyan coffee and intertwines beautifully with the thick sherry.
Palate: Glorious array of sweet, demerara-style toffee sugars. Silky sherry and busy peppers, panning out into a raging sea of malty complexity.
Finish: Soft yet enormously long and playful.
Comment: The best Glen Grant of the last 20 years? Unquestionably. Near prefect stuff to the old school.
9.3
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peaty. I could almost smell the burn that flows through the distillery garden.
Palate: Syrupy. Surprisingly big and malty. Nutty. Dry toffee. A hint of liquorice. Rooty. Slight astringency.
Finish: Firm, peaty.
Comment: Glen Grant is a delicate whisky and does not always benefit from long maturation. This bottling is on the cusp. The distillery character can still be discerned, but only just.
