    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 191 bottles from cask 10197
    Proprietary bottlings of Glen Grant come from much refilled casks and are frankly somewhat anaemic, which is a shame: it’s a Top Class malt. This one has been drawn from a first-fill ex-Burbon barrel and is a gorgeous polished chestnut hue, like a fresh conker. The beading is excellent. Butterscotch, vanilla toffee, Walls ice cream (melted), with an increasing jammy aroma: we summed it up as ‘raspberry ripple’ ice cream. The vanilla ice cream comes through in the taste (unreduced), with milk chocolate and cocnut in the aftertaste (the green Quality Street sweeties!). Water develops estery, Speyside notes, with hints of coconut and orange zest. The texture (reduced) is soft, and the taste a nice balance of sweet and sour, with coconut returning in the aftertaste.
