  1. maurisso scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I am Italian and I liked it a lot, persistent as clear.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Maltmartin is right about the Italians loving this one, every single bar I was in in Northern Italy had a bottle of 5 year GG and I remember liking it very much.
    This is even lighter than I remember but it has a nice sweetness with a juicy apple note with a little cream thrown in, good whisky considering it is only 5 years old

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Young and easy Glen Grant the Italians loved to drink. I can understand why. Lots of green fruit with a bitter-sweet aftertaste. Terrific summerdram.
    • Nose
      Old and dusty. Mustardy. Grassiness and green apples as well. Aniseed. Later on more leather and some menthol. Even a whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Quite punchy with lots of citrus fruit of lemon and lime. Kiwi fruit. Also barley sugar sweetness. Followed by leafy notes and green olives. Geraniums.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Bitter-sweetness of grapefruit. Liquorice. Gingery. Pine at the end.
