Lots of alcohol in the scent, bit a bit - but the banter stops there - maybe I should have been a bit more patient. Full of citrus scent, whole haystacks full of spring, light-footed, hops and pleasantly, this whisky from the Blenders glass pops into my nose. Caramel, spices, sweet tobacco, it can't be beat. Then fruit; dried apricots, melon, pineapple.
Come on, let's take a sip. Pepper at the 50.8%. Not as sweet at all as I expected, spices predominate. Little cocoa now. In the aftertaste there is some smoke burnt wood more than peat, very refined. Glen Grant had a somewhat cheap-blend appearance, possibly due to the Grant's whisky and the cheap and not very good entry-level version that this brand has. This, however, is different cake. This is finest Scottish Single Malt.
