Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1992 SMWS 9.151

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.54 points

  1. rottendon scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very nice bourbon barrel, powerful in the aromas, fairly straight forward, little depth, but good in balance.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Look, a fine example of how Glen Grant has to have a certain age to look mature. For 25 years I would not have come in life!

      Immediately after pouring vanilla full and some grass, after just a few seconds it turns around, grass is full and some vanilla. Floral notes, a touch of lemon zest and then fresh, ripe pears come on. Some time later, there is initially a very pleasant fruit acid over everything, including cream caramel, the grass is still present, but discreetly remains in the background, to storm again immediately when moving forward. Heat intensifies the pear enormously, then the vanilla, pear compote with vanilla sauce and an idea of grass strewn over it.
    • Taste

      First, vanilla again, then the pears, ripe and juicy, comes back behind, together with the alcohol, which is now kicking mighty, the grass. The mouthfeel is creamy. In the second sip there is also a pleasant acidity from the beginning, which makes the pears look even fresher.
    • Finish
      87 87
      In the finish, it gets sweeter again, the grass disappears slowly, while the creamy vanilla lasts much longer. He also warms up for a long time. Overall, the finish is not even so short. But then suddenly disappeared without a trace.

  3. just 2thetop scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Nose: Sweet malt, wood shavings
    Taste: Bright ripe fruit, oak
    Finish: Long, drying, oak
    After min. 30 min with a few drops of water becomes more complex, oilier and better integrated - worth the wait!

  8. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes:

    The nose revealed notes of honey, cloves, pot pourri, bung cloth, lemon barley water, darjeeling tea, mushroom powder and glossy magazines. Still vibrant for its age noted the panel. Water gives it a texture of vintage velvet with notes of dark chocolate, maraschino cherry juice, caraway, an old hay loft, pink pepper and gooseberry. The palate displayed vanilla, dried mango chunks and hobnob biscuits with pollen, olive oil, earthen floors and boot polish. A delicate mineral and wax aspect shyly hiding in the shadows. Water reveals further notes of tablet, mint, chalk, lemon blossom and honeycomb. A highly drinkable dram we thought!
