  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2018] I just recently added Glen Grant to my list of top distilleries to follow up on new releases because of a really flabbergasting dram (WB id 117942) so I have to check this new Cadenhead bottling, come hell or high water...

    ...and this is neither hell nor high water but rather a further dram edition by the whisky angels themselves. I really do like it and it reminds me a little on the upcoming christmas time with all its sweet, dried fruits and spicy flavours. No doubt, this is worth its bucks (I paid 125 Euro for a bottle)...
    • Nose
      91 91
      The colour is deep gold and the nose offers an old style Glen Grant profile of delicious fruits and honeys - exactly what this distillery is famous for. It is not the most complex one but for sure very adorable (if you like ripe fruits and honeys - anyone out there who does not?). No off-note and all very balanced, this is Glen Grant as I know (and love) it...
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste is again fruity-honey sweet but with stronger spicy (peppers, chili) flavours than was the nose. After some chewing nice raspberry marmelade notes appear that are tasty (I adore raspberries) and after that I detect hints of sultanas (which reminds me of "Dresdner Weihnachtsstollen", a famous German christmas cake). Water is not needed.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with a minor peppery touch that is rather welcomed after the very sweet nose. The finish is of medium length and adds some fresh impressions of green apples (which is really unusual because such flavours tend to apppear first and not last in whiskies). No distracting moments during the finish except a minor drying (papers) feeling.

    • Nose
      90 90
      Not common, very intriguing: watercolour, acetone, pastel colours
    • Taste
      89 89
      Herbal liqueur distilled more times. Compact
    • Finish
      90 90
      Strong and long. Balanced
