Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1995 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.82 points

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Overall, a beautiful Glen Grant, fine and calm. The alcohol is super integrated, dangerously easy to drink. Easy to drink without being bored, only the surprisingly low fruitiness in taste compared to the nose and the somewhat unspectacular finish prevent an even higher rating.
    • Nose
      90 90
      sweet; yellow fruits; clear note of apples; delicate herbs; a hint of vanilla; Teignote; fresh spicy wood notes in the background; Alcohol wonderfully integrated
    • Taste
      88 88
      soft; intensely sweet; Herbal honey; delicate notes of yellow fruit - much less pronounced than in the nose; in the background, a wonderfully integrated, tart, tangy oak flavor resonates with it
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium; slightly tingling, delicately tart spice from the wood; a hint of sweetness with yellow fruits

    • Nose
      90 90
      In the nose you can feel unbelievably intense yellow and green fruits right at the beginning. The apple note evolves clearly to candied apple. Overall, very fine and balanced. A mini herbal note mixes a little later with intense sweetness of biscuits and dough with some vanilla and cereal notes. Alcohol is really very delicate.
    • Taste

      In terms of taste, I personally notice a considerable depth, so "dark" I would not have expected the Glen Grant. Beautiful heather honey with some herbs. Clearly there is a sweetness in the foreground, the alcohol remains super restrained. The notes of dough are much clearer in the taste and the fruit component hides a bit. This is refreshed only by smelling again. Due to the pleasant age of 23 years, a finely spicy note of wood is towards the end. This is noticeable with a little dryness on the palate, but also very fine and not intrusive.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Due to its overall subtlety, I would describe the finish as appropriate, also here is a sweet touch back. It will develop recognizable again a little yellow fruits. But I would call the departure as medium.
