    • 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
      89 89
      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.
