lincolnimp gave this whisky 92 points

I agree with Bxpress that this is underpowered and 46-48% it would have surely got to 95 points.

Lovely creamy mouthfeel, I love it.

These old G&M Glen Grants offer some of the nest quality/price aged whisky for 40 + years.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Sweet tobacco nose, smells like a Spanish Gold confectionary tobacco you used to get in the 70`s. Salted caramel, a little plum, digestive biscuit


Taste

Lovely mouthfeel, so creamy and very delicate, hints of chocolate, slight Mocha, very faint ginger, light fruit cake.

Finish

Not to long but sweet & smooth.

Very good malt! But only 40% alcohol strength... A cask strength version would be fantastic!

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Horse, glue , fresh paint. Gets then spicy with a little bit of cinnamon. Old furniture and the polish. Raisins and pepper. Chocolate and quite bit of ham. A smell of gasoline interestingly enough. Wet tobacco.

Taste

This is quite dense for its low ABV and even oily,  with some heavy yet mild Sherry. The tobacco again, the raisins follow. Mint and some baked apple in the background. Farmy/muddy even which is very good. Then it becomes increasingly herbal underlined by caramel. Slightly mushroomy after a few sips(amazing). I'll stop here but i could go on for an hour.

Finish

Medium long and oily. Fading away slowly and gently on baked apple, caramel and salty butter.

Comments

sample.

If i had to describe "old Whisky" to someone this one would be it. Amazing despite the 40%.
