  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Glen grant very clear, we are clearly not on a first-fill sherry.
    Very easy to drink, especially 40%. We are from beginning to end on the delicacy.
    A superb daily dram.
    • Nose
      Very delicate. Nice presence for 40%. Like what the years serve.
      Light dust, white fruit (apple, pear skin), pepper, wax, pineapple and white peach with syrup.
      Slightly mineral, citrus, old book.
    • Taste
      In the mouth we remain on the delicacy but the whisky does not collapse.
      Citrus (lemon, mandarin), white flower, green apple, pear, pineapple.
      Pepper is always present as well as the thin layer of dust.
    • Finish
      Sweet finish on fruits (apple, peach, pineapple) and pepper.

    Nice balance with good power behind it, especially the juicy oak and malt between the intense fruit is fun.

    Nose on tangerine, orange, some curry, and a dusty aspect. In the mouth, it is very round, with precious wood, citrus fruits, a little honey. The complexity of the nose is superb but we remain a little over our hunger in the mouth

    varnish, honey, orchard fruits, white pepper, toffee, quite drinkable

  6. penumbra scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It is very different from Longmorn and Strathisla. By making myself very similar to Grankunchi and Taishilong to open the skill points of the super long Shirley barrel Chen, but the question is, why do n’t I use less money? Do you want to drink Shirley barrels of lower ages, to serve the old princes from the Cognac?
    • Nose
      This is the first time I drank the Grand Crown, and the comparison with OB products is impossible to talk about, but there is a kind of old-fashioned Shirley that is a family. The flavor does not feel the weakness of the 40% alcohol level at all. It is the sweet-scented osmanthus cake made by the honey osmanthus in the mid-autumn festival. It is the icing filled in the cake shop. Although it is old, there must be some vague wooden spices, but compared to the 40+ old age, it can make people like Chen Zhan, Xiao Xiao Su Su, hearty and clean, combined with the color of the liquor, three times and The above refilling of Shirley barrels is probably not enough to run. Under the cover of honey and old book covers, it is still possible to distinguish very pleasing orange peels, pineapples and some powdery and greasy flowers.
    • Taste
      Sweet and sour, just like VSOP, what's important about the body? It's done with good drinks, citrus, grapes, fruit baskets. The only flaw is that there is a small amount of sharp woody spice or pepper mixed in it, which is not heavy. It is acceptable for any other whisky, and it can even be called the selling point of Talisker, but you Fatty house happy water come up with this thing is more people make fun.

      Weak, thin oil, sweeter, sour taste, no astringency, no bitter base.
    • Finish
      For a long time, honey, sweetness and bitterness, and fruit are mixed with water one to twenty.
