  1. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Simple enough, a quality mole, sparse, light, but boring.
    • Nose
      Non-bright, fruit-berry, green apples, mineral tones, not spirtuzen.
    • Taste
      Sour-sweet, fruity, spices, lemon peel, light oak bitterness, creamy tones, rather monotonous and simple.
    • Finish
      Long, sweetish pepper, with light sourness from green apples.

  2. domani scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Glen Grant is really great. The whisky literally melts on the tongue like a (chocolate) candy and the daisy effect is excellent - 19.05.2017
    • Nose
      Apple, kiwi, green pear, freshly cut ginger, watermelon, the maltiness does not penetrate as well as expected, skin of chestnuts, clover, floral, buttercups, daisies
    • Taste
      Only sweet and oily, becomes over time strong and slightly peppery and dry, spicy, the oak barrel pushes a little bit and provides bitterness but at the end remains a slightly spicy honey note

  3. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful and fresh malt that makes a lot of fun in the summer months. Nicely structured and juicy!

      The color shows pale gold, the windows let hope for a beautiful body. The first crawl in lemon, hay, herbs, some banana and a beautiful blossom honey note. Mint comes through and makes the whisky look very fresh. Green apples and a little wax.

      Vanilla sweetness, fruity, cereal notes, some mint, oily and full-bodied. Fresh lemon notes and green apples.
    • Finish

      A medium-length finish.

    N: Fruity, winey, green apples
    P: Quite crisp. A little tangy. Shades of Balblair. Some cream comes through
    F: V clean. Short.

    Decent but a little too light for my palette these days

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Solid malt. Do his job well.

    On fruits are apple and pear represented. In addition malty notes and then especially nuts.

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Apparent buttery note with whiff of tropical fruit. Musky, grassy and
    drift of floral. Soft nature. Not a dram to wow, but amiable and

    Palate:- Greasy mouthfeel. Interestingly, abundant
    of fruit essences minus the sweetness. Fruity but non sweet - unique.
    Quite acidity and sharp on the other hand, make this a truly complex
    dram and each sip a new discovery. Good body and weight.

    Finish:- Sharp citrus finish. Medium length with ginger pungency. Dry.

    An underrated dram.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
