Older, independently bottled Glen Grants can be of exceptional quality after having slept in oak barrels for a few decades. This 10-year-old expression, however, is a very simple and undemanding Speyside Single Malt. The aroma is understated, sweet and fruity with hints of pears, nuts and fresh hay. Spicy, young and spirity in the arrival, there are notes of lemon juice, red currants and honey before dry refill cask bitterness takes over. Wood tannins and faint vanilla characterize the rather short finish. A cheap beginners whisky without any complexity.
