Whisky reviews for Glen Grant 1969 SMS

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A grand Glen Grant, by any standard. Thanks, Foamy.
    • Nose
      Oh, what a mighty sherry nose! The fresh Glen Grant (apples, pears) is completely wrapped in rum raisins, fresh figs, some rhubarb and coffee. Even a slice of brown bread. Becomes sweeter as you leave it. Violets (the purple candy, not the flower!), eucalyptus. Tangerines and raspberry marmalade. This is wonderful.
    • Taste
      The attack is powerful with loads of cinnamon and nutmeg. Wonderful balance between the sherry notes on the one hand, which now also boasts dark chocolate, and the fresh white fruit that will not be subdued on the other. Perfectly quaffable, despite the high ABV.
    • Finish
      On the finish, the tannins emerge that make it somewhat drying, but it is by no means a party pooper.

    Colour:
    Mahogany / old oak
    Nose:
    Dark sherry greetings at its finest! In addition, smoke, plum jam, black elderberry, Amarena cherries - salty and sparkling underlaid and with a more than fitting flavor. Despite the color, the wood is only subtly present, but with sweet cuts of honey, caramel, underlaid vanilla and dark cigar tobacco, as well as upcoming fruit aromas - excellent and harmonious down to the smallest detail!
    Taste:
    Spicy, spicy and fruity - very waxy fat and immediately with a present dark fruit. Then the wood strikes powerfully! Dry leather, heavy wood notes, smoky spice, fresh herbs and a minty freshness appear. However, the wood dominates and covers all other flavors - a bit of a shame, but still great.
    Finish:
    Long - dry and very wood laden. The fruit can only be found underground. Leather, mocha, liquorice, vanilla and fading with bitter teen notes.
    Comment:
    The taste starts with a good 93P!
