    unheard of multi-layered fruit bomb: especially banana, lime, milk chocolate, slightly grassy. But the malt has its share. Wonderful!

  4. Sonett scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla, light fruits, wax and a light malty touch of hay and grain
    • Taste
      Enters sweet with a taste of malt and hay followed by increasing peppery spices with honey
    • Finish
      Medium long dominated by fading spices and a very end in the sign of dry oak

  5. aby scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    nice whisky with raspberry in the nose, some spices and wood

    taste: mango, bananas, bit spicy and oak

  6. alectron scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    funnily this feels quite anesthetic on the tongue right away after a few small sips despite the low alc.
    • Nose
      First of: sweet & malty w red fruits ( strawberries & raspberries), icing sugar, creamy vanilla pudding, waxy, dusty, (89)
      A bit later: a lot more waxyness now, also with some honeycomb notes, slightly more fruit & less dusty, (91)
    • Taste
      cool tongue-feel to it, beeswax, malt sweetness, some fruits but somewhat hard to grasp here (plums, red grapes, passion fruit), couverture,  tongue coating oily/waxy-ness (91)
    • Finish
      utterly pleasant fade out with echoes of honey, honeycomb wax, vanilla pods, strawberries, mango and some couverture/chocolate (white & milk) swaying back & forth. (93)
      At the very end a bit much oak-dryness for me (88).

    On the nose alone, I would easily rate this a 90, but the oak gets too
    smug on the palate, making him dive under that score. Having said that, this is
    one helluva Glen Grant.
    • Nose
      As we have come to expect from Glen Grant, the nose is very fruity,
      almost exotic: orange, strawberry, melon, cherry, raspberry. The last fruit is
      the most prominent. Very sweet and slightly floral. Softly, but pleasantly
      spiced with some allspice and nutmeg. After a bit of hand warmth, it reveals
      polishing wax and leather. An abundance of honey. Very nice development. A nose
      that keeps me occupied for more than fifteen minutes.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it indeed proves to be a fruity whisky. All fruits from
      the nose return (with a few extra in the mix like peaches), but the spices and
      oak speak much louder now. Pepper and ginger and a slightly bitter twist from
      the wood.
    • Finish
      The finish is drying, reasonably long and very spicy.

    Thanks for the sample guys.
    • Nose
      Nose is fruity, clean, sweet with hints of tangerine, lemon zest, meadowlands, grass, green grapes and plums. It is definitely very pleasant and elegant. In other words the best fruity flavors Speyside could offer to Speyside whisky lovers.
    • Taste
      Mouth is smooth and reflects the taste. In addition to fruits and fruity sweetness you will find oak, some spiciness and grapy dryness. It is a very good shot, no doubt about it.
    • Finish
      Medium long, fruits slowly go away and becomes more oaky and dry.

  10. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The nose is really the main attraction here, too bad the oak gets rather loud towards the finish. A perfect example of raspberry flavours in whisky.
    • Nose
      Plenty of red fruits: cherries and plums but especially raspberries. A slightly floral (feminine) kind of fruits. Grenadine. Marshmallows. Indeed pink macarons as they say in the official notes. Some oak and spices as well.
    • Taste
      Very fruity again (raspberries, banana, a little kirsch) but the wood brings a certain sourness now (orange skin?). Hint of liquorice and pepper. Nutmeg. A few waxy notes towards the end.
    • Finish
      Long, but drier, less thick and more oaky than the best 1972 Glen Grants.
