    Glen Grant 39 yo 1972/2012 (54.1%, Malts of Scotland, Angel’s Choice, sherry hogshead, cask # MoS 12006, 78 bottles)
    Colour: gold. Nose: very unusual, starting kind of soapy and paraffiny
    in a good way. Think old Cadum ;-). Then we get more almond oil and
    marzipan, together with some wax polish and certainly quite some oak
    sawdust. Lactones. It’s only after quite a few minutes that more fresh
    fruits come out, papayas, pears, greengages… A funny two-step nose.
    Mouth: rich, with many citrus fruits talking first this time, including
    some orange squash and tonic water that aren’t that far from the soapy
    notes we had in the nose. Campari, bitter oranges and a lot of nutmeg
    then, and I really mean a lot. Finish: long, jammier, with some
    limoncello and something faintly metallic in the aftertaste, similar to
    what we found in the old OB. Peppery aftertaste. Comments: a different
    old Glen Grant, maybe it was reracked in newer wood at some point.
    What’s sure is that it’s excellent whisky, like everything in these
    series. SGP:562 - 87 points.

    Another jammy Glen Grant 1972, an excellent fit for this high-quality Angel's Choice series.
    • Nose
      Typical Glen Grant 72, full of sweet, juicy fruits. Quince marmalade, stewed prunes and apricot pie. Over time this evolves into almond notes and cinnamon. Highlights of mint. A little wax. Lovely.
    • Taste
      Still fruity with a little more oak now. Nice balance of fruity sweetness (raisins, fruit cake) and oaky sourness. Nutmeg and pepper. Oranges. Hints of strawberry jam but they're gone before you know. Fades on mint liqueur.
    • Finish
      Medium long, on oranges and drying spices.
