- Wood water in a nutshell.
- Tried it at TMA Vol.5, great starter. Full of sherry goodness, and full oakiness. Can't get better at this price.
Rather "naked", no overpowering cask influence. Apple sauce, pear, lychee, a nice minierality, citrus and vanilla.
Quite a kick, with pepper. Then: vanilla, buttered cookies (Dutch "boterkoek"), lychee, yellow fruit.
Long and fruity.
- N- Unusual umami and salts that are not so Glen Grant-y, but well integrated with the compote of warm apple pie, pepper and mellow green herbs. Soothing quality bouquet of seasoned rattan couch, as well drift of white chocolate with cookies chips. Rustiness developed with dried floral notes at the tail.
P- Delicate and smooth 100°, full body and mellow. Buttery dried fruits, nutty, coated with even more obvious saltiness.F- Long, silky and elegant, with imposing presence of firm boiled spices, sweet herbs and dried fruits. Right touch of wood phenol dryness. Savoury saltiness remains on aftertaste. Interesting Glen Grant.
- Tasted at Whisky in Leiden 2017
Wonderfully full with so many flavours. A real delight this in trully is.
A high strength Glen Grant 15yo bottled by Gordon & Macphail sometime in the 1970s.
- An excellent mole, I do not know at what time it was released, but it is something clearly in the old style, the fragrance is magnificent, reminiscent of the blends of 40-70, very deep and complex; the taste / finish is dedicated to the sherry barrel, most likely Oloroso, very strictly and dryly; wonderful work with the fortress, pitch at altitude, super.

Full body. Salty impact followed by orange, lemon, wax, dried peach, raisin and honey. Spiced with anise, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and peppermint.
