  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 167 bottles from cask 10184
    Glen Grant was one of the earliest to be made widely available as a single. Today it is usually found as a pale 10YO. Not this one. It is drawn from a first-fill, ex-bourbon Hogshead and has the colour of old polished mahogany. The nose is prickly and takes a while to yield its secrets: first red wine vinegar, then glacé cherries, glacé kumquats and angelica root, and finally vanilla sponge. Water opens it considerably: fragrant jasmine tea, fondant sweets, and still some glace fruits (now greengages?). The fruits come through delectably – very sweet, but vivacious and even peppery. Creamy but light in the mouth with a long, sweet finish.
