Glen Grant 1992-2013, 20 years, 50.4%
Extension: Bourbon barrel
Region: Speyside, Scotland
Nose: Beeswax and honey in the first impression, followed by juicy peach flavors, also a little pear. Very appetizing! This is followed by a light mint note and other kitchen herbs, next to the oak is present with its slightly tingling spice. Caramel and mild vanilla round off.
Palate: Fruity, sweet and with many apples. In addition, pear and peach, some dried apricot, a trace of spices (including nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon). Nevertheless, only slightly spicy, almost creamy with the fruits.
Finish: Long and malty, significantly more spice, the fruit is displaced. Nuts appear next to the malt.
Conclusion: A nice interplay, not unlike the signatory barrels from the year 92.
