Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 16-year-old
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.59 points
- Fruity, sweet, harmonious. A nice summer whisky.
Fresh baked oak with sugar crust, hazelnut flour, malt, wood dust, tree juice, freshly peeled branches, freshly cut wood, well integrated vanilla, shredded dough, strong "green juicy" oak spices - tannins, pleasantly spicy spicy - very fresh fragrant with delicate mint, creamy
fresh juices - slightly astringent, maple syrup, grapefruit skin, voluminous, tingly, crispy, while chewing also typical Speyside lemon - very spicy and intense for its alcohol content - definitely not too thin
- 87/100. A representative of the meadow-honey fraction, which looks older than 16. Dark cask spice, yellow, fermented fruit ... the nose scores particularly great and I would be worth 89 points, taste and finish can maintain the level quite well, but fall off a bit. In the key, the alcohol is a bit too present, because I would like to have the great flavors in the foreground. But is moaning at a high level.
immediately wonderfully sweet fruity, vanilla, honey, and in the background a spicy, dry oak with delicate tannins and dark chocolate. Then yellow apples melt with vanilla, meadow honey and a gentle summer floral note in the nose, while he breathes. Great. A very soft anise note. It then becomes darker, spicier, the honey becomes spicy wax, the apples are overripe and easily fermented and nutmeg causes a tingling sensation. Physalis.
needs a time. Then the alcohol reacts first, and then honey, vanilla, meadow herbs. Second sip as expected more insightful. Honey and wax in bulk, with yellow fruits, also slightly reaching into the exotic, and a hint of toffee. Hmm. Creamy, sour, sparkling, slightly sweet and also alcohol noticeable.
spicy oak. Sparkling. Flower nectar, wax and the yellow dark fruits that begin to ferment, and toffee with spicy oak in the background.
- Glen Grant 16 years old, original bottling, 43% alc. Maturation: Predominantly bourbon barrels, small portion of sherry casks Region: Speyside, Scotland Nose: apples, kiwis and beeswax. Roast almonds and sweet chestnuts, a little malt. Well integrated in a fresh vanilla clay. Palate: The whisky is very soft and fruity, then becomes stronger and builds up, even really dry to the end. With spices, fruit salad and nuts, very complex. Finish: Long and fruity, dry, a bit earthy. Slightly spicy oak wood influence. Conclusion: nice age, nice value for money. I have him constantly at home. 88/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 40 €)
- Enriched with a certain spice, rounded off by the use of the finest oak barrels, everything elated as the high baroque era. Flawless drop from Speyside.
Apples, pears and mint dance in a pink rococo cloud.
All this is easily rounded off by nectar.
Now strong start of apples, pears, apricots, peaches, now also a little vanilla, chewed apple seeds. Tastes like a fruit consecration, made by a shrewd housewife.
