Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1969 Av

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.00 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Absolutely DELICIOUS, but damn this is underpowered. A damn shame this was diluted to 40% ABV. Very old school sherry. Tobacco and cafe latte. Totally chuggable. If this was closer to 50%, this would be an absolute superstar at 95 points.

    N: Firmly sherried whisky that gives off candid aromas of a sweet sugary Toffee Crisp and fig & walnut liqueur. Underlying, it’s toasted > burnt > rubbery before the appearance of a meatiness with only a touch of rancio.
    T: Being all-sherry and oaky, I find this an astringent inward dram that refuses to blossom save for the rather unique sublime and gentile liquid-wax mouthfeel.
    F: We are both in agreement with Serge at this point: ‘,… short and dry’, although with a more succulent heathery-ness and a touch of smoke on the tail. Easter egg chocolate and barley sugar at the death.

    C: Even though it didn’t sit quite right with me [cask-driven quibbles], from the small sample we had, this was excellent. I’d have liked another shot at it.

    Tasted at old and rare 2020. Varnish tobacco leather orange chocolate dark fruits, excellent sherry, the nose is brilliant but feels maybe a bit thin of the palate.
