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
- 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.
