Whisky reviews for Glen Grant 1952 GM

5 users have left 5 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 93.00 points.

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The best these two types of casks have to offer, I’d say. Around 2.400 EUR. Several years ago, this was awarded by Jim Murray… one of the few times that Jim and I agree. You would be forgiven for calling this Glen Grant… Glen Grand!
    • Nose
      It is surprisingly fresh and bright with light sherry notes in the guise of sultanas and Reine Claude plums on the one hand, but also some fresh coconut and white fruit on the other. It has some resin, which works perfectly. Freshly polished hardwood floor, some thyme and freshly cut grass. Add some overripe banana and you have a nose that nears perfection.
    • Taste
      I would not have minded a bit more body. It’s a bit light. But taste wise, this is a solid malt. A handful of nuts, butterscotch and something that reminds me of the better Cognac. Some earthy notes and woodsmoke give it that old school touch that I have learned to appreciate in older Glen Grant.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long with hints of white fruit, vanilla and allspice.
