  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=179 Color: copper Nose: Also here rather a fresh and young at heart nose. At first very pungent and with a lot of minerality, orange, honey, red fruits, wax and leather as well as floral aromas of rose scent. Taste: Sliced ​​juicy oranges, spicy and fresh. Mint again, but this time with pronounced vanilla. Lots of salt, hot pepper, nutmeg and wood to finish. Finish: Very long - and also predominantly fresh, lots of salt, mint, eucalyptus, spicy chili and vanilla cream. Fruity mix with strong oak and espresso notes. Remark: In the finish, the long cask storage is fully effective! 90 points N: 91P / G: 90P / F: 88P

    Glen Grant 1972-2013, 40 years, 54.8% alc.
    Bottler: Finest Whisky
    Removal: sherry barrel
    Region: Speyside, Scotland Nose: Intrusive sweet, with ripe berries, a lot of honey and some maple syrup. Beeswax, candied apple and raisins in cereal. Very harmonious and convincing.

    Palate: Red fruits, creamy honey and some nuts. Toasted malt, apple compote and some spices, as well as wood, cinnamon, cedar and oak.

    Finish: Very long, here comes the age wonderful to wear. Fruity and dry. Dark berries, cherries, dried oranges and coffee beans. Oak, pepper and some cocoa.

    Conclusion: Wow - unfortunately, due to its limited number as good as not available (42 bottles). 92/100 points (tasted 2015)
    Thank you "deep sea duck" for the photo!

    Like a mixture of the legendary GG 1972 from TSMoS (#2380) and the JWWW OTL 1975; what means, that it has the lovely fruity, cognacy, mid-dark-sherry notes of the TSMoS combined with the strong nutty notes of the JWWW-OTL, especially walnuts here. A quite expressive nose and a very long ending. Marvelous 1972 Glen Grant.
