5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.49 points
- 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
Sweet bright fruits, beeswax, honey, old leather, icing sugar, some mint, light herbal notes
As in the nose, there are also the beautiful notes of sweet apple, beeswax, cereals, some malt, white pepper, some wood
- 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.
