Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1992 SMS
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.67 points
- Color: Yellow Gold
I like it better than the 20 years + - Alternatives that Signatory has on offer (te), tastes older and a little oldstylig.
Floral, bread, waxy, and surprisingly old. Hot coffee, oak wood. With water: Almost a little smoky. Ripe pear, more wax.
With water: Oily, again with a good amount of wax, sourdough, lilac, malt, brown bread.
Long, malt, straw, light smoke.
- Straight - beautiful fruity and balanced malt. Maybe you could interpret this as boring - I think it's just fine.
Initially rather light and with a lot of fruit: pear, pineapple, papaya and vanilla. Over time, beautiful oak tones mix with it. After a long time (about 30 minutes) covered in the glass, malt is added. Some water attracts the fruity aromas even more clearly.
Strong on the tongue, sweetness of bright fruits and light honey, vanilla. Water also brings out the fruit more clearly here.
Medium long, still nice fruity, discreet seasoning from the barrel - very pleasantly balanced.

Colour: pale gold. Nose: typical modern Glen Grant with bags and bags
of apples and a few pears, then gooseberries, then peaches, all that
being covered with a little barley water and sugarcane syrup. Very
average malt whisky, in the best sense of the word ‘average’. With
water: more of all that with an added freshness. How could anyone be
against this? Whiffs of dough and flowers. Mouth (neat): sweet, big,
very orchardy again, and punchy as well. Young calvados plus apple and
pear juice, some barley syrup and some honey. It's simple, but it's
perfect. Maybe a hint of Irishness, pure pot still style. With water:
perfect sweet maltiness. Some cask! Finish: not too long but clean,
fruity, sweet, and perfectly balanced. Comments: a tad more complexity
could have made this baby fetch 90 in my little book. Great spirit. SGP:541 - 88 points.
