  2. DocF scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Color: Yellow Gold

    I like it better than the 20 years + - Alternatives that Signatory has on offer (te), tastes older and a little oldstylig.
    • Nose
      Floral, bread, waxy, and surprisingly old. Hot coffee, oak wood. With water: Almost a little smoky. Ripe pear, more wax.
    • Taste
      With water: Oily, again with a good amount of wax, sourdough, lilac, malt, brown bread.
    • Finish
      Long, malt, straw, light smoke.

  3. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Straight - beautiful fruity and balanced malt. Maybe you could interpret this as boring - I think it's just fine.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Strong on the tongue, sweetness of bright fruits and light honey, vanilla. Water also brings out the fruit more clearly here.
    • Finish
      Medium long, still nice fruity, discreet seasoning from the barrel - very pleasantly balanced.

    Jim Murray gave this 94 points in the 2015 Whisky Bible. Serge from Whiskyfun gave it 88 points and wrote:Glen Grant 22 yo 1992/2014 (57.8%, The Single Malts of Scotland, bourbon, cask #35936, 222 bottles)
    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.
