  4. Luigisim scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Great dram, very similar to cognac for his intensity and sweetness.

    However, the cask overwhelmed the spirit

    Glen Grant 1958-2013, 54 years, 40% alc. G & M Glen Grant 1958-2013, 54 years, 40% alc.
    Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail
    Expansion: sherry casks
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Nose: sweet sherry flavors and lots of wood. Almond marzipan, caramel and raisins. Dark fruits, old leather and dried apricots. Behind it a little fresher fruit: apples and peaches, along with toffee. In addition, a lot of chocolate and nougat, cigar box and cedar wood. Very complex.

    Palate: Sweet dark berries, dark coffee, cinnamon and many other spices. Wood, slightly dry cedar and again sweet oak, nuts and malt. A little black tea, mocha and again the leather. Wonderful!

    Finish: long and dry, with an emphasis on tobacco, wood and chocolate.

    Conclusion: I love the part, which is so great!
    95/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 750 €)
