C: There is a fair balance between wood and spirit although ideally id still like some more oak time, i reckon the spirit can easily take it. Its definitely the best Girvan ive tried [which isn’t saying a great deal], and one which brought a few ‘dad noises’. For a distillery giant that produces 15 million litres of whisky per year primarily for William Grants’ blends, this appears to come across as a carefully chosen presentation and leaves me wondering whether the casks used for this 28yo were always destined for single grain bottlings?
Final word - a good grain whisky but stupidly overpriced at £275 [Sept ’14] and not worth the money.
Scores a B-
