    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Glen Grant 10 yo 1967/1978 (86.8 US proof, Averys for Corti Bros., San Francisco)  Ten years in wood and almost forty years in glass, we have high hopes, very high hopes… Colour: mahogany. Nose: old brandy de Jerez! Well, that won’t last, because there’s an admirable smokiness arising, some tar, wee touches of natural rubber, bags of hot roasted chestnuts, and this amazing ‘bouillony’ side that can be so stunning in the best sherried whiskies. Perfect umami. Mouth: very high class, not unlike the best G&Ms (some Book of Kells, for example). Perfect chocolate, a touch of copper, Spanish ham, walnuts and chestnuts, hints of Seville oranges, drops of crème de menthe, quite some liquorice, a little tar, barbecued/caramelised beef, chocolate sauce (Mexican mole)… All that at a perfect strength. Finish: quite long, superbly chocolaty, well in the style of the best old very sherried Macallans from the better days. Comments: just totally and plainly amazing. SGP:452 - 93 points.
