Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1992

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.22 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 46,50 Euro in April, 2012.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a delicate and easy quaffable dram without any flaws and a nutty and slightly fruity profile.  As the imp stated an unpleasant bitterness I retried a saved sample and found...none.  But I experienced myself that sometimes my tastebuds fooled me on these bitter notes (esp. when you are tired).  I really like this dram despite there is neither any "oompf" nor any highlight - one to sip when you are not in the mood of analysing whisky profiles...

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Do not add water to this it falls apart, dramtically, not a good one my score is getting down graded.

  3. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This whisky was amazingly well made and the bourbon casks used were of exceptional quality. The finish can attest to that. There was also an interesting perfume note that would poke in and out of the nose and taste. A great whisky that's well worth trying.
    • Nose
      Initially, soft fruits, complex vanilla pod, banana cream pie, and straw. After 5 minutes in the glass, honey, and soft baking spices.
    • Taste
      Soft vanilla that builds in complexity with time, soft fruits, and orange zest. 
    • Finish
      Lingering vanilla and cream

  7. lincolnimp scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Its too bitter for me but certainly not unpalatable. MOTR
    • Nose
      White fruits on the nose of pear and melon, wood varnish cleaning fluid but its pleasant definitely.

      There is also some nuttiness and finally flower blossom (cannot say which one but is floral)
    • Taste
      The bitterness is really noticeable at first but then there is a little toffee and again some pear but now with a little lemon.
    • Finish
      Medium length on toffee and lemon

  8. korry78 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Glen Grant 1992/2008 'Cellar Reserve' (46%, OB)  Colour: straw. Nose: the fruits are back! Even more pears than in the official 10, to the point where it smells almost like pure Poire Williams. Then we have a little wood smoke, even hints of bacon, and finally some beautiful whiffs of chamomile and lime teas. No, wait, there are also whiffs of barnyard after the rain… Like sipping some pear spirit in a farm; back to nature! Mouth: pretty much the same, a lot of pear (and the spirit made thereof), a little salt, something kippery that you wouldn’t expect in Glen Grant and notes of bitter herbs liqueur (starting with J…). Full-bodied and with quite some character. Finish: the longest of the three. Pear pie with salted liquorice. Comments: once again, a very ‘natural’ malt whisky with an excellent body. The pear on the nose is spectacular and it’s not the kind of dull pearish notes that one may find in immature whiskies. SGP:541 - 84 points.

  9. Defeatless scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Cork Broke, always keep spare corks!

    Nose: sweet flowery, vanilla, clearly nice balanced medium aged bourbon barrel Glen Grant.

    Taste: Fruit and classic sweet and sour. Some savoury note too. Oak shavings and heather.

    Body: medium, did expect more honestly

    Finish: medium. Same as taste, but more honey and caramel.

    Price: Still very reasonable!

    Presentation: Fairly, not much of the marketing blablabla.

  10. Safran scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

     good result, great about strength (46%). Fresh and fruity, very drinkable. Bit more complex to other Glen Grant of the same age from the distillery. Interesting what more age could do for this one. Some wood and spice would add some more kick.
    • Nose
      Fresh, citrus, bit floral with lots of honey. Violets with greent tea and mint.
    • Taste
      Very fruity, ripe pears, green apples, honey and green tea. Nice hints of fresh cut grass.
    • Finish
      sweet and fresh, yet too short.
