    Grassy, spritzy, thin, sweet (artificial sugar, not the fruity kind)... it's drinkable, but not my thing.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Glen Grant 1990/2015 (56.6%, Archives, hogshead, cask #15230, 231 bottles)  Colour: light gold. Nose: a sharper, less vanilla-ed one, but it’s still easy and fruity malt whisky. Many tined fruits, such as peaches, pears, apricots, perhaps even bananas, covered with a light honey-and-vanilla sauce and a little barley water. Plain easiness, despite the strength. With water: caramelised Gueuze and tarte tatin. Mouth (neat): classic fruity Speysider, with pears and apples and white cherries (there) and a little honey. Plus a little bubblegum and sweet hoppy beer, IPA-style. With water: caramel, caramelised peanuts, apple pie. Finish: medium, maltier, with a little citrus, which is good. Comments: modern style, not a very wide and complex profile, and this might even be the ‘simplest’ kind of expression of malt whisky, but it’s very good indeed. What’s more, it swims very well. Average in the better sense of that word. SGP:551 - 84 points.

    Single whiskybase sample.
    • Nose
      Fragrant - old fashioned barber shop - shaving cream. Vanilla. Buttery. A little citrus. A bit woody.
    • Taste
      Buttery, creamy, custard and stewed apples. Quite spicy too. Nice amount of oak.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Cooked fruit. Hard boiled lollies. Some bubblegum.
