Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1957 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.60 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Precisely what to expect from a Glen Grant of the 1950's; delicate fruitiness in a very well balanced way. Excellent!
    • Nose
      Gentle fruitiness of raspberries, apricots and ripe strawberries. But also hints of acacia honey. Some eucalyptus intermingled with cigar boxes. Old library books. Typical old-skool soft sherry notes at the background. This is very nice.
    • Taste
      Now more on juicy prunes and plums. Apple compote. Figs and dates. Cranberries. Followed by lovely grapefruit bitter-sweetness. Later on touch of roasted chestnuts and some oaky notes. Spices of cinnamon and a little clove as well.
    • Finish
      Medium with a tad of dryness. Ginger. Hints of pine and leather at the end.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    The definition of quaffable, but that would be a waste, wouldn't it? This is a contemplative dram, to be drank at a contemplative time, by a contemplative gentleman like me ;)
    • Nose
      The most elegant sherry. Very fresh. Juicy. Prunes. Raisins. Purple grape (juice, soda, and wine, altogether!) Ganache and a bit of mint.
    • Taste
      What's not to like? It's pure magic. Not too much oak at all despite 44 years in wood. Lovely sherry. Black tea. Old leather. Very moreish, but I'm not sure if it's due to the weak ABV and that makes me want to drink a lot of it.
    • Finish
      At 40% ABV, I'm not expecting the world. At the end of the palate, there is this extra fruitiness that jumps back at you.
