N: This shows serious intent and asks for one’s full attention. I nose Glen Grant - an oily-fluffy malt with honey-wood. The oak serves the grain as well as the best of the standard 10yo bottlings do.
T: Strong but not over-dominant sour-sweet, provides a challenging complex opening. Long travel with consistence and endurance and a consolidated, pureed body - delicious.
F: Fluffy-oily-waxy-honeyed and robust grain led finish, wrapped in supportive oak.
C: Good Glen Grant with fine form for a 20yo. The price at TWE is 25% higher than buying from ‘The Single Cask’ direct? [link] - you decide!
Scores a B
