    Glen Grant 10 years, original bottling from the 80s, 43 alc.
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    This bottling dates back to the 80s and has only been found in auction houses or very rarely in specialist shops for a number of years.

    Nose: Apples and peaches, first very light, after a short time in the glass, the flavors concentrate. In addition, something very ripe banana and some cellar moisture, which is very pleasant. Reminiscent of the pantry of an old inn, where just a lot of fruit lies.
    Damp wood, behind the grain. Very filigree and round.

    Palate: First fruit muesli, then cornflakes. At first a sweet which then turns into bitter (charred) cereal notes. Dry and slightly smoky towards the end.

    Finish: Long and dry, with a slightly smoky finish and a nice spice.

    Conclusion: Horny part, the quality of this single malts is really convincing. As standard bottling at that time intended for a mass market, the bottling in relevant auction portals is still available.

    Obviously I have no idea what this tasted like when it was released, but the difference with the current bottlings is significant. So what have we learned today? Get a bottle of Glen Grant 10 Year Old for 25 EUR and put it in the cupboard for 30 years. Do it now!
    • Nose
      This nose has the traditional hallmarks (green apples and juicy pears), but also a slight old bottle effect. As if it has been poured from a can. But it is not disturbing in the least. Au contraire. More grains than the more recent bottling. Iced tea.
    • Taste
      The attack is light, malty (beer) and sweet. Yellow apples, iced tea again and a big bowl of breakfast cereals. Starts mild on the spices, but those grow midpalate. Woodsmoke offers a little depth.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and spicy with a drying death.
