    ***
    ????: sweet Tokaj wine
    ????: sweet, even very sugary, like a typical ex-bourbon, there is light vegetable, spicy, and that's it. The nose does not have much to show, after a while it opens with shampoo and soap
    ????: sweet, smooth, extremely delicate, quickly softens but stays on the tongue for a long time, unfortunately a bit of alcohol ech: /
    ????: moderate, sweet,
    *
    Feeling that this is not a young whisky, already arranged, delicate, fruity, quite ok, it's a pity that it is not much to show. Although after a while I would give 0.5-1 more for exceptional delicacy. The sherry barrel had to be the nth refill that makes an impression ex-bourbon, not ex-sherry.

    Wow this is a very good Glen Grant release by The Maltman. I only tasted their Benrinnes before, which is also excellent.

      The nose starts it all off in a great way. Delicious. A fruit-basket with apples up front.
    • Taste
      89 89
      That good that I dare not add any drops of water. Full body sweetness with apples all over the place.
    • Finish
      87 87
      After the first sips the finish was not that long, but strange enough after leaving it in the glass a bit loner, the finish gets longer as well. First sweet but getting slightly bitter in the very end.

    A very good whisky. Worth the €160 you pay for it!
    • Nose
      90 90
      This is a very good nose. Parfum, wood, sweetness, flower-shop. Woodpolish and what we call a colonial cabinet. Hint of fresh cigars. There is not very much of a classic sherry nose in here. But it is very pleasing. With some water: more caramel on the nose.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very sweet, a lot of apples. Honey and good mellow influence of wood. With water: less of the alcohol bite, but this stays very good.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium-long length. Almost starts with some freshness. But it changes to very good and heavy malty-caramel-cream notes. Again not much of the sherry influence here. With water: more balanced and strangely longer length.

    • Nose
      Really a lot of apple (yellow and red). Also baked apple with vanilla sugar. Rarely had so much apple in the nose. In addition malt. Peach ice tea. White grapes. Forest honey.
    • Taste
      Only really cute. Acacia honey. Again, this apple fruit. Apricot jam. Then it gets bitter. Apple pears must. And the oak is also noticeable.
    • Finish
      Apple and pear peel. Wet wood. Grapefruit.
