Doux, délicatement fruité, frangipane…il fait vraiment son âge. Bois toasté subtil. En bouche, extrêmement moelleux en texture mais aussi très sec, très marqué par le bois (trop ?)

Enthousiasme 3/5

Dede gave this whisky 88 points

Nez : fruité délicat et acidulé, oscillant entre exotisme flou et agrumes. Un aspect végétal également (herbe coupée), ainsi qu'un peu de vanille et de pâte d'amande.

Bouche : la texture est très fluide, mais l'alcool assez présent pour 46%. Pas omniprésent mais j'ai connu mieux intégré. Côté saveurs, on reste dans la continuité du nez, c'est frais, fruité et acidulé, avec un peu d'amertume végétale et de cire. Il est meilleur avec un peu d'eau qui l'ouvre sans le dénaturer.

FInale : longue et acidulée, bonbons au citron. Le bois la rend légèrement asséchante.

Conclusion : un bon malt frais et estival, mais ne fait pas son âge.

Nose

Malty and lightly vanilla. Sweet grass, and a drop of sunflower oil. There's some fruti in there, but it's faint at first, and more tropical than red/purple. It bears the characteristics of a light, summer dram. With a few more minutes of air (patience is very much rewarded), you get wild strawberries, pineapple, sweet lemon, melon, and that sort of thing. More fruits!

Taste

Light and easy. It's oak forward, but not overbearing. Loose honey, vanilla (subtle). A little waxy and oily, with a nice blend of fruit. Actually reminds me of a light Clynelish crossed with some lightly fruity Lowland. Sometimes a slightly metallic note emerges.

Finish

More of the same, with maybe a touch of coffee and sour fruit in the very back of the throat. I wasn't sure what to expect, and it's unlike the other Glen Grants that I've had. I like it, and it's an easy sipper, it just lacks oomph and something to take it to the next level, along with the odd note every now and again.

Die Nase ist mittel. Holzig, leicht rauchig, leicht stechend aber angenehm.

Taste

Der Geschmack ist komplex. Würzig, leicht salzig, leicht chlorig, leichte Mandel.

Finish

Der Abgang ist sehr lang. Leicht bitter, weich, fassig, angenehm, nachhaltig.

Comments

Ein grosser Glen Grant.
