Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1964 GM
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 96.30 points
- Very complex, old sherry whisky. Great nose, very round taste and long finish. So far my absolute highlight!
- Great, my best DRAM ever. It transports it in an "old dusty library in a leather armchair" - feeling perfect.
- Wow, I love these old whiskys, which also got a good portion on tap. A real sherry bomb with an insane body and a fabulous complexity that I would not have expected from a 43% whisky.
Sherry, dark fruits, tannins, dark chocolate.
Extremely round, sherry continues, a nice sweetness, dark fruits and chocolate, as already announced by the smell. A very complex body with fantastically integrated alcohol. The barrel taste is present but not dominant. Again a real hammer.
Very long and sweet. All flavors remain in the mouth.
- This GG comes in my top 10
- I’ve already tried quite a few old Glen Grant by independent bottlers (luckily), many have been excellent. And of course, we all love this marvellous old stuff. Colour: Coca Cola. Nose: Amazingly rich and yet quite elegant. There are prunes and menthol at first, also hints of walnut stain, cedar wood and black tea, then rather fruit ganaches and cherry liqueur. For me some proper old PX from Jerez, too. A marvellous nose and no over-oakiness that I can detect. Mouth: Just some superb oak, which translates into walnuts, black tea and indeed marginal cedar wood. Impressive for me is that there is still a huge fruitiness, prunes, black raisins and various kinds of oranges, including the bitter ones. It simply works. Finish: Long, almost unnatural, fruity, with a lot of pipe tobacco, not really drying oak, even in the aftertaste. A bit of chocolate. Comments: Showtime! This is something special - heaven for many, many whisky-lovers...
