    Wood, very dense sherry, need to breathe in his glass (1h30) and a little "wet board" by adding water, better dry. A little gem for the sherry monster lovers of which I am a part.
    • Nose
      Very round and not aggressive, mainly on sherry, some notes of raw ham, a little licorice, freshly cut grass.
    • Taste
      Rather dry on the wood (but not bitter like the 25-year-old Glengoyne OB) and then coffee, dark chocolate-red fruit mix (candied cherry or cooked raspberry). Finally, on the vineux, raisins-rum. Not extremely complex but the present aromas are interesting and the wood beautifully integrated as well as the alcohol.
    • Finish
      Long but rather "light", more on the wood than on the other aromas, relatively dry, very slightly peppered.

    with water a little softer, even more cherries. Normally I love old sherried GG, this one is suberb - but for me a little bit to much sherry
    • Nose
      nice old sherry GG with many sherry notes, sweet cherries, rumraisins, toffee, caramell, burnt sugar, some balsamico and marzipan
    • Taste
      sherry at it's best, some nutshells, dry mouthfeel
    • Finish
      long, but the sherry is to much here, lots of cherries, dry, some oak, chocolates

    Fully meets the high expectations that I have regarding the Old Train Line Series, which was never disappointed. Fabulous Glen Grant! Old Glen Grants are among the best Sherry Cask bottlings and do not have to hide behind Macallan, Glenfarclas or Glengoyne. This bottling underlines their high reputation.
    • Nose
      Powerful. Sherry and dark chocolate. Cake. Hints of oranges and strawberry jam but not very fruity. Very pleasant and nice nose.
    • Taste
      Full, rich, sweet and creamy sherry flavour. Wow, I love it! Much fruitier than on the nose with lots of oranges and strawberry jam. The oak stays discreet in the backgound.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet, mainly on fruits and sherry. Lovely.
