If I was home I'd have a nice Glen Grant 16yo Signatory CS (refill sherry) to open, here in Kirkwall however I have yet to find a pub with any Glen Grant not to mention the iffy internet service. :cry: . Better luck next month.


Cheers!

I haven't found a Glen Grant in these parts, so I'll do an Indie instead.
(just tasted less than a half hour ago)

Highland Park 40yo 1967 John Scott & Miller
47.1% Alc/Vol

Color: Deep Walnut
Nose: Caramel and Rum Raisin ice cream
Palate: Woody, but with lots of sweet sherry intertwined
Finish: Long and spicy with a late salt spray

Except for it's price (15 quid a dram!) I could have sucked on this all night!
A wonderful well-aged whisky!


Cheers!

I don't have much to offer here just the infamous Glen Grant 5yo. I always have a bottle on hand for those who really don't care about whisky but want to drink something with the word "scotch" on the label. Just dreadful stuff! Those of you who have finished an entire bottle know what I'm talking about. Almost nothing in terms of flavor, no finish, very grainy and weak. Italty abounds with the 5yo and it is definitely not my budget whisky choice. Glen Grant is supposed to have produced some fantastic older bottles, but I have never tried them.

I absolutely agree with your sentiments about the Glen Grant 5yo Ardbeg311, it's no wonder why my Italian brethren mix it with Coke! :o :lol:
