Glen Grant - its all greek to me

Postby evertonmint » Mon Mar 07, 2011 9:55 am

Hi Guys

Anyone know who stocks Glen Grant (limited additions etc) on behalf on the distillery? I assume they do a Macallan thing? I contacted the distillery about there being nothing on their webby about purchasing and they advised I could call at the distillery :P

I pointed out to them that the had spelt "centre" incorrectly on their site...the reply.... "The spelling is correct in the UK but in certain parts of the world where American English is used it is spelt 'center'"

Lol the country is doomed!! :headbang:

Not clear to me what you mean, but Gordon & Macphails hold a very large stockl of old Glen Grant.

Douglas Laing also issues Glen Grant under its Old Malt Cask 'banner' on a fairly regular basis.

Thanks for the responses, what I meant was that if they dont have an online shop how do people buy their limited additions or even bog standard malt....we cannot drive upto rothes everytime we fancy a nip :) It tends not to be in the supermarkets etc

You spelled "additions" incorrectly. They are limited "editions" Just pointing out.

If we're going to be pedantic it should be 'spelt', as it is the past tense of to spell.
Just pointing out.

I think you missed the punctuation after "editions". Just pointing out.

Cheers.

Quite right evertonmint, touche. (I don't know how to get the accent on touche).

I think the past participle of the verb to spell can be either spelled or spelt, John Barleycorn.

However, none of this has anything to do with good whisky, my fellow malt heads, and I was admittedly being pedantic after a couple of drams of Glenfarclas 15.

We spell it Centre on this side of the pond as well. As for Glen Grant, there are a large number of 25 yo bottles available in the Toronto to Ottawa area at the LCBO:
25YO GLEN GRANT (GORDON & MACPHAIL) VINTAGES 204081 | 700 mL n/a
Price: $ 159.95

Spelt and spelled are both right. Centre is spelling this side of the pond, and probably in Canada? "Its all greek to me" should be "It's all Greek to me"... Glen Grant ages very well. I like it a lot. There's some very good independent versions too.

Jeeez!! ok thanks for that....could you also assist with "the pond"? Should it be "The Pond"? I think the point was that Glen Grant is over here....not over there.....err... I think.

I was only joking...

And The Pond and the pond is a style issue, rather than a grammar issue! Since it's not actually the name of an ocean, I'd go with 'the pond'.

You're far to kind. You deserve a share of the credit too for getting the ball rolling. Long live the revolution.

I think I'm glad there's a large pond between myself and you two characters. I don't know what calamity would strike the Whisky World if we were able to get together. mayhaps the whisky lake / loch would become a puddle or ditch!

It was only light-hearted banter.

I don't mind at all about bad grammar - I make plenty of mistakes myself. Sorry if anyone took it up wrong or was offended.

And to bring the thread back on topic, http://www.whiskyfinder.eu is a very good website to find who sells what and at what price.
