Nose
Dates. Brown sugar. Caramel.
Palate
Rich. Smooth. Moist fruitcake, slightly burnt on the outside.
Finish
Slight woody bitterness.
Comment
Glen Grant was one of the first malts to be bottled as a single malt, in the days when light-tasting spirits were often filled into heavy sherry casks. I have always felt that this overwhelms the spirit. This example is better balanced than most.

Nose
Heady with an exotic lift. Chocolate, walnut whip, roasted nut. Oaky, but has some style. Water shows nutty, sherried notes.
Palate
A good weight of spirit. Rich and malty with a hint of soot. Pretty thick in the mouth and quite firm in structure. A complex range of flavours.
Finish
Dry and maybe just a little short.
Comment
Here's a rarity: an old Glen Grant in which the spirit hasn't been drowned by the cask.
