Nose
Winey. Treacle toffee.
Palate
Despite hefty oak and sherry, the distillery character survives. The characteristic hazelnut dryness extends into a maltiness reminiscent of hard cookies. Like drinking a Bath Oliver biscuit.
Finish
Some cedary oak.
Comment
I usually find delicate old Glen Grants to be overwhelmed by oak. This example makes for a mature dram with considerable complexity.

Dave Broom

Nose
Oily, dried fruits, hint of rancio and Marmite. Burnt orange, allspice, nutmeg and clove.
Palate
Soft start builds nicely good weight. Rich and sherried, tannic but a chocolate/coffee richness and depth to it.
Finish
Woody and a bit short.
Comment
Interesting and while not overly woody (given its age) one for sherried malt lovers only.
