Glen Grant Tasting Notes

Posted: November 11, 2011 in Glen Grant, Scotch Whisky A-G Glen Grant 1972 (39 year old) 48.7%

Sherry/ Dist: 1972 Btl: 2011/ Tasted: July 2011

A big, first-fill Oloroso nose. Wonderfully mature with earth, raisin and crumbly spice notes. Some gorgeous orange fruit emerges with time. Dilution makes it a touch more floral. 

The palate has plenty of rich, sherried fruit and tannins. Slightly one dimensional but a good depth. Water emphasises that simplicityA good peppery finish. The combination of tannins and alcohol makes it a tad drying. In conclusion: A pleasant enough sherry malt, a bit one dimensional on the palate, the addition of water doesn’t help much!
