Edition Spirits Glen Grant Tasting Notes

Posted: August 23, 2014 in Glen Grant, Scotch Whisky A-G

The First Edition Glen Grant 1994(?) (19 year old) 55.5%

Bourbon/ Code: EDI0033/ Dist: 1994(?) Btl: Feb 2014/ Tasted: Mar 2014

A beautifully elegant and deep nose of herbal honey, liberally sprinkled with icing sugar, followed by wonderfully crisp, honeyed citrus infused tropical fruit and sawdusty oak. With time a darker maltier note appears along with a wisp of smoke.

The palate is light and elegant, again very citric with dusty oak, sweet herbal honey and what appears to be quite a bit of salt. Poised and deep with the fruit displaying that lovely aged tropical demeanour. Good length with a balanced dry/ oily, nutty finish and a dusty spice after-taste. In conlusion it’s a lovely old Glen Grant.
