An intriguing Single Malts of Scotland bottling of whisky from Glen Grant. While the distillery isn't known for smokiness, there's a distinct whiff of wood smoke sitting in the background of this fruity 22 year old.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    Four stars and a half

    Colour: pale gold.

    Nose: typical modern Glen Grant with bags and bags of apples and a few pears, then gooseberries, then peaches, all that being covered with a little barley water and sugarcane syrup. Very average malt whisky, in the best sense of the word ‘average’. With water: more of all that with an added freshness. How could anyone be against this? Whiffs of dough and flowers.

    Mouth (neat): sweet, big, very orchardy again, and punchy as well. Young calvados plus apple and pear juice, some barley syrup and some honey. It's simple, but it's perfect. Maybe a hint of Irishness, pure pot still style.

    With water: perfect sweet maltiness. Some cask! Finish: not too long but clean, fruity, sweet, and perfectly balanced.

    Comments: a tad more complexity could have made this baby fetch 90 in my little book. Great spirit. 88 points.

  • Tasting Note by Stuart P

    Nose: An unexpected but delicious whack of barbecue sauce, with smoke and smoked-meat notes wafting out of the glass, softened by lemon, red-fruit and floral notes.

    Palate: The meaty, smoky flavours persist – treacle-and-mustard-glazed ham with star anise and some spicy fruitiness. Hold the ketchup; this is the perfect accompaniment to a burger.

    Finish: Rich, warm and satisfying.

  • Producer's Notes

    Nose: Thick toffee and hickory smoke create a remarkable nose. The wood has married with the spirit to create an incredible balance of sweet summer berries and dark treacle.

    Palate: Heavy, with a balance of savoury and sweet. Air-dried ham hock with a dollop of thick chutney. Wood smoke remains in the background, with the flavours of baked apples and currants coming though at the front of the palate.

    Finish: The warmth and autumnal fruit linger, with just a trace of charcoal behind.
