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 (3)

Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
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.
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.
Perfect sweet maltiness. Some cask! Finish: not too long but clean, fruity, sweet, and perfectly balanced.
A tad more complexity could have made this baby fetch 90 in my little book. Great spirit. 88 points.
Tasting Note by Stuart P
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.
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.
Rich, warm and satisfying.
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.
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.
The warmth and autumnal fruit linger, with just a trace of charcoal behind.
