What they say
From the incredibly well loved Glen Grant distillery comes a single cask single malt, bottled by Langside for the Hepburn’s Choice range. They’re adored for a reason, you know, so expect a rather delicious Scotch whisky with this one. It was aged for 10 years, between 2004 and 2014, in a refill hogshead.
What I say
A 10 year old Glen Grant expression distilled in 2004 and bottled 2014 by Langside Distillers as part of their Hepburn’s Choice range.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: White wine gold (5/20), loose, medium tears, medium legs.
- Nose: Fresh, apple pie and custard, icing sugar, vanilla, lemon & lime citrus/curd, grassy, linen, “dry” but sweet, juicy apples and pears, banana, melon.
- Taste: Medium-light in body, juicy fruits, sweet vanilla, crisp apples, apple jam, melon, cinnamon spice, slight chalky mineralic hints of Edinburgh Rock.
- Finish: Medium, spiced wood and custard apple.
A little lighter in body than the older expressions due in part to age and reduced activity of the refill hogshead used here perhaps? Still full of that lovely fruity character and gently sweet and spiced.
Don’t take my word for it:
