What they say

This Glen Grant is from another dimension! No, wait, on closer inspection, it’s from the Duncan Taylor Dimensions range, which highlights the vast varieties of whisky they’ve bottled over the years. 226 bottles of this 17 year old single malt were produced.

Official tasting notes:

  • Nose: Beautifully fragrant nose, with gooseberries, apricots, watermelon, a touch of honey and spiced oak.
  • Palate: Intense and rounded, notes of rich spices and malt. A little soft fruit, honey and toffee apples.
  • Finish: Long and cinnamon-led finish.
