What they say
An independent bottling of Glen Grant single malt. The distillery in Speyside filled cask #10283, a refill hogshead, in April 1995. 18 years later, Douglas Laing had the honour of bottling the malty, spicy (and other words that end in -y, like tasty) whisky for their Old Particular range. Just 282 bottles were produced.
What I say
Another 1995 vintage Glen Grant, this time bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Particular range. This has matured for 18 years in a refill hogshead #10283 and produced 282 bottles at 48.4% ABV.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Dark gold (8/20), quick, medium tears, tapered legs.
- Nose: Sharper and more fruity with citrusy orange, barley malt, tracle and molasses, dark and funky, chocolate, rose and lemon Turkish delight.
- Taste: Full bodied, thcik golden syrup, honey, fruity apple, orange, pineapple, vanilla custard, apple pie with cinnamon and chocolate sauce, woody oak.
- Finish: Medium-short, spiced cocoa and cinnamon powders, dry with a honey sweetness.
Deeper and fruitier than the other expression I tried, darker on the nose with strong hits of cocoa and Turkish Delight.
Don’t take my word for it:
