I was under the impression that this Glen Grant was going to be a classy rest-spot between two flavor-wise heavy hitters in the line-up. Thanks to Glen Grant being held out as one of the modern-day elder statesmen of whisky I expected a solid but unsurprising refuge. The flavors were a treat from beginning to end and what I expected to rely upon as a respectable place-holder turned out to be a tasty and complete whisky that easily stood up to other more fiery or peaty contenders.
Color – Lightest yellow
Nose – Cake, frosting included, banana, and gum
Palate – Lush yet delicate grain, tempered sugar and malt, hint of medicine, slightly watery mouthfeel, dangerously flavorful and subtle throughout.
