Review of the new Glen Grant 18 Year Old

Glen Grant 18 Year Old ReviewThe new Glen Grant 18 Year Old was launched in June 2016, the new whisky is presented in a superior frosted-blue gift box with silver hues which is part of the distillery's new look contemporary packaging and now sits at the top of the Glen Grant core range.

Glen Grant tell me that a very limited number of bottles of the new Glen Grant 18 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky will be available, I assume they mean each year as it is in their core range.

Bottled at 43% ABV, it has an RRP of 110 and it will be available from specialist whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose:  Creamy vanilla and barley sugar, coconut, some distant candied orange and lemon.

Taste: Light bodied. Complex, gentle and vibrant with layers of delicate fruit, a dried fruit raisiny sweetness, a little lemon citrus and fresh apple. The fruit is countered by some oak spiciness and creamy and almost nutty vanilla.

Finish: Long, tangy fruit and sweet oak spice slowly fade, becoming a little dry.

Comment: Loved the lightly sugared oak amongst the delicate fruit. The oak becomes a little more spicy and drying after each mouthful. It is a good whisky but I fear it may have been priced out of many whisky drinkers reach but if your pockets are deep enough this is a very good light bodied Speyside whisky.

SMW Score 88/100

You can find the full current Glen Grant whisky range available from specialist Whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange
