Distiller: Glen Grant
Bottler: Alexander Murray
Brand: Subtle Spirits
Selection: Subtle Spirits
ABV: 52.4% ABV
Age: 23 Years
Nose: Sweet honey, heather, musty lemon, toffee and dough. Sweet, malty, very standard Glen Grant profile.
Taste: Medium mouth feel. Sweet lemon, lime, minerality, faint dough, almond. Pepper, faint bitter orange.
Finish: Long, sweet, but a bit hot. Lemon, pepper, faint sulfur, toasted almond and vanilla bean.
Overall: Very nice overall. It’s pretty typical for old bourbon Glen Grant – solid, but not exceptional. It’s good to see more of these coming to market and holding up the quality of the few, rare, previous Grants that have come to spotlight.
