Glen Grant 1948 70 Year Old Private Collection
Very few releases are ever as jaw dropping as a 70 year old whisky. This Glen Grant was distilled on Friday 11th June 1948 and was matured for seven long decades until 19th October 2018 when it was bottled from a first fill sherry butt. Amazingly, there were 210 bottles produced, each a beautiful decanter in a wooden presentation box.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Initially sweet- vanilla fudge, strawberr, and raspberry nuances deveop into thick apricot jam. Waxy polish aromas emerge and mix with cinnamon and candied orange peel. Gentle and lingering smoky traces complement the balanced mature oak notes. With tim, a subtle, fresh mint note unfolds.
Palate : Smooth; subtly sherry soaked fruit flavours fuse with fresh orange zest and cardamom undertones. A slightly dried herbal element develops and transforms into mouth-watering cracked black pepper and aniseed flavours. Delicate smoky notes edure.
Finish : A smooth, long, lingering finish introduces elegant charred oak and flashes of citrus.
