Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets topaze.
  • Nose : frais, racé. Débordant de fruits : ananas, passion, banane, mirabelle, groseille blanche… Epicé : poivre blanc, cardamome, gingembre frais, muscade… Herbacé : foin coupé, anis étoilé, mousse, gentiane… D’une finesse inouïe, il devient de plus en plus chaleureux et concentré : des noix, du curry, du safran, des olives noires et une fine réglisse figurent parmi les témoins privilégiés de cette évolution solaire.
  • Palate : subtile et onctueuse à la fois. Des notes épicées et herbacées lui servent de colonne vertébrale et lui procurent beaucoup de profondeur de champ. De chaque côté du palais, on retrouve les mêmes fruits qu’au nez, certains se sont transformés en coulis (groseille blanche) ou bien en confiture (mirabelle). Son registre exotique a quant à lui conservé la même intensité. La toute fin de bouche est particulièrement gourmande (noix de coco).
  • Overall : finement boisée (chêne) et réglissée, elle se montre également huileuse (olive, noix). Pendant longtemps, elle nous permet de croquer à pleines dents dans la chair pulpeuse de ses nombreux fruits. Alors que des épices et des fruits noirs (mûre, cassis) accentuent son caractère minéral, sa fraîcheur et sa jeunesse d’expression laissent bouche bée. La rétro olfaction est cacaotée et le verre vide évoque un concentré de fruits et d’épices.
The brand

The brand

Founded in 1840, Glen Grant for a long time remained the property of the Chivas Brothers group (Pernod Ricard), before winding up in the hands of the Campari group in 2005. Mainly matured in ex-bourbon casks and bottled as a five and ten year old, Glen Grant is a little known single malt, considering the production capacity of its distillery. Producing almost six million litres of pure spirit every year, Glen Grant has the fourth highest capacity in Scotland after Roseisle, Glenfiddich and Macallan. It’s known best amongst single malt amateurs for its first-fill sherry casks released by the independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail.


This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

As its name suggests, the Rare Vintage range is quite simply a collection of rare, old vintages, and includes a substantial number of Gordon & MacPhail’s most sought-after single malts. Closely linked to the Distillery Labels range (the Rare Vintage bottlings also served as semi-official releases for several distilleries which had not had any proper official releases on the market for quite some time), the Rare Vintage bottles are to a large extent responsible for this historic specialist’s reputation.
