Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : acajou à reflets verdâtres.
  • Nose : profond, complexe. Des abricots, des mûres, des pivoines, des genêts, de la réglisse noire, des figues, des dattes, des parfums de plantes tropicales et des cerises à l’eau-de-vie : chacune de ces notes concourent à dresser un tableau particulièrement complexe et luxuriant de ce très vénérable Glen Grant. Le nez évolue avec minéralité (schiste, manganèse) sur la noix grillée, la gelée de coing et le tabac.
  • Palate : vive, racée. Son attaque oscille entre les fruits exotiques, les gelées de fruits mûrs, le bâton de réglisse et les épices nobles (cardamome, girofle, cannelle). Le milieu de bouche nous fait savourer un délicieux mélange de bois de santal, de tabac à pipe et de fruits rouges (framboise, fraise). Juteuse, elle se prolonge sur les agrumes (orange, clémentine).
  • Overall : longue, soyeuse. La finesse de ses tannins communique à son toucher beaucoup de délicatesse et de velouté. Son acidité vivifiante laisse entrevoir des graines de moutarde et des cerises à l’eau-de-vie. Dotée d’une belle amertume (gentiane), la rétro-olfaction est également poudrée (riz au lait). Le verre vide est floral et capiteux (tubéreuse, lilas mauve).
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

The Book of Kells is a range by Scottish whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail, which brings together its best whiskies and, since the 1970s, has generally been reserved for exclusive bottlings for a few long-standing customers, such as LMDW. The label of each bottle features a reproduction of an illumination from the famous 8th century manuscript, the Book of Kells. The illumination shows two people, ‘the Dram Takers”, sharing a glass. Hence the reason why the range is often referred to as the Dram Takers.
