Tasting note

  • Nose : élégant, racé. Au premier nez, des notes de chocolat au lait côtoient du bois précieux et des épices (cannelle, muscade). A l’aération, son registre tertiaire et floral s’affirme avec brio (châtaigne, noix fraîche, iris, lys). La palette aromatique devient au fur et à mesure abricotée et miellée (tilleul, acacia).
  • Palate : gourmande, onctueuse. Avec ses notes de vanille-bourbon, l’attaque en bouche nous emmène en plein du cœur du Kentucky respirer des senteurs de chêne et d’épices nobles. Particulièrement torréfiée (café, praline), le milieu de bouche fait preuve de beaucoup de fermeté sans être à aucun moment austère, bien au contraire tant l’arrière bouche fait preuve de délicatesse et de complexité.
  • Overall : longue, précise. De notes vanillées en fleurs capiteuses (réséda, giroflée) et de miel de lavande en épices fortes (muscade, cannelle), elle ne cesse de s’étoffer. Avec naturel, elle revient à ce qui est son essence même : l’orge maltée. L’arrière bouche se montre terreuse et racinaire (gingembre).
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.
