Tasting note

  • Appearance : ambre à reflets acajou.
  • Nose : gourmand, suave. Tout d’abord concentré sur le pain d’épices, la cannelle et le tabac frais, il dévoile à l’aération des fleurs capiteuses (chèvrefeuille, lys) et de la gelée de coing. Il s’ouvre de plus en plus pour proposer des fruits secs (amande, noisette) et des cerises à l’eau de vie.
  • Palate : tendre, poudrée. Le cacao, la figue fraîche et les fruits compotés mettent en exergue son élégance. Charnue, elle évolue sur les épices (safran, musc), la concrète d’iris puis se prolonge sur des notes terreuses de racines de gentiane et sur les fleurs capiteuses (iris, gardénia).
  • Overall : longue, onctueuse. Le chocolat se décline sous toutes ses formes. La finesse de son boisé n’a d’égal que les fruits secs qui l’accompagnent (noix de cajou, abricot, praline). Le verre vide oscille entre le vin de xérès et l’orge maltée. Quelques fruits rouges et quelques notes balsamiques accentuent l’influence vivifiante du sherry.
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.

Merchant

Created in 1698, Berry Bros. & Rudd is one of the oldest wine and spirits merchants in the United Kingdom. Official suppliers to the British crown since the 18th century, the Berry and Rudd family is best known for offering a range of original and innovative products. The London shop located at 3 St James Street is a testament to the history of their knowledge and expertise and known for being home to experts with extremely high standards. In its role as a spirits bottler, Berry Bros. & Rudd selects and bottles high-quality whiskies and rums under the names “Berrys’ Own Selection, “BBR Retro” and “Exceptional Casks”.

The line

Berry Bros & Rudd have been selecting and bottling high quality whiskies and rums under the ‘Berry’s Own Selection’ label for more than 200 years. Doug McIvor, their in-house expert, has a strict philosophy when it comes to selecting the casks – they have to be mature, perfectly balanced and present a rare aromatic complexity. Occasionally, the selected barrel differs from the usual style of the distillery that has produced it, but that is of little concern to Doug, so long as the whisky complies with his rigorous criteria.
