Tasting note

  • Appearance : ambre cuivré.
  • Nose : complexe, profond. Dans un premier temps, il suggère plus qu’il ne révèle. Une chose est sûre, la finesse est son credo. Des graines de moutarde et des épices nobles commencent par dresser une charpente élancée sur laquelle viennent se poser des fruits exotiques. Désormais tout est en place pour qu’éclosent des parfums floraux tous plus envoûtants les uns que les autres : fleurs blanches (lilas, muguet, lys), bois de rose, freesia, tubéreuse et tant d’autres encore.
  • Palate : ferme, racée. Le chocolat noir et la mangue forment un duo dont l’harmonie sonne comme une évidence. Des fruits de la passion et des kakis renforcent ensuite le caractère exotique de l’entame de bouche. Puis, avec énormément d’élégance, le xérès prend les choses en main. Place au toffee, aux dragées, au cuir (lanière), aux fruits secs (abricot, amande) et aux cerises à l’eau de vie. Pleine de vitalité, elle libère des parfums de rose ancienne et de cire.
  • Overall : longue, elle ne cesse de gagner en complexité et en richesse. Le chocolat est retourné à l’état de fève, les fruits se sont confits à l’extrême et les épices sont devenues plus fortes. Capiteuse, elle est en même temps d’une grande fraîcheur et propose à profusion des dattes et des figues dont certaines sont sèches et d’autres juteuses. La rétro olfaction est saline et le verre vide aromatique (sauge, sarriette, romarin).
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.
