GLEN GRANT 51 ANS 1965 LMDW Cellar Book G&M 43,6%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 53665

Like a theatre piece packed with plot twists, the three acts that mark the aromatic and gustatory palette of this venerable bottling unfold without the slightest hint of an interval. Full of inspiration and keeping us on tenterhooks right to the end, it stages a Glen Grant that is in turn sensual, exotic, medicinal, oxidative, crunchy, juicy, generous, concentrated radiant, floral, nobly spiced, heady, classic, spiritual and contemplative.

Profile: complex, the initial nose is unctuous, fruity, chocolatey and spiced. Allowed to breathe, it becomes increasingly exotic (passion fruit, persimmon), floral (lime blossom) and medicinal. The incredibly juicy attack is also slightly acidic. It gradually moves into notes of dessert (buttered toast) and vanilla. The finish is honeyed, nobly spiced (saffron) and balsamic. Notes of incense add a spiritual touch.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : mahogany with bronze hues.
  • Nose : rich, complex. The initial nose expresses sensual notes of walnut husk, emery paper, blackcurrant, dark chocolate, fresh fig and curry. Full of exoticism (persimmon, passion fruit, banana), it develops into roasted (coffee, tobacco), floral (lime blossom, tuberose), liquorice and medicinal (camphor, benzoin resin) notes. Increasingly oxidative, it returns to the aromas of strawberry jam, cherries in brandy straight from the jar and crème brûlée.
  • Palate : generous, fresh. The attack is like biting into cherries in brandy. A deliciously tangy juice escapes, as their skins smoothly envelop the palate. Far from being finished, the mid-palate evokes strawberry jam toasts that burst with flavour. The radiant end of the palate is full of vanilla, floral and vegetal (absinthe) notes.
  • Overall : soft, silky. The finish has lots of bite, releasing an abundance of sublime honeys (lime blossom, pine, heather), noble spices (saffron), dried fruit (fig, date) and even heady florals (geranium). The retro-nasal olfaction wavers between exoticism (plantain), balsamic freshness (sherry vinegar, Vosges bonbons) and classicism (malted barley). With huge spirituality (incense, old rose), the empty glass is an invitation to meditate and reflect on the passing time.
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.
