2ND FINEST WHISKY IN THE WORLD - JIM MURRAY 2019


This unrivalled single malt matures for at least 18 years in the highest quality, handpicked oak casks, which creates a radiant golden colour and seductive floral and oaky aroma.


Deeply layered and complex, this rich and vibrant whisky delivers beautifully intricate flavours of malted caramel, vanilla, and raisins and lingers with a long, sweet, and pleasantly spicy finish.


Aroma: Rich and floral with oaky overtones and hints of baking spices


Taste: Malty caramel, delicate, dried raisins and vanilla


Finish: Long, sweet with hints of nuts and spice

Description

Details

Glen Grant is as a Speyside distillery with real heritage -producing one of the first single malts to be bottled as such, thanks to a decades-long symbiotic relationship with local whisky bottler Gordon & MacPhail, who have been bottling Glen Grant since at least the 1930s.

This relationship continues to this day, with the Elgin-based independent bottler releasing a seemingly endless supply of malts that continue to confirm that Glen Grant is one of only a handful of Speyside distilleries (the others including Macallan, Mortlach and Glenfarclas) producing a spirit that is capable of withstanding up to and over half a century of ageing in sherry casks.

Glen Grant was also the first distillery to bottle their own malt themselves, the first to install electric lighting (in 1861)and was the only Scottish distillery named after its owners, the Grant family (the distillery is now controlled by the Campari group).

Glen Grant merged with Glenlivet in the 1950s and the new company joined with Longmorn-Glenlivet in the 1970s, before bought by Seagram and ending up with Pernod Ricard after their joint takeover of Seagram with Diageo in 2001. Campari bought the distillery in 2006 and, after revamping the standard lines, are now experimenting with some older official bottlings, the first of which was a single cask 15yo. Independent bottlings are widely available.
