I was searching for some of my notes for a Glen Grant and discovered that, in fact, not only had I never typed them up, I never typed up any notes from a tasting session back in October. Memory fades, but tasting notes are... slightly less ephemeral.
Nose: Lots of malt and cereal at first blush. Very fruity and heavy on the tropical. Pineapple and lemon zest for that touch of bitterness. This reminds me of a classic Clynelish profile, only less smoky and waxy. There's something of corn-stalks and buttered biscuits. It's interesting, to say the least.
Palate: Silky and supple texture. Honey, beeswax, light dates for the slightly darker note, and more lemon. And pineapple. It takes a malty and peppery turn on the tongue at the end.
Finish: There's a slight smokiness, but it's extremely mellow. The same fruits, though new flavors emerge: cardamom, oak (or oaky cardboard), all-spice, and thinned honey. Light and pleasantly inoffensive. It doesn't quite go on or have a full finish, but it's nice.
