Gruppo Campari, who own the Glen Grant distillery (they bought it from Chivas Brothers in 2005), launched the Glen Grant 16 Year Old in 2009. It has been praised by many as the best in their current standard range.

The nose bursts with stone fruit. Peach, grapes, but also pears on syrup. Slightly creamy with a whiff on crème brûlée, vanilla custard and a handful of oak. Silky soft and honeysweet. Some nuts too. This is quite good!

It is wonderfully creamy and feisty on the palate. Loads of pears, light peppers, a basketful of nuts. Full body and very warm. This is classy in all its straightforwardness.

The finish is long and warm on liquorice.

This is a serious step up from the 10 Year Old that merits the price tag. Available for around 35 EUR.
