This is an old so-called licensed botting by Gordon & Macphail. This Glen Grant matured for no less than 25 years and has a stunning color.

The nose bursts with sherry notes and loads of summery fruit. Apples, oranges, sultanas and a single apricot. The whole in sprinkled with light honey. It also has something dusty, as if I am sitting in the attic. Lovely.

It is wonderfully oily and round with first a drying sherry influence before a big dose of nuts appears. Halfway it becomes honey sweet with force! But what a wonderful whisky, indeed!

In the long finish – which is dominated by orange peel – it leaves the mouth parched.

Great old school Glen Grant, like they don’t make ‘m anymore.
