Lonach is a label by Duncan Taylor and consists of single malts at high age at a very attractive price. The mixing of underproof and overproof casks to get the minimum required is something from the past, they claim, and this Glen Grant from 1969 might be proof of that, since it is bottled at 51,7% ABV. It was already released in 2008.

Wonderful, tropical nose on passon fruit, banana, orangettes, honey, mint, cinnamon and butterscotch. Yes, this is great. The sherry is far from overpowering. This is very fruity with just a touch of oak that works very supportively. Sweet butter after a few moments, with a hint of brown sugar.

A mild salty touch precedes an explosion of dark, juicy fruit, a little more spices than on the nose and wonderful toasted oak. Oh, boy, this is exactly what I was hoping for.

In the long, warm and mildly drying finish, the mint rears its head one more time.

One of the best Lonach bottlings I have tried so far. In fact, it is also one of the best Glen Grant I have tried so far! Unfortunately almost impossible to find nowadays.
