SMWS 9.88 - A heart-starter


Destilleri:Glen Grant
Uafhængig aftapper:SMWS - Scottish Malt Whisky Society


Omtalt i Outturn marts 2015:

Little aroma beyond ‘dry’ to start with: very dried fruits, dried out leather, ash, soot, but soon opens to present fruitcake mix, ‘over-steeped jasmine tea’, toasted Brazil nuts, warehouses, mushrooms. Nice texture; sweet overall but very tannic, even ascorbic; some burnt jam in the aftertaste and a bitter coffee dregs and dark chocolate in the finish. Surprisingly, water introduces a meaty note - fresh tuna - with buttered croissant, high strength cocoa powder, then treacle toffee, fig pigs and salted caramel. Not so tannic now, with dry liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate and burnt toast. Very unlike the familiar light-bodied proprietary bottling.
