Glen Grant 1992 (The Whiskyman)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Glen Grant
The latest members of the Classic label series by The Whiskyman is a Glen Grant distilled in 1992.
Glen Grant 21 yo 1992
(48,4%, The Whiskyman for Vinothek Massen 2013, ex-bourbon cask, 118 btl.)
Nose: all the fruity brightness we expected. Juicy pears, apples with soft cinnamon and hints of pineapple. Lemon candy and Frosties. Some buttercups and freshly cut grasses. Vanilla custard. In the background, there’s also a buttery / waxy note. Very fresh and aromatic and nicely summery. Mouth: sweet and candied. Pear and apple galore again, mixed with citrus and a herbal sharpness (ginger, mustard, pepper). The barley and yeast shines through – very natural whisky. Fades on grapefruit zest and tonic bitterness. Finish: medium long, clean and fruity, with a slightly eau-de-vie kind of alcohol tang.
In summer I’m not looking for heavy, complex drams, so this will work out fine. Around € 80, only available from Vinothek Massen.
