Glen Grant 1992 (Whisky-Fässle)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Glen Grant

A new release in the Ducks series by Whisky-Fässle: Glen Grant 1992. It’s crazy how the 1990s seems like yesterday and it’s 20 years ago already. If this is middle-aged, it means I’m getting old…

(50,4%, Whisky-Fässle 2013, bourbon hogshead)

Nose: bright and fruity. Green apples and pears. Citrus juice. Unripe banana. Touches of coriander seeds and parsley. Also buttery notes and hints of chalk / wool. With its malty core and fruity notes, it reminds me of certain Belgian triple beers. Mouth: sweet, fruity, rather easy. Candy sugar, peach and pear drops. Soft white pepper and vanilla. A little dough. Citrus again. Finish: long, just as fresh. Citrus zest and spices.

A very fresh and vibrant whisky, coming across slightly younger than it actually is. Around € 90, available from Whisky-Fässle of course.

Score: 88/100
