Glen Grant 18 Year Old, 43% Royal Mile Whiskies
The Glen Grant 18 Year Old has been showered with honours in recent times, with whisky guru Jim Murray naming it his scotch of the year for 2017, and second place worldwide for the year.
The nose is made up of mother’s cooking, homely and warm, and it can be broken down into oaky tones mixed with hints of spice.
The palate is sweet, characterized by a dominant vanilla and caramel marriage.
The finish is long and satisfying, carrying through the sweetness of the palate and delivering on the nose’s promise of spices. A truly top drawer whisky which could well cost a lot more than it does.
