Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Berry Bros & Rudd 70cl / 56.1%
Glen Grant is one of Speyside's classiest spirits, and this 1998 vintage 24-year-old refill sherry butt by our fancy-trousered pals at Berry Bros & Rudd has been bottled at its full cask strength of 56.1%, so expect fireworks.
This Berry Bros 24-year-old Glen Grant came from cask #13214 of the 1998 vintage, yielding an impressive 612 bottles - and if it's not one of the whiskies of the year so far we'll eat our top hats.

Official Tasting Notes
Glen Grant is one of Speyside’s stalwarts, consistently producing outstanding whiskies in its own subtle, understated way, this old sherry butt is a perfect example.
Nose: The harmonious nose is a masterclass in maturation over wood-seasoning showing well developed distillate character; bruised apples, hessian, orange zest and aged desert wine.
Palate: This theme drifts onto the palate with the oak very gently guiding more soft fruit notes over the palate. There’s a hint of wood smoke on the palate along with a little more fresh fruit.
A great example of classy old distillate left to mature in a wonderfully inactive cask, turns out wood doesn’t always make the whisky
