Duncan Taylor (distilled at Glen Grant), Cask #3480, 37 year old, 51.5%

Price: $336.00 Issue: Winter 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

I am amazed by how many old, sherried Glen Grant whiskies have been released to the market in the past ten years. (Did the distillery owners at the time also own sherry bodegas, or what?) Anyway, some of these have been dark, decadent, and delicious, and I’ll put this whisky in that category. Chestnut colored, with lush fruit, treacle, dark chocolate, leather, tobacco, roasted walnuts, and cherry cough syrup. A complex, well-structured whisky.
