Glen Grant Five Decades, 46%

Price: $177 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Created by Dennis Malcolm to celebrate his half century at Glen Grant, this uses casks

from each of his five decades. Pale it may be, but this is no dainty little

thing. There's lots of buttery oak before classic Glen Grant lift and energy

emerge: green apple, fruit blossom, William pear, and yellow fruits; lemon

butter icing and nettles with water. The palate is vibrant and energetic, but

holds to the middle of the tongue. A suitably celebratory dram.
