Gordon & MacPhail 10 year old (distilled at Glen Grant), 40%

Price: $50 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This expression of Glen Grant has been matured in refill bourbon casks and is arguably more characterful than the distiller's own variant of the same age. Ripe orchard fruits on the nose, with honey and cinder toffee. The palate is light to medium in weight, offering more fresh fruit notes, vanilla, milk chocolate, and a hint of ginger. The nutty finish dries with just a hint of smoke.
