Single Malts of Scotland (distilled at Glen Grant) 1992, 57.8%

Price: $127 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

The initial nose is soft fruits doused in condensed milk, which contributes to an overall impression of light toffee and, weirdly for this distillery in its contemporary guise, some smoke. The fruits manage to mix the ripe and slightly sour. Quite intense; it needs water, which calms proceedings allowing typical Glen Grant purity to come through. The fruits now have some added weight and, again, that smokiness. Intriguing!£75
