On one hand this is a very nice whisky with no real flaws, on the other hand I would have expected a bit more from a whisky of that age. The palate feels a bit unbalanced. – Rating: 83/100

After the massive nose, the palate feels rather shy and lacking the complexity you would expect from a whisky of this age. Still a very fine dram but not outstanding. – Rating: 87/100

Especially with water, this malt is very complex, the mix of spicy, herbal and light floral notes is intriguing. – Rating: 86/100

If you have £8000 to spare, you will be rewarded with an excellent and very unusual whisky. Remarkably little wood influence after 60 years in the cask, I can only call it intensely delicate. – Rating: 91/100

Glen Grant 59 yo 1952 Gordon & Macphail

May 22, 2012

It has a nose to die for as well as many lovely flavours on the palate, but the very adstringent ‘woody’ mouthfeel is detrimental. – Rating: 87/100

Glen Grant The Major’s Reserve

October 26, 2010

Overall: This youngster just dosen’t cut it. It’s the cheapest single malt in competition with Loch Lomond at the price of a major brand blend. Actually I would recommend to stick to one of those like for example Teacher’s. – Rating: 62/100

Glen Grant 1972/2010 Whisky Doris

July 27, 2010

An amazing 38 year old malt that does not show its age very obviously. Almost entirely fruity and practically without wood notes. Highly enjoyable. – Rating: 88/100

Glen Grant 1990/2008 Signatory

September 22, 2009

A nice contrast between dried fruits in the nose and tropical fruits on the palate. Needs a good amount of water. Wood spice is a bit too dominant for my taste. – Score: 80/100
