On the Nose
This whisky is interestingly rich for a low proof Speyside... it's slightly floral with oaky overtones, and hints of baking spices and distant almonds.
On the Palate
Much more going on here than in the nose alone, I got malty caramel, delicate dried raisins and vanilla. The more I settled into the dram, I picked up buttery toffee, maybe even vanilla fudge.
I don't think water addEd to this single malt, better enjoyed neat as delivered from the distillery.
An all round great Speyside whisky, one which deserves a bit of attention. Not one I'd pick up as regular sipper, it absolutely requires more time and concentration to delve into the subtle flavours hidden in this fantastic Glen Grant.
