Glen Grant 15 year old 100 proof
scotch whisky

Glen Grant, 15-Year-Old, 100% Proof, (distilled 1970s)

RRP £600

Thankfully, old examples of Glen Grant can be found more easily than whiskies from other distilleries, since it is often very good and not as expensive. This Speyside Scotch has typical smokiness of a bygone era when peat was used to dry barley everywhere, not just on Islay. It is like eating toffee apples next to a bonfire. There are also blackstrap molasses mixed with spice, white pepper and rapeseed oil. On the finish, pencil shavings and furniture polish bring the dram to an end.
