Glen Grant 170th Anniversary Limited Edition

This limited edition release will be available  worldwide in August 2010  at the recommended price of 100 Euros. Its bottled at 46% ABV. The label says  “unique selection of the finest vintages. Sweet rasin bouquet, richly fruited palate with hints of peat smoke. Intense long lingering finished”

Nose: Crisp and fresh with trademark clean barley and a squidgy prune and caramel note, some toffee and swwweewt lemon and citrus fruits.

Palate: Intense, with razor sharp grain cutting through green apples, some lemon, blood orange and banana skin. Sharp but pleasant spicy and earthy finale

Finish: Lengthy, with hints of peat among the fruit and grain, and the odd rich orange and berry note

Conclusion: This is made up of casks from the 70s, 80s and 90s and is proof positive that Glen Grant ages very well and can be  a refreshing, uncluttered and pure malt of the highest order.

It will be sold in a premium gift pack, across Europe, Taiwan, Travel Retail markets and the Glen Grant Distillery visitor centre in Rothes, Scotland, in a 70 cl bottle.
