Glen Grant 18 Year Brilliance in a bottle.

Glen Grant was founded by John and James Grant—brothers who had been making their living by means of illegal distillation and smuggling. But with a desire to settle down a bit, they finally took out a license in 1840 becoming “legal” for the first time. They met with a bit of success, but things really took off when the operation was taken over by James’ son—James Jr.—who brought enthusiasm, intelligence, and energy to the company … literally, since he wired the place and made Glen Grant the first distillery with electricity.   

Young James went by the nickname “The Major” and he was always embracing new ideas. He was the first man in the Highlands to own a car, for goodness sake. But one of those new ideas was incorporating taller, narrow stills and purifiers to improve the quality of the Whisky. Some say that this gave the Glen Grant single-malt its lighter, grainy character and influenced what it means to be a Speyside single-malt to this day.

This single malt is a dream. Aged for at least 18 years in the finest hand-selected oak casks, this Spirit is radiantly golden with seductively floral and oaky aromas. This whisky is complexly nuanced, with rich and vibrant flavors of malted caramel, vanilla, and dried fruit, followed by a long, sweet and spicy finish.

Not my favorite. I can very much appreciate how clean this whisky is. None of the sherry or port finishes. Just a solid representation of a Speyside.

I bought this bottle, and really, really wanted to like it. I appreciate the complexities and some of the flavors, but for whatever reason I just did not really enjoy it and I know that I am in the minority. There's an underlying bitterness that is mild but permeates the nose, taste and finish. In addition some of the positive attributes such as the spice - which is quite nice - come in a bit faint.
