Our oenologists' opinion
Deep green gold colour. Pretty rather powerful nose of peat, cooked prunes, then hints of burnt caramel. Nice attack.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
A single malt whisky refers only to malted barley from a single distillery while a blended scotch is a blend of single malts and grain whiskies.
Domain and appellation
The inheritance of the « Major » James Grant has been perpetuated by Dennis Malcolm, who started at Glen Grant in 1961 as a barrel apprentice and nowadays director and master distiller.
Its proximity with the sea, the Garmouth port and the Spey River, all the necessary ingredients to the elaboration of great malts, are united. A unique elaboration process is used with high and thin pot stills with special purifiers, drawn and installed by the Major James Grant more than a century ago and still in order.
The precise aging in oak tanks, helping the development of limpid, natural and fresh whiskies, is the Glen Grant signature.
