Glen Grant 18 Year Old "Rare Edition" Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1389828 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 The aroma entices with vanilla, fresh fruit and waxy honey. Meanwhile, palate surprises with spice and light smoke, as mouthwatering waves of cayenne, jalapeño, mesquite and black pepper give way to soothing vanilla and honey. Dilution makes this dram more easy sipping and plays up the vanilla, but doesn't change the peppery profile overall. (KN)  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

Jim Murray 97 points! When one of the most influential whisky publications in the world routinely lavishes top accolades on a whisky it is hard to not take notice. Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible is in its 16th edition with the 2019 version and yet again Glen Grant's 18 year finds itself receiving lavish praise. The 2019 WB has placed Glen Grant 18 year as the "Second Finest Whisky Of The Year," an award that the same whisky received in 2017 and a notch better than 2018's "Third Finest award." That makes it 3 years in a row that the top ranked Scotch is the same whisky! This kind of consistency is absolutely remarkable and completely unmatched. Even the most coveted bourbons in the world don't manage to keep the same brand atop the list (even if another in the company's stable of brands is what unseats it). Murray's accolades aside, when we tasted the whisky, we went just as nuts for it. It's a stunner. Loaded with cream, caramel, vanilla, beeswax, honeyed granola, and citrus fruits, this dram is perfectly balanced. The palate adds spice and a touch of wood tannin and the finish, with a big flourish, changes incrementally with every sip. It's not hard to see how you might conclude this is some of the best juice available. If you take into account the spectacular pricing, it's even easier to rank this amongst the best of the best.
