This is a 25 year Glen Grant aged in an ex-sherry refill butt and bottled at 57.5% ABV.
Nose: Quite malty with loads of heather and fresh grass notes – some plum developing alongside a healthy dose of bread dough.
Palate: Doughy with harsh oak and a cotton note – quite dry with heather and malt remaining strong.
Finish: Dries out quickly with dough notes lingering.
Rating: 80/100 – A bit dry all around – very little indication on nose/palate of any sherry involvement.
Value for the money: The retail was around $220 for this one but I saw it on sale closer to $180 at one point. I would pass at either price.
