Tasting Notes

Glen Grant 1972 | Cask 8240 | Exceptional Casks - Producer Notes

This exceptional Glen Grant sherry butt oozes rich glazed fruit notes with bees wax and polished oak to the fore. The palate is wonderfully bright and accessible considering its age. The flavours build slowly but smoothly to release their sumptuous cargo of tropical fruits. A hint of creamy coal dust adds to the pleasure. The sweet luxurious texture and fruity notes linger long on the palate.
