Glen Grant 1953 Official Tasting Notes

Aroma with water

Very rich with hints of big ripe oranges. Aromas of highly polished hardwood floors and comfy old leather armchairs. Some heathery notes and a touch of menthol. Some vanilla notes develop.



Taste without water

Very, very fruity - juicy oranges explode throughout the mouth! A smoky note develops. Hints of dark chocolate and toasted malt.



Aroma with water

'Old' notes remain - leather-bound ledgers, tobacco (cigar boxes) - a dry fruitiness (dried apricots) combines with a ground coffee note.



Taste with water

Menthol flavour evident initially with a hint of smoke. Smooth sweetness slides around the mouth and reveals a more subtle soft fruity note - pears and peaches.
