GLEN GRANT Samaroli 21 Y.O. 1963 46%   

 La partita di questo vecchio malt, precede il potenziamento della distilleria ( da 4 a 6 alambicchi nel 1973, da 6 a 10 nel 1977 ). Irripetibile nel futuro, si presenta delicato e sfumato nei profumi, rotondo e morbido al gusto. Elegante e di grande carattere ad un tempo. Scelto su campione il 1°marzo e selezionato ogni singolo barile il 26 Maggio 1984. Ne ho eliminato uno per tannino esuberante. Totale per l’intera partita 480 bottiglie. Questa è la n°388. Non è stato colorato con caramello, ne’ filtrato con carbone,
ma si è resa necessaria la diluizione con acqua per la sua estrema delicatezza ed armonia.

GLEN GRANT Samaroli 15 Y.O. 1969 sherry cask 59 %   

COLOUR: amber
NOSE: this one is unusually spirity (yeah I saw the ABV), harsh, very grassy, with heavy notes of lees, red wine and cherry stem tea. Not very pleasant I’m afraid but I’m sure water will help mucho. With water: gets a little cleaner and smokier as well, but not really any more aromatic. A little more mint, though, as well as a little leather. Hints of peat. Did they sometimes peat Glen Grant in 1969?

PALATE: wham-bam-bim-a-la-dong! It’s all pretty much higgledy-piggledy when undiluted, even if less so than on the nose. I believe very old Glen Grants can be superb at 40 to 50% vol., but they may lack oxygen when climbing higher. With water: water works a little better than on the nose, bringing out more spices but other than that it’s hard to say this one improved a lot. A little peat once again, but less than on the nose.
FINISH : rather long, unexpectedly grassy and paraffiny. Herbal liqueur, Underberg.

GLEN GRANT Berry Bros & Rudd 1972 – 2006 34 Y.O. 46 %    

COLOUR : full gold
NOSE: a truly superb start on a whole basket of fresh and sometimes overripe fruits, both tropical and ‘western’. Apples, mangos, bananas, papayas, pineapples, passion fruits, longans, dates… the list is endless. Gets then magnificently honeyed, heathery and then slightly resinous and camphory. Let’s keep this short: it’s a fantastic nose that’ll arouse anybody’s enthusiasm, with also kind of an old bottle effect – yes, I know it’s not an old bottle.
PALATE : a very good start, probably a little less demonstrative but really multidimensional.Kind of a ‘toasti-smokiness’, a little spearmint, dried fruits (not fresh ones this time), tobacco, marmalade, bitter chocolate, un-sugared espresso, superb hints of marc de gewürztraminer eau-de-vie (but then again, I’m an Alsatian)…
FINISH : It’s getting better and better, fab, fab, fab. And the finish is long, very long, very very long, smoky and jammy but also ultra-clean. In short, a true masterpiece that will make your day just like it just made mine..
