Glen Grant 18 Year Old Rare Edition Reviews

Borderline Perfection

Like most I read a lot of the reviews in the books and here on M of M and I love to go on you tube and watch and listen to Ralfy especially with the same thing in my hand he's doing- what a great game! ... I also dare say that I'm quite right to disagree with them sometimes JM way more so than Ralfy who I think is the fairest. Ralfy did the Adelphi Glen Grant 18 not this one and it really would be great if he did... Anyway my thoughts on GG18 (Hats of to JM on this one) are quite simply that this is "Borderline Perfection" One thing or word that many writers don't seem to use or refer to is "BALANCE". This is one of the best "Balanced" Malts I have ever enjoyed - onto my second bottle. Every aspect is equal... Analogy, its like driving your car after having a new set of tyres fitted but also getting your alignment done properly as well. Im not going to get into smells tastes and flavours they are all open to your own interpretation, so if you can I would suggest you try this asap. Glen Grant I stand and salute you. Ralfy God Bless you and a big dram ready if I ever meet you. Friends you really have to go a long way to come close to this one for the money.

Smoothness at its Best

My wife bought this for me for our anniversary and I was quite taken aback of her choice! Opened the bottle and added a splash of cold water to open this "Nectar of the Gods" and sipped it and paired it with a good cigar (Connecticut)! Very pleasant on the nose (not over powering) smooth to the palate, albeit a weak finish, but it's there if you "listen for it." Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this fine Whiskey for the seasoned connoisseur or for those looking to break into whiskey tasting. You can't go wrong with this one.

100% Recommended

Absolutely wonderful stuff, well balanced on the palate that leans more to the vanilla side, that has a finish that is a little thin, but knew that coming in at 43%ALC, that in no way distracts from this quality product. This may seem a bit odd, but as a Scotch I feel the best way to describe this bottle is that has somewhat of a Irish Whiskey taste and feel to it at times, all around a highly recommended whiskey.

Faultless

A wonderfully crafted drink. I do not tend to find much of interest in a Speyside, but this contains the depth, character and complexity of any Islay.

Superb balance

After over a decade of drinking whisky, I finally understood what a fruit-driven scotch is. And this one is superbly well balanced.

Good but not great

Reminds me of Tullibardine 20, I found it light to medium bodied, a bit too sweet for my taste. Yes very smooth medium-long finish. Flavor notes were vanilla and cream, toffee and caramel. whipped cream. Like a tasting at a sweet shop in Scotland. Whisky of the year though? Did this guy try Talisker Distiller's edition or just about anything from Campbeltown lately? I will enjoy it for sure, but probably not deserving of any extreme accolades.

Just buy it

Holy shit. Just buy it. First glass and now in love. Kept away from glen grant as the 10yr and usual run of mill sameness but the 18yr is def better than 18yr glendronnach and is defo something special

Disappointing.

Clean, smooth, pleasant but thin.
Was bought this as a birthday gift which was lovely but the whisky itself is very average. Of the thirty or so whiskies I have this probably has the least depth of flavour, I get the grassy reference, with a dry biscuity flavour. Of the ones I own this is comparable but inferior to the Glencadam 10. We have this early and then move on to the more interesting bottles.

superb!!

very smooth ..

Smooth and flavorful with lingering subtlety

Wow. Caramel jumps out at you first. Then it's just smooth smooth smooth and drifts off into many subtle flavors that are too nuanced for me to discern. After sipping neat, a touch of cold water seemed to bring forth more vanilla type flavors. Found a bottle at my local liquor warehouse (Dallas, TX) and am planning on getting another soon. This is IMHO the best value of any scotch I've bought. Every time I discover a great whiskey, it seems to jump up 5x or more in price, so this time I'm going to put away a bottles.

"Subtle" and Grassy

Its good but I think I was expecting more flavor. I did not pick up the vanilla/caramel but I did pick up a lot of grass. Perhaps my expectations were too high given the awards and comments here.

Just GREAT.....

This was so good, and to bad is out of stock....Vic

Smooth, subtle and grows on you. Just can't stop with one sip

Lovely. Light, caramel. At first, I wondered where the flavour was and then it just built and built. I just couldn't stop sipping it. And a long sweet finish -- I agree with the tasting note. Couldn't wait to get a bottle.

A whisky of subtle yet sublime quality.

Agree entirely with review headed "pleasantly builds,...."; comments made by an alleged 'novice' or otherwise, a spot on review. - I would also add that the finish is long, smooth and with a hint of toasted almonds. Utterly delicious!!!

Classic!

Pretty good, got two bottles at the Changi airport.

29th March 2017

pleasantly builds, slightly undercooked creamy toffee/caramel apple finish.

3 generous Gins into a Tuesday evening this novice has succumbed to cracking a bottle open. .... nose is incredible, over-ripe pear, although remains a slight green tinge, crisp green conference pear?? nose deep into a soft honeydew melon, raisins mixed with sweet golden honey.... It's sweet but altogether quite cool & fresh. Found the first taste a little underwhelming, almost lacked the complexity of the nose, however half way into a double it pleasantly builds, slightly undercooked creamy toffee/caramel apple finish. Very nice.
