Glen Grant 1956 #4450 Bottling Note

La Maison du Whisky celebrated their 60th Anniversary in style with a whole host of limited edition releases, including this absolutely astonishing 1956 vintage Glen Grant single malt, which was aged in a first-fill Sherry cask until 2015. It was bottled at 53.9% ABV with a small outturn of just 218 bottles (which are handsome indeed, and come alongside a wooden presentation box).

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Rich, concentrated. Phenomenally powerful and yet at the same time exceptionally fresh, the initial nose is full of tertiary aromas: floating dust, black liquorice, chocolate, leather, roasted fig, truffle, etc. It develops with slightly burnt, jammy notes (blackcurrant) and rhubarb. Unbelievably deep, it has stood the test of time with panache and generosity. Havana cigar smoke then drifts over the aromatic palette.

Palate: Lively, juicy. Underpinned by a remarkably fruity acidity produced by the Sherry, the opening digs a deep furrow and shifts the spotlight to notes of soil, liquorice, noble spices (saffron, cardamom) and heady florals (freesia, hyacinth). Red (strawberry, redcurrant) and ripe fruit (russet apples, apricots) suddenly appear on the mid-palate. Little by little, it becomes vanilla-flavoured and roasted.

Finish: Long, silky. Velvety tannins flood each and every taste bud. Most of the fruit is still present. Intimately close to the palate, it takes its time in developing notes of tobacco, raisins and black olives. The retro-nasal olfaction is warm, voluminous (taffeta, silk) and fruity (wild strawberry, blueberry). The empty glass has an amazingly young expression, dominated by malted barley.
