Glen Grant 1951

Yes you see correctly, this Glen Grant was distilled in 1951. 1951 saw the first television broadcast in the Netherlands, in black and white, of course. The black bakelite PTT telephone was also designed and, not unimportantly, Holland's greatest folk singer, André Hazes, was born in 1951. Meanwhile, the television has changed 'slightly' in over 70 years, the same goes for the telephone and André Hazes we only hear in the pub or on the radio.

Tasting note

Nose

Old leather, sweet nut mix, toffee, balsamic vinegar, dark chocolate, age in the form of mushrooms and damp woodland, as well as pipe tobacco and shag. 

Taste

Wow, how beautiful is this, unlike any other whisky ever tasted. Full, spicy, round, balanced, but each time with different flavours expressed on the palate. Smoke, tobacco, tar, confiture, toast, sweets, toffee, apricot, marzipan, chocolate, red fruit, yellow fruit, ripe banana. 
 

Finish

Medium-long, but what a nice flavour remains on the palate.

It is not exactly clear when this Glen Grant was bottled, but probably sometime in the mid-2000s, bringing the age to around 55 years.

More about Glen Grant Distillery

Glen Grant is a well-respected Scottish distillery based in Rothes in the Speyside region, famous for its single malt Scotch whisky. The distillery's history dates back to 1840, when brothers John and James Grant founded the distillery. The location was chosen because of the abundant supply of pure spring water from the nearby river and the accessibility of barley from Speyside's fertile fields. 

Over the years, Glen Grant is known for its innovations in the distilling process, including the introduction of purifiers by James 'The Major' Grant in the late 19th century, which contributed to the unique, clean and fresh taste of their whisky. 

Today, Glen Grant remains a prominent name in the whisky industry, known for its light, fruity and refined flavours characteristic of Speyside single malts. Their products regularly win awards and the distillery attracts visitors from all over the world, who come to experience the history and production process and to taste the unique nature of their whisky.
