Glen Grant 1995 21 year old (Signatory)
Bottle: Standard Signatory bottling.
Nose: Floral with a little salted caramel. Quite pleasant.
Body: Lighter side of medium and a little waxy.
Palate: Lemon curd, lightly salted butter, lemon sours. Fresh and a little bit tart.
Finish: The butter remains but gets saltier, elder flower and a little aniseed. A bit flat for me. This is where this dram lets itself down.
Neat/Ice/Water: Neat at 43%. Doesn’t need any watering.
Verdict: Quaffable. This is a small batch style dram that comes from 3 bourbon barrels (#88199, #88200, #88207). The result is a clean and uncomplicated malt that has a nice sweet, salt, citrus balancing act going on but that lacks any real wow factor. I got this at auction a few months ago after being impressed by a recent Cadenheads Glen Grant release but this wasn’t in the same league. Not bad though.
