This Glen Grant is called ”Il capodanno in cucina!”, comes from a refill hogshead and only 154 bottles were made. When the alcohol roughness lingers off after a couple of minutes in the glass, the sweetness starts to fill your nose. Very much like Christmas cake.
The taste is very malty and sweet. It is actually not that feisty for a cask strength. The finish is somewhat the same as the taste, just different flavors of malt and sweetness.
A fine malt and it is a very classical Glen Grant. I would recommend some water. I got some spicy notes and it just got a bit more balanced. I will give this 85/100 (21/21/22/21).
