Blended Grain 25 yo, Limited Batch No. 1/052500, 47%

Review #686
A blended grain from William Grant & Sons bottled for The Whisky Shop from the series “Rare Cask Reserves”. Oak spices and just a hint of floral notes in the smell. Old wet oak with sugary notes.

Oak and burned caramel at first in the taste. Again, a bit of floral notes mixing in with loads of oak spices. Cinnamon in particular. The sweetness really comes forward in the finish and stays for a long time.

It is very soft even though it is 47%, and very sweet as an old grain whisky should be. It´s an old whisky, so let it breath for some minutes in the glass so it can open up. That way, the alcohol notes goes a bit in the background, while the sweet notes comes more forward. I will give this 85/100 (21/21/22/21).
