Glen Grant 30 Year Old Tasting Notes

Nose: Warm spiced fruit crumble, honey sauce, a touch of slightly waxy oak, fresh and appealing.

Palate: Lashings of sherry fruits, malty chocolate Ovaltine, more warming up, but balanced with sweet undertones, slightly leathery.

Finish: Long and rewarding, meaty and chewy, gentle spice with the dried fruit notes persisting, pleasantly off-dry.

About this Duncan Taylor Octave

This is a 30 year old Glen Grant distilled in 1990. Duncan Taylor moved the whisky into a small sherry octave cask for a nine month finishing period. These small casks (around 60 litres) have a big impact on flavour. And being a small cask, it only produced 85 bottles of this very exclusive whisky.

Meet The Owner

Euan Shand

A whisky merchant by trade, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky was brought by Euan Shand in 2008, returning the company to Scottish hands. Since then, Duncan Taylor has gone on to celebrate its 80th birthday in 2018 and Euan now runs the company as Chairman.

Today, Duncan Taylor have a number of award-winning collections. My favourite three are their Single Casks, bottled all natural, their Octave Invigorated, with turbo-charged flavour from small sherry casks, and their Rare Auld Grain collection of exceptionally well-aged single grain whiskies.
