Glen Grant 1964 Moon Import - The Animals


A mega-rare Glen Grant 1964 bottled by the Italian company Moon Imports for their much sought-after 'The Animals' series.


A strange idea to put snakes on a whisky label methinks… Colour: dark amber. Nose: full sherry here! Starts smooth and rounded, all on sultanas and sweet wine (Maury, Banyuls, cream sherry) with hints of meat sauce (English brown sauce) that quickly vanish. Maybe a faint soapiness in the background but other than that it’s sultanas with ham galore! Maybe not the most complex old Glen Grant ever… Mouth: dry and extremely ‘oloroso-ed’! An avalanche of Syrma raisins this time, together with bags of bitter chocolate and litres of coffee-schnapps. Exactly like on the nose, it’s no complex whisky but it’s all very coherent. Re-fortified oloroso. Finish: long and still on the same notes. A little more oranges ala Dalmore and notes of roasted pine kernels and cashews in the back, which is very pleasant. Comments: more perfectly simple than simply perfect (wot?) but it’s very excellent heavily sherried malt. SGP:552 – 86 points.
