Glen Grant 18 Year Old “Rare Edition” at K&L California – Scotch Whisky News

GG18

Glen Grant 18 Year Old “Rare Edition” Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) $129.99

92 points Wine Enthusiast

  The aroma entices with vanilla, fresh fruit and waxy honey. Meanwhile, palate surprises with spice and light smoke, as mouthwatering waves of cayenne, jalapeño, mesquite and black pepper give way to soothing vanilla and honey. Dilution makes this dram more easy sipping and plays up the vanilla, but doesn’t change the peppery profile overall. (KN)   (12/2017)

Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost – Game of Thrones ‘House Stark’

Macallan Concept Number 1

Tasting NotesGeplaatst door Mark Dermul wo, maart 06, 2019 06:42:42

Distilleerderij:
Macallan
Regio: Schotland
(Speyside)
Fles: Macallan Concept Number 1, OB 2018, sherry cask ex-bourbon cask, travel
retail, 84.000 bts
Kleur: amber
ABV: 40%

Surrealistisch

Herinner u zich de gekte rond de Macallan Edition No.1 vier
jaar geleden? Destijds 90 EUR, maar nu gaat hij al voor het tienvoudige over de
toonbank (wat van de Edition No 2, 3 en 4 niet gezegd kan worden, die zijn
‘slechts verdubbeld’). En nu lanceert Macallan een nieuwe reeks. U raadt het
al: menig bottle flipper haastte zich
naar de winkel om deze snel aan te schaffen en onmiddellijk van de hand te
doen. Het werkte. Althans een paar weken. De eerste flessen gingen voor 300 EUR
en meer over de toonbank, maar ondertussen is de prijs al genormaliseerd naar
zijn oorspronkelijke 150 EUR. Er zijn immers 84.000 flessen gemaakt. Geen reden
tot paniek, dus. De verpakking is geïnspireerd op wereld van de surrealistische
kunst. Wel, da’s goed gekozen, zeg ik dan. De whisky werd eerst in sherryvaten
gerijpt, en kreeg daarna een even lange periode rusttijd op bourbonvaten. Hoe
lang dat precies is, wordt niet vermeld.

De neus is romig en zoet. Mierzoet. Citroenzeste en
gekonfijte gember, noten (amandelen in de hoofdrol) en groene banaan.
Ananassnoepjes. Hint van Turks Fruit en wat Graeffe suiker. Boterbabbelaars.
Helemaal niet slecht, typisch Macallan, maar mijn mond valt er niet van open.

De body is eerder licht. Te licht naar mij gading. Slechts
wat olieachtig en onmiddellijk pikant zoet. Wederom allerhande citrusfruit
(limoen, citroen, bergamot), zeste incluis, en hints van tropische vruchten die
gedroogd zijn. Ananas, iets van banaan en mango. Valt best mee. Het pikante
verzacht snel en neigt naar gember en andere kruiden van het hout.

De afdronk is zoet, licht drogend, maar vooral erg kort.

Hij viel me beter mee dan ik had gevreesd. Dat gezegd
zijnde: nog maar eens een NAS en nog maar eens op 40%. Ik wordt hier een beetje
moedeloos van. Maar ja, iemand moet die nieuwe distilleerderij toch betalen?

85/100
