First Impression: Glen Grant Celebration 1985

[45%・30 Years Old・Silvano Samaroli Bottling・Cask 10196]

Nose:

Aromas one desires the most in the morning.. a rich toffee note that is most endearing served with freshly brewed café au lait. The vanilla note is elegantly inserted and is incredibly indulgent, it pairs well with fresh pear purée and cremè caramel.

Palate & Finish:

English tea stirred with a drizzle of vanilla cream, dressed with a sprinkle of coffee ground to draw out the raisins and white peaches. More of that refreshing white tea note sipping out but at the same time the velvety body continues with a sweetened caffè latte note that extends and satisfies in a restrained manner.

Thoughts:

Bravo! I am glad and honoured to experience a modern masterpiece. Truly an offering that is worth celebrating for.
