This year, Glen Grant celebrates its long, rich history, and the expertise of master distiller Dennis Malcolm with the launch of The Glen Grant Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary Edition single malt scotch whisky.
The launch event, held in Shanghai, culminated with a live auction of the bottle, Bottle No. 88, which was sold for a high price of 380,000 RMB (approximately SG$80,000), a testament to the prestige of The Glen Grant brand.
Reflecting on the diamond anniversary, Malcolm remarks, “It’s never been a job to me, it’s been a way of life.”
An extremely rare and luxurious liquid, this spirit has been aged for 60 years. With a deep chestnut colour, the aroma starts with notes of vibrant Seville orange, then giving way to an unravelling of rich fruits and nuts including peaches, apricot, pecan nuts and a hint of cigar smoke. Taste wise, it is rich and fruity, with a beautiful balance of dark chocolate layered with treacle toffee. This malt finishes with long, lingering flavours of figs, dates and liquorice.
