Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer J. & G. Grant
A repeat of the “DRAM GOOD” release in the LCBO's WHISKY SHOP and just in time to celebrate FATHER'S DAY on Sunday, June 19. This bright light ambering-orange-gold colour classic is thankfully back in stock after doubling LCBO sales over the past year. It has a very attractive, gently honeyed, spicy, warm ripe plummy nose with some honeyed, caramel notes with a faint hint of smoke. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, harmonious, well structured, slightly spicy, bright, mellow, ripe plummy-caramel flavours with a lingering, honeyed, faintly nutty, orange citrus tinged finish. Deliciously rounded, it has 43% alcohol with a new lot number 28.01.22 on the lower part of the glass bottle and is available in only 65 selected LCBO stores. CSPC 464636

A Best Buy
Tasting Note: Nose: a wonderfully fresh mix of grape and mint. Taste: light, youthful, playful, mouthwatering. Less plodding honey, more vibrant Demerara and juiced-up butterscotch. Finish: long, with soft almost ice-cream style vanillas with a grapey topping. A superb re-working of an always trustworthy malt. This dramatic change in shape works a treat and suits the malt perfectly. What a sensational success!! Score - 94. (Jim Murray, Whisky Bible, 2018)
