A man by the name of John Grant bought the distillery in 1865 and is still owned by his decedents making this one of the few family owned distilleries left in Scotland.
Nose: A touch of menthol. Classic Sherry notes, less pronounced than the 15 year old perhaps, but the complexity is greater.
Palate: Incredibly clean central palate, but amazingly tangy. Really zingy top notes. Sherry and creamy barley, hints of gingerbread and nutty chocolate.
Finish: Very, very long and complex finish, oak-rich, hints of smoke, cocoa, buttery.
