Winning bid: £400.00
Lot number: 076-0769

Glen Grant apparently comes "From the Heath Covered Mountains of Scotia". Founded in 1840 by brothers James and John Grant, in 1861 they were the first to install electric light in the distillery. It remains the biggest selling single malt in Italy and in 2006 the distillery was bought by Campari for £115 million.

This Glen Grant has been bottled by Signatory Vintage on behalf of Velier. Serge awarded it 90 points on Whiskyfun.com, comparing it to Macallans of similar vintage.

So top marks for the whisky; it's just a shame the same can't be said about their spelling. We know people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, but "Edimburgh", really!?

Distilled: 27.01.1972

Bottled: August 1995

Cask Type: Sherry Butt

Cask Number: 689

43% ABV / 70cl
