  • Age:

    8 Years

  • Intro:

    This is a well dated blend from Grants. This bottling is from the 1980s when this product line carried an age statement.

  • Nose:

    Super rich sherry. Plums, vanilla, caramel, nutty toffee, figs and stewed fruits.

  • Taste:

    Medium, no heat. Sweet toffee, fresh baked bread. Amaretto and toasted walnut. Really rich toffee again. Pipe tobacco. Musty and sweet. Rich currant, black berry, fig and plum.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet and rich. Musty still, lots of sherry and rich cocoa starting to develop.

  • Overall:

    Hot damn. No wonder blends were popular in the 80s. This was an incredible look back in time to a product that is nothing like you see today. I'm honestly going to look for more of these at auction, now that I know how good they are.

  • Score:

    7
