Glen Grant 15YO debuts in Singapore

by Alice Brooker

Speyside whisky The Glen Grant has released its 15-year-old single malt in Singapore.

The Glen Grant 15 Years Old Single Malt Scotch was crafted by master distiller Dennis Malcolm, who was recently celebrated by the brand with the launch of a 60-year-old bottling. It was created to mark his 60 years in the whisky trade. The 15-year-old non-chill-filtered bottling sits at 50% ABV, and was matured in hand-selected first-fill ex-Bourbon casks. Malcolm said: “We take so much pride in creating our unique golden liquid, and we’re proud to see that the consistent quality of these beautiful products continues to be recognised by industry competitions, particularly on the anniversary of our 181st year. "We are thrilled to see this exquisite premium single malt Scotch shine like this.”  On the nose, the whisky presents aromas of citrus fruit and toffee, while the palate boasts flavours of spiced pear, apricot and vanilla. The finish is nutty, with delicate notes of fruit. The Glen Grant 15 Years Old is available to buy in Singapore at select venues including Dragon Chamber, Public House, One Place Bistro Bar and Sweetea Caffe. Individual bottles may also be purchased at Cellarbration, Redmart and Amazon for RRP S$125 (US$92). Last month, bottle number 88 of Glen Grant's oldest single malt to date fetched CNY380,000 (US$58,922) at an auction in Shanghai, China.
