Ghosted Reserve 26 yo

Ghosted Reserve 26 yo

Rare Cask Reserves, William Grant and Sons
Vatted malt - Inverleven, Ladyburn
Pale green
42% ABV

Nose: Fresh cut grass, white grapes, dark chocolate, brass polish, vanilla, hints of leather. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, loose, airy, slippery. 
Tasting:  Sour . White grapes, fresh cut grass, dark chocolate, green tea, almonds, hints of rhubarb and custard. 
Finish: Short. Orange peel, white grapes, almonds, green tea, hints of teak wood. 


A vatting of 26 yo Inverleven and 57 yo Ladyburn. I think it's spent a bit too long in the cask. Subtle flavours, slightly tart, a lot of grape and wood. But I was in the mood for big bold whisky, and somehow this didn't do it for me at all. Good stuff, but not the right night.


I like this.
