The Girvan Patent Still 30 Years Old. Image courtesy William Grant & Sons. The nose on this single grain is smooth, but still complex with notes of sandalwood, cedar shavings, fresh bananas, coconut, grilled pineapples, and hints of vanilla, oak, and honey. The taste starts off spicy and woody with clove, allspice, sandalwood, and oak, but tropical fruit touches of kiwi, mango, and banana come out as the spicier notes start to fade. The finish has those lingering spices, along with the sandalwood, oak, and tropical fruit notes for a nice, long finish. (February, 2015)
