Tasting Notes From The Glen Grant Website:

TASTE: Apple pie crust, caramel and vanilla
FINISH: Lingering fruit with subtle hints of spice

Colour: Bright Gold

TransparentSmoke: My first nose said pineapple. Then I lost it behind the honey and couldn’t find it again. I have gone back to this whisky a few times over the last few weeks and it does the same thing to me each time. Pineapple and then honey. It’s a very easy drinker.

This is a relatively new release, making it’s debut in mid 2016. I like it and would recommend. Doing the research for this article, I found out that there is a Glen Grant Aged 12 year Non Chill Filtered sold only via Duty Free Shops. On their web site they refer to it as a “Travel Exclusive”. Tasting notes add Butterscotch so keep your eyes open! I need a bottle…. for science.

Oh and It’s Glen Grant with a space in between everywhere it seems, except their logo.

And ignore the cookies in the pictures, a mans got to eat.

Our Score: 79/100
