Whisky Reviews for Grant's Triple Wood

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 74.48 points

  1. Danksy scored this whisky 72 points Member Senior

    Better than I expected from Grant's.
    • Nose
      Charred smoke, Highland peat, plus the classic grainy profile of the base Triple Wood. I actually didn't enjoy that base one at all, but this Smoky edition does have some interesting character to it.
    • Taste
      Smoke to Highland peat, then a fair share of grainy notes that surprisingly taste better than the base edition. I'm very tempted to say I actually like this blend.
    • Finish
      Smoke and peat closes out the dram with a moderate finish for its class.

      Final thoughts: I tried this after Teacher's and I can firmly say this is a bit of an upgrade, if you're looking for a peated blend. The peat here is very light and mellow, but nicely weaved into the classic Grant's profile, which usually has nothing interesting to offer. I would consider buying this again for mixing.
