  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 79 points Administrator

    Older, independently bottled Glen Grants can be of exceptional quality after having slept in oak barrels for a few decades. This 10-year-old expression, however, is a very simple and undemanding Speyside Single Malt. The aroma is understated, sweet and fruity with hints of pears, nuts and fresh hay. Spicy, young and spirity in the arrival, there are notes of lemon juice, red currants and honey before dry refill cask bitterness takes over. Wood tannins and faint vanilla characterize the rather short finish. A cheap beginners whisky without any complexity.

    This whisky is not bad. In his way he is almost perfect.
    Only he is pretty boring.
    I think that's the most boring single malt I've ever had.
    The small "Major's Reserve" is a composite of joie de vivre and character compared to this one.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, mild, soft, pear and caramel. In the mouth then caramel, sweet fruit notes and some wood. Sweet finish with caramel and oak. A pretty round, but good all-day Speysider.

  4. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    An easy to enjoy, uncomplicated malt. It's a bit young without being immature. The smells and tastes are enjoyable, but brief and fleeting.
    • Nose
      Creamy candied lemon peel and sweet osmanthus blossoms, light malt with a faint black pepper and menthol note, light vanilla and caramel, fresh plums and guava, and a touch of almond fading into the alcohol burn.
    • Taste
      Mocha and creamy raspberry liqueur , a touch of caramel, baked vanilla custard, candied orange peel, light floral honey and black pepper, and wave of fresh plums and apple liqueur.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate and coffee, bittersweet floral (osmanthus), and drying oak tannins mixed with a very faint bitter-almond-esque maltiness.

  5. Dris scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Absolutely nothing is outstanding about this dram. It doesn't give you much, but it's not half bad. Very tame.
