Whisky Reviews for Grant's The Family Reserve

29 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 66.99 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 72 points Administrator

    This is a decent and appealing Blended Scotch that offers a bit more than its competitors in the low-price range. The nose is soft and light, featuring toffee, citrus notes and hints of cinnamon. It's very much a Speyside style of a blend. Grant's Family Reserve tastes strong, sweet and spicy, and there is an apple note coming through. However, it's very young whisky, and the occasional metallic note can't be hidden. As a mixer, Grant's goes well into Coca Cola. Yet, this whisky can certainly be drunk neat, if your expectations are in accordance with its price.
