  1. Hsh scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    gentle grape flavor
    weak sherry

    Sweet honey pickled biscuits, soft and sweet

    The finish is cinnamon and very faint feet.
    It's not very short, but instead it's too watery ㅠ I can't help it with my weight class

    The scent is more delicious than expected. The taste isn't particularly special, but it doesn't have a lot of corners, so it's best to take it to a gathering (first the number is big) It's a pity I'll buy one or two more bottles
    Toffee like Valentine's 21, there is no intuitive sweetness like caramel

  4. MaroFF scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Something great, very good, for little money. Grant's 18 YO is a revelation for me, it is another item to buy !!!
    Number 2 (after Ballantine's 21 YO) for blended whiskey.

  6. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2020] I had this dram during a local community tasting "blends only".

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5. My notes state an autumn floral (nosing) profile (asters and the like) and a nice bitter-sweet taste. The wood is rather strong (a little too strong for my taste buds) but this might be okay for modern whisky drinkers.
