Insider knowledge: Glen Grant 10 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glen Grant 10 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Medium. Vanilla, toffee apple. Herbal, hint of smoke.
Palate: Firm. Sweetness, fruity, vanilla. Gentle peat, malty.
Finish: Dry, supple peat, toffee.
A beautiful, light coloured speyside malt at a low price.A best seller in Scotland and Italy and a great introduction to malt whisky,not too peaty or salty ,with a lovely mixed plate of vanila and apples.Superb.
One of my favorites - excellent to start off the evening, as it is so vey light & fruity, with a delicate nutty finish. Simply delicious! (Not for the smokey/peaty crowd...)
I love that this whisky is gentle and smooth with just the right trace of peat and firmness. This was in fact the connoisseur's recommendation for a beginner to single malt whiskies, and I am pleased the choice.
My drink of choice when have a cigar used to be the yamazaki by suntory. That was until I discovered the Glen grant. Personally I prefer nonpeaty and light whisky when paired with a good cigar so that I can enjoy a good puff.
When not having a cigar my choice would be a good Ardberg or Laphroaig.
