What's in a name? Glen Grant 10 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glen Grant 10 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Medium. Vanilla, toffee apple. Herbal, hint of smoke.
Palate: Firm. Sweetness, fruity, vanilla. Gentle peat, malty.
Finish: Dry, supple peat, toffee.
Out of the 20 or so single malts I've had so far, this one is just about as good as any. All the right tastes are there for my preference: a little peat, a little bite, and a good fruity taste.

This is a great whisky to drink on a daily basis. My cabinet is filled with the likes of Dalmore 18 and Dalwhinnie 15, yet this one is always between them.

So happy I bought a litre bottle. Just so smooth, so drinkable. What's not to like? For this price!?

Started drink whiskey back in June and have fallen in love with the stuff. Tried this for the first time last night. Great little tipple. Very smooth. Nice sweet notes. Will be getting a bottle very soon!

a cracking single malt that i was introduced to by my father who died in 1999, i started drinking it as a memory to him but it has become such a firm favourite it is now the only whiskey i drink

this is a very nice example of an expertly-crafted whisky, not overdone with smoke & oak, sherry and bourbon, but an example of what good things can be done with the fruit of the barley - light but not oily, full-flavored but balanced, aging done to make the sum total flavor marry seamlessly, not to feature any single flavor note - not the only whisky I'm drinking, but it's always in the cabinet

Glen Grant flies under the radar but don't let it fly under yours. The 10 year is spectacular. Finally tried it based on the Jim Murray award for best single malt 10yrs and under in his 2013 bible, and am I ever glad I did. Top drop.

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.

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.

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...)
