Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
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.

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.

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

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
