Glen Grant - The Major's Reserve
Smooth and not to complex...
Very thin. No body. In a blind-fold test, you would be hard-pressed to
identify this as scotch. I doubt 80 proof label. The government warning is unnecessary for this stuff as I dont think it would endanger anyone
to take a nip.

This was the first "proper" whisky I've ever sat down around a table and maturely tried... So bear in mind the lack of experience! But, I guess it's true, it really is great for a newbie like myself. Not too complex, very smooth. Like I said, my palette is hardly honed so i won't comment on the notes, but for me it was a pleasant and perfect introduction to the world of whisky that certainly inspires one to delve deeper.

If you are looking for a good value summer aperitif, a malt to can drink with ice,then this could be for you. Smooth light and fruity with some salad notes this is the opposite end of the universe from my favourite malt Lagavulin 16. If you want more flavour, I recommend a light blended whisky such as Ballie Nicholas Jarvis, J&B or Cutty Sark.

A brief inspection of the label confirms the presence of caramel and the reason behind the rather conspicuously dark colour of this no age statement bottling of Glen Grant. It drinks with something of the straight-ahead maltiness of a Deanston, albeit a watery one. Actually, I'm not entirely opposed to the idea of wateriness as a characteristic - though I won't make the mistake of equating wateriness to lightness in this case, as this isn't particularly elegant. This whisky makes the oily character of a whisky like Laddie Ten seem positively revelatory. There's a note of something akin to Juicy Fruit in a otherwise faintly peppery and honey-rich finish. I drank this alongside Glenlivet 12 as an experiment and to my surprise found that I preferred it - finding in the finish of the Glenlivet a little too much of a disagreeable bitter wood-influence.

What do you expect for the price.
At £20, I would sooner drink this than pay £15 for Bells or Grouse. A very drinkable whisky, comparable with Singleton or Glenmorangie and I have tried whiskies at £90-100 a bottle.
No it is not a powerful whisky, it is only 40%, but you don't always want a strong one. You are getting what you pay for and it is good value.
