What's in a name? Glen Parker Single Malt whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glen Parker Single Malt whiskey, rather than whisky.
Fruity nose. Peat is almost undetectable, smoothness belies its young age. Oaky with bourbon undertones.
De-icing fluid at best. Absolutely revolting. I would have awarded -574 if I could have. THIS IS NOT DRINKABLE- and it is NOT single malt.
doesn't smell good, taste good and as a malt whisky lover, this isn't a genuine malt. UNDRINKABLE!!!
Stay away from this. This is the worst whisky i have ever tasted!!
Needs a mixer to drink it which does not make sense for a single malt
can we get money back for this horrible whiskey
I am definitely not an expert, in fact, far from it. My original exposure to these spirits was high school when we would get a bottle of Fleischmans, drink it to get drunk, and listen to music. I didn't even touch the stuff again until I became a cigar smoker and a friend treated me to my first glass of JW Blue....for the first time I recognized what good scotch was...it didn't even burn as it traveled down my throat!
Since JW Blue is a little too rich for my wallet, I have been trying every scotch on the market, hoping to find something close. I cracked open my first Glen Parker tonight as I lit my cigar, took a sip, and was astonished! This is a nice scotch!! Nice nose, nice body and slightly sweet. What a surprise!!
My last bottle of single malt was Glenfiddich and that tasted medicinal. This is clearly far superior! Unsophisticated drinker? Not really. Just not a snob. I will enjoy this bottle and buy another one as I wait patiently for someone to give me a JW Blue for a gift. Try it. You'll like it!
It's a solid 2½/5.
Taste is smooth, kind of what you get with famous grouse or jameson.
If you are drinking whiskey because you saw some of your cool friends do it, or because you saw it on TV, don't waste your money with this one, buy daniels or some other ***t. If you want to explore the world of single malt whiskys with a lower budget, try this!
Forgot to add the stars, here we go.
I bought this in a shop in Chester. It was reduced to £25. I like non-peaty, smooth whisky and have paid much more for whisky. I think it is very good. Whisky, like art, divides opinion. Definitely not the rubbish I had read about and never heard of it until i tasted some in the shop. Nathan.
I got this as a gift. I thought my son-in-law was nicer than this. This was very disappointing. I will be gad to get back to a better tasting whisky. Will not buy this.
