Interesting fact… North British 1997 - Single Grain Collection (Signatory) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be North British 1997 - Single Grain Collection (Signatory) whiskey, instead of whisky.
I bought a bottle of this more out of interest than anything as I have never had a straight grain whisky before and I didn’t have particularly high expectations but what a find! This has to be one of the best value whiskies going. It’s quite straightforward, not much complexity but has a wonderful character, it’s sweet but not overly so, the best flavour comparison I can give is vanilla ice cream, really good (Cornish perhaps) vanilla ice cream and it’s actually quite similar to a good bourbon than anything. Very impressed.
