Glen Grant 10 Bottling Note

A great beginner's whisky right here from the Glen Grant Distillery, produced in tall pot stills. This 10 year old Speyside single malt, having spent a decade in bourbon casks, boasts oodles of light, malty notes. A top dram for warmer weather.

Glen Grant 10 Year Old Reviews

Harsh overtones and little character

For all the hype I found this to have very little character. I would rather a good blended whisky for the same price.

1st November 2020

Great everyday scotch.

Pleasantly surprised! A lovely summer Scotch to watch the Sun go down with, partnerd with a nice Cigar makes for the perfect end to a nice evening..

Don’t believe the doubters

Beginner or expert it matters not, this is a quality whisky from an underrated distillery. The nose is not particularly complex, however it is pretty faultless. You’ll not find one off note in there. Just sweet fruits and a little spice. The taste delivers what the nose suggests, sweet fruit at the front of your palate, a little spice and move it to the back of your mouth and you will get a little bitterness to balance it. The finish is short and as you’d expect of a 10 year old, it’s not as smooth as it could be, but then the spirt is young. Try the 18 year old if you want more refinement and a longer finish, though the 10 isn’t rough by any means. It’s £30 after all, thats less than a meal out. It will last you longer, taste better and give you more pleasure.

Not Much character.

This is a bit lame. Finnish is quite long, but has nothing else to offer. Don't buy without tasting it. There are bettter choises at the same age range. (R)

7th June 2020

Not for me

Not much charachter. A bit lame. Pretty long finnish, but othrwise not much to offer. (R)

6th June 2020


Awful. Just awful. Better get a decent blend for that price.

6th April 2020

Totally underwhelming

Bought this on the basis of Jim Murray's review, and even though we are talking about a cheap 10 year old, I was bitterly disappointed. Bland, with very little going on at all, I really can't understand how anyone can rate this a good whisky at any price.

28th March 2020

Overall not a bad one

After reading some of the reviews I thought I would try. I was quite looking forward to giving it a go, now this is a cheap whisky in my eyes so for the price I would say its a good one, in fact you can't really argue at all. A 10year old so I expected something out of the dram.

The flavour is OK, there's apple, a sweet texture of honey. Goes does pretty smooth. For me there's not a huge amount going on, but thats not saying its bad at all. The flavours are a quite simplistic, but that actually works in its favour. Does have a nice balanced aftertaste (in fact it's better than I expected but it doesn't blow me away)

Overall the price is its best friend. If it was double the price it would really struggle. Being a budget whisky at 10 years you really can't argue. I will definitely be sharing some of this.

11th January 2020

A great whisky, but not at this age.....

Apples and pears on the nose; rich, fresh barley sugar on the tongue; short, hot finish. The flavour profile of this malt is not dissimilar to many a favoured Speysider, and the quality of the still-signature is unquestionable, unfortunately the overriding impression of this malt is that of an immature spirit that would benefit from many more years in the cask to round off its inherent roughness and develop its complexity (which is probably why G&M's 50 and 60 year old expressions are so widely revered).

At this age and price, there are many better alternatives.

17th December 2019

Worth every penny.

A very nice whisky indeed, and for £30 for a 10 year old single malt as nice as this one is a steal. Lovely drink.

11th December 2019

Great quality

Pine colour. Vanilla and marzipan on the nose which is quite pleasant. Creamy and light on the palate with flavours of toffee and pineapple then comes the oak. The finish is pleasant with apple and pear notes omnipresent. A sterling whisky.

21st November 2019

A point of view.

Very nice and smooth,fruity,vanilla and all that it should be in an understated way - but best whisky ten pounds and under? and with Benriach just round the corner and Benromach just up the road,not to mention Tamdhu a bit further down the way.And then there,s Islay...... .Rest my case.

19th October 2019


Very smooth and fruity

26th June 2019

“Beginner” whisky rant

This whisky is high on my list to buy next, but not tried yet, so no rating. I actually just wanted to chip in and agree with the reviewers who are outraged by the term “beginners whisky”. I actually much preferred Islay whiskies (often referred to as so called “experienced” drinker whiskies) when I was a more inexperienced whisky drinker and just thought “oh nice, smokey”. Now as a more experienced drinker I actually find many Islay whiskies unbalanced, brutish and not particularly well thought through as the blenders do often seem to rely on the peat and smoke to carry the whisky. If that’s your thing, fine. But the terms “beginner” and “experienced” whiskies are a complete misnomer and as the reviewer below says, an utter load of patronising b*llocks.

20th April 2019

Delightful dram

As much as love peat and smoke this is a delightful single malt.

4th January 2019

Dull as a mediocre blend

Soo disappointing. So dull, so little brightness, smooth in boring way. Once tried, forgotten. Sorry for my money.

31st October 2018

Very good, easy sipper

Malty, fruity, strong pears and zesty but just a tad. It is quite similar to Bushmills 10 single malt but smoother towards the end, I prefer it over B10. Minuscule drop of water releases more fragrance but at 40% it's still robust, just don't exaggerate with the water.
It's delicious, very good nose, mid finish, what's not to like?

22nd October 2018

Smooth like silk

I don’t know about this bottle up there, but i had the glen grant 10 with old bottle design. .. Anyway!! ... If you like to drink a smooth whiskey that you down it like water .. smoother than beer? .. Then this is it! Enjoy!

20th August 2018

Brilliant well balanced young water of life

Super dram, it could cost twice as much, no one would complain...

29th July 2018


Gorgeous. Floral. Notes of heather. Almost perfect 10 y/o expression. L

3rd February 2018

Cast away the snobs....

I don't always agree with Jim Murray, after all he scored uigeadail under 90 this year, which is madness. On the other hand, this is everything he's written. It's a belter for the money.
I don't get all these "whisky for a beginner" comments, it's just a drink folks and we all have our taste preferences. There's plenty of people whose first collection are right up there in the Islay months bathers that are supposedly only to be appreciated by experienced drinkers, utter bollocks. There is no such thing as beginners whisky, it's a patronising pile of shite! Meantime, buy this. It tastes great and it's cheap as chips. Bargain!

21st January 2018

You won't go wrong

This is an absolute gem, especially for the price. You won't go wrong buying yourself a bottle to enjoy the smoothness, taste, and light complexities. I always have one on my shelf. It's not like some of the finer scotch out there, but it does very well for itself.

2nd January 2018

Must experience

Got a bottle of this for £21.50 on a special offer. Crazy bargain.

There's a lot going on. If you pour a generous dram to sip slowly it develops nicely in the glass. Malty on the nose, sweet and slightly citrus.

Green apples, toffee apple, orange peel, slightly sweet.

Long finish, hint of nuttiness about it sometimes which is nice. For me, there's quite a lot to experience in this whisky and it's very easy to drink. One I suspect is very easy to find yourself at the bottom of quite quickly.

1st December 2017

Pink Floyd whiskey

Perfect with Pink Floyd. If we didnt know the origin, we would have guessed "Japanese".

11th November 2017

Value baby, yeah!

Can you believe that this is often cheaper than the awful Glenlivet Founders Reserve? This is an outstanding whisky for the price. The quality is on par with Glenfiddich 12 although it is less fruity with more malt and caramel notes. You can't go wrong with this one.

21st October 2017

Smooth, mellow and very enjoyable.

I picked up 1 liter bottle of this on my way in at Sydney (Australia) airport duty free for Aus $65 to consume during my 3-week stay here. I found this whiskey to be very smooth and mellow, with medium complexity and a nice after-taste. Definitely worth buying. Most enjoyable !

20th September 2017

A simple malt...

Absolutely nothing special. Maybe those who never tasted higher priced malts this might be something new but.. come on! It is a pretty simple malt overall. Nothing special. Really!!!

8th July 2017


It's like sipping melted vanilla custard. It's pretty magical. I'm drunk from this right now.

28th February 2017

Nothing special

I cannot understand an exitement about this whisky. This is obviously gòodcrafted drinkable malt. The one you may order in a bar or share with your friends. However I found nothing special or complex or unique about this dram. Just good basic speyside malt

8th January 2017

One of the Best!

One of the best single malt. 5 star rating. Well balance and smooth.

17th August 2016

Love it

Beautiful single malt! Why are you calling it a beginner's ???

3rd June 2016

Really good

I love it very much as I am whiskey beginner drinker. It owns four elements of wine drinking. I loved the balance.

23rd May 2016

fantastic value for money

the only time I tasted GlenGrant was when I was given a 5 cl bottle when I bought a bottle of another distillery.
Was not great at the time.This however thanks to a special offer in Holland of about €27,00 for a LITER is a very
good value for money with a lot of citrus,banana and barley in the nose,and the taste of nuts and fresh brewed tea.Good and complex aftertaste.Just needs a few drops of water to open up.Seems to me like a good malt for
people who are starting savouring malt whisky as a hobby.

29th April 2016

Superb value

A fantastic tasting scotch with a lot of fruit flavors and very very smooth for a 10 year old. For the price, you won't be able to find much better. I've had the glen grant majors reserve and thought that one was pretty bad and almost didn't buy this one because of that but the price was so good that I gave it a shot. Could not believe how much of a difference there was between the two. Just spend a few bucks more and get this one as there's no comparison. This whiskey is easily worth twice the price.

19th April 2016

The pleasant arrival

This gave me an enjoyable floral greeting. It stuck through the tasting and become more enjoyable. It smells as it tastes more than most bottles. Your first whiff will be your indicator.

9th April 2016


Très bon whisky

7th April 2016


It's by far one of the smoothest single malt's I've had. The Glen Grant 10 Year Old is delicious!

31st March 2016

Love from Houston, Texas

Scottish whisky is new territory for me. I had the pleasure of visiting Scotland this Christmas. My Scottish friends gave me a bottle of this whisky to bring home. I just had some, and I'm already a fan. It's very smooth and has a nice mellow taste. I'll probably keep a bottle on hand from here on because it has a nice warmth to it.

28th December 2015


One of the smoothest whisky, that I ever tasted. I think the best non-peated 10yo whisky!

13th November 2015


Easy and rewarding, simple without being shallow. A great whisky for a beginner, and those of us more seasoned. Great neat or with a dash of pure water, it opens up a bit. I get a very nice 'clean' experience from it. Hard to beat for the dollar.

12th November 2015

Refreshingly fabulous

Found a bottle in the cupboard - not sure where we got it. Opened it with trepidation - now we are hooked. Where do we buy more in Australia?

13th September 2015


I'm new to whisky, and have purchased a range of bottles quite recently. This one was the last one I tried, and I think this one might be my first love! Makes me grin like an idiot in anticipation.

If anyone has suggestions for a similar one to this, please let me know!

10th March 2015

Outstanding !

I'm unabashedly a single malt fan and 3 of my absolute favorites are Talisker Storm, Highland Park 15 yr old, and Lagavulin 16 yr old! I didn't know I'd add a fourth until I just tried this whiskey....outstanding! when I'm looking for a very nicely balanced mellow dram for myself or company, this will now always be in my cabinet to reach for!

20th February 2015

Glynn alexander

It is one of the smoothest single malts I have ever tasted

20th February 2015

Whisky Lite

Very drinkable ! Dont expect to have your palette blown off by this. Its smooth, tasty and not overly sophisticated. A young whisky that more than delivers for its price. BUY IT, you cant go wrong

11th December 2014

Glen Grant 10 year old

This was the first single malt I ever bought, and it is still the best, in my opinion. Even the undated version is a delight.

23rd July 2014


Best value 10 year old single malt bar none. Compares with much "better" bottles in my collection light and full of fruit, great nose and wonderfully smooth. it has no right to be this good for £30

27th June 2014

I like!

Ok I am a Single Malt guys since I was 18. This seems like I have come home and have found what I was looking for. So easy you cannot believe it. I had friends hooked on it.
Can't say much more than ... My Scottish heritage comes out here. Have to try more than the 10 year

31st May 2014

One of the best

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.

11th April 2014


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.

11th March 2014

Perfect daily Dram

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

28th February 2014

Easy drink. Great starter malt

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!

27th December 2013

in memorium

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

11th November 2013

a good standard by which to judge single malts

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

23rd August 2013

rich and fruity yet light in weight

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.

28th May 2013

perfect with a cigar

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.

15th May 2013

Love this whisky! Perfect for a beginner like myself!

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.

13th May 2013

Love it!

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...)

3rd March 2013

Do try it.

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.
