Glen Parker Bottling Note

An easy-going single malt from an unnamed distillery in Speyside, Glen Parker is ever so slightly peaty.

Glen Parker Single Malt Reviews

Avoid to drink straight, buy for that friend that insists on malt whisky and coke/lemonade/etc.

A marmite Whisky if ever there was. Yes it’s smooth but the nose and taste when neat are a bit ‘challenging’, no alcohol burn on the tongue or throat but mostly off flavours of candy and caramel. Improves slightly with water or ice, reminds of middling bourbon. Will use for cocktails or cooking, which defeats the point of malt whisky, it should’be gone into a blend like Whyte and Mackay. Difficult to rate 0.5/5 for a straight malt, 3.5/5 for a whisky to be mixed.

Nothing interesting

I got it as a gift, and... It looks drinkable only with cola. On the nose it looks interesting. But palate, aftertaste nothing memorable.

10th December 2018

Quite alright

I feel that it is a soft whisky. Single malt at a little above red label price. Just bitter enough to remind you that you are drinking a whisky. Has the entree and exit feel to. Suggest to keep a bottle for single malt lovers. Cork or cap notwithstanding. Cheers

Good beginners Speyside.

It not any where as bad some people would have you believe. But it is a middle of the road Single Malt Speyside. However for the price/quality ratio. It is very good for beginners like me. So if you getting started in learning about a Scotch, this a nice whisky.

Nothing special

I would rather have a mid price blend, if it aint got a cork don,t expect too much.

27th June 2018

Buy for the experience, and still regret wasting such a small amount of money!

Oily, fishy, and with a horrendous aftertaste that lingers, even after you've been outside to dump the bottle in the bin (where it truly belongs!). Bought it, as I'd never tried it before, and both the father-in-law and I agree it is possibly the worst whisky we've ever tried (I live in Elgin, and have sampled a wide variety of Gordon and MacPhails excellent bottlings).

Real malt whisky, but not very good

Tasted this when it was the "whisky of the day", and thus a bargain, at a pub near Glasgow. My first impression was that it was real whisky, but just very poor quality. I assumed then that some Glasgow entrepreneur had gone around distilleries buying up the cheapest barrels that the distilleries were least proud of, and blending into this. Bizarrely, the other "whisky of the day" was the very opposite: a very good, but clearly imitation whisky, that was drinkable but was never a malt whisky.

Great malt

Just bought a bottle of this in duty free in coratia, was surprised to see it's a screw top for a single malt! But honestly as another reviewer has said it's a great whiskey if you've never had a malt before. Will definitely buy more of this easy going whiskey 👍👍👍

13th June 2017

Great fruity single malt.

Lovely single malt. Very fruity on the nose with a long lasting spicy/caramel taste. Would recomend, especially considering its price range!

19th February 2017

Stone.

Slight orange on the nose. A reasonable palate, maybe a tad bitter on the finish. Not bad for the price. Bought for me as Christmas present. Yes I would willingly drink this. Some reviews far too harsh.

19th December 2016

a good alternative

It's mild and easy to drink, but finish is a little bitter.
If you are bored with the mid price blends, if are looking for smth different, it is a good alternative for you. But do not expect much for the money.

Mr Jeffrey Rees

I have been a whisky drinker for over 30 years. I bought a bottle of Glean Parker yesterday and was amazed with if. It is so smooth, not a lot of "burn" and has a lovely taste, will definitely buy again!

5th March 2016

Not bad!

Ive had just about every scotch out there, for the price its not bad, flavor and aroma off the bat were reminiscent of most blended whiskeys, but the subtle pear notes satisfy the sweetness needing to balance, typically i am an avid glenn moray drinker, and when the local shipment sold out, i gave this native texan a chance, smooth, yet straight to the point. Absolutely will buy again.

16th January 2016

You can do worse at the price point

Finish is a little rough but you can do much worse for you money.

7th October 2015

It's a matter of personal taste, and how you feel

I truly enjoy Glen Parker. For my palette it has a slightly sweet taste and is great for sipping after a day at the office.

On other occasions, I enjoy a stronger-tasting malt (although the Abelour-highly peaty taste is too strong for my liking).

I as sorry to hear that it is out of stock at LCBO here in Canada.

1st October 2015

Cheap price, Great taste

I have been drinking scotch since 1958 and I bought a bottle by chance, cost $26 in Texas. On ice, it was fantastic. Smooth and with a sweet aftertaste, light peatiness. This is one of the the cheapest scotch I've purchased and far from the worst!

Canuk whisky taster

Those who say they find Glen Parker undrinkable are reacting more to the low price tag than to the dram, and would probably enjoy toilet swill if it carried a three-digit price tag. Glen Parker is certainly not one of the top three, but it is far ahead of the bottom three. This is a fine whisky for its price. It has a clean taste, a smooth finish and has subtle notes of cedar, wildberries and gentle malt. It is a perfect starter scotch for someone who wishes to develop an appreciation for the whiskies, and their various complexities. Glen Parker is a gentle drink that is perfect for those occasions when others are having a beer or a wine.

Really the only element that Glen Parker does not have is "snob appeal".

22nd May 2015

ouch

tastes like moonshine

4th April 2015

pretty bad

Well I just had a taste of this and it is extremely bad. A very sweet finish. Don't waste your money.

28th February 2015

ignore the snobs a nice easy scotch

with ice or a dash of water it's an easy going smooth scotch, not peaty or smoky with and with little after taste. Maybe a little heavy on the honey flavour. not embarrassed to have it next the 17 year old Glenlivit single malt and Hibiki blend in my liquor cabinet.

25th January 2015

Mad As Haters

Some disgruntled someone posted a couple crazy negative reviews. Ignore them and try this Scotch. You will truly be pleased.

26th December 2014

Buy It

Loving it. Very affordable and worth every penny +.

26th December 2014

A cure for a sore throat

Not because its good, its like a whisky flavour cough medicine! Its not fun to drink has an abundance of bad qualities ie. Lip burn, not smooth (how some say it is is beyond me!) Mixed tones and no real character. Save yourself the hassle check your local supermarket for whats on special offer if your not wanting to spend too much , buy it and thank yourself lucky you avoided this garbage.

disgusting, good for window cleaning

18th October 2014

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent

What a single malt! My line manager brought me this little beauty back from his holiday. Have never tasted such a good single malt in a long time.
WELL DONE Glen parker

10th May 2014

Such Divided Opinion!

Haven't tasted this Single Malt ever, but reading all these opinions, really makes me want to! am curious to know what taste can produce such extreme reactions!!

6th May 2014

Not good

Has an ok nose but an underdeveloped, off taste and finish that borders on rancid. Look elsewhere.

5th March 2014

very smooth

freind bought me a bottle back and its a very nice tot

3rd March 2014

lord thunder and lighting

well I bought a bottle of this crap and I NOW KNOW what SEWAR WATER TASTES LIKE

22nd January 2014

Geezus

You should keep a bottle of this in the boot of your car........just in case you run out of Petrol !

20th January 2014

I like it

I buy Glen Parker when it comes up on special here in Australia. It's reasonably unsophisticated but it's smooth, has a hint of peat flavour, slightly sweet and is easy to drink. Not top shelf, but much nicer than cheap to mid price blends.

9th October 2013

alan

waste of money,tasted like cheap bells definitely not a single malt.i should know i have tasted loads over the years.don't buy it.

8th October 2013

Surprisingly good

bought this bottle by chance. cost $26 in the suburbs of NY. on ice, it was fantastic. smooth and with a sweet aftertaste. light peatiness as well. this is absolutely the cheapest scotch I've purchased and by far from the worst!

17th September 2013

Ron

Had it last night at a friends house. I thought it was quite smooth and drinkable. Not very peaty and some fruit in there. Neat no water worth a go.

16th June 2013

Stay away

This is a terrible whisky: you would be better of with a cheap blend that would come in at least £10 cheaper. Nothing to recommend it. None of the Speyside qualities you might expect.

14th June 2013

Larry David

£17.99 @ my local shop, bargain if you ask me. Drink it with ice & it's like nectar

24th May 2013

Boris

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.

28th March 2013

Glen Parker bought in March 2013

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.

Forgot to add the stars, here we go.

26th January 2013

Sonny

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!

26th January 2013

Wow...these guys are outta their minds!

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!

glen parker

can we get money back for this horrible whiskey

24th November 2012

Avoid

Needs a mixer to drink it which does not make sense for a single malt

3rd August 2012

Glen Parker

Stay away from this. This is the worst whisky i have ever tasted!!

11th July 2012

you must be jokin

doesn't smell good, taste good and as a malt whisky lover, this isn't a genuine malt. UNDRINKABLE!!!

2nd July 2012

Glen Parker

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.

10th June 2012

Good Drink

Fruity nose. Peat is almost undetectable, smoothness belies its young age. Oaky with bourbon undertones.
