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".

tastes like moonshine

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

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.

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

Loving it. Very affordable and worth every penny +.
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.

cool and mild recommend highly to anyone that drinks scotch

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

3rd March 2014

22nd January 2014
You should keep a bottle of this in the boot of your car........just in case you run out of Petrol !

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
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
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
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
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
£17.99 @ my local shop, bargain if you ask me. Drink it with ice & it's like nectar
24th May 2013
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
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.

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!
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!

can we get money back for this horrible whiskey
24th November 2012
Needs a mixer to drink it which does not make sense for a single malt
3rd August 2012
Stay away from this. This is the worst whisky i have ever tasted!!
11th July 2012
doesn't smell good, taste good and as a malt whisky lover, this isn't a genuine malt. UNDRINKABLE!!!
2nd July 2012
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
Fruity nose. Peat is almost undetectable, smoothness belies its young age. Oaky with bourbon undertones.
