Grant's Sherry Cask Bottling Note

A blended whisky from William Grant & Sons, finished in Oloroso sherry casks. Lovely balance.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite light and fruity. There are notes of nut oils and mixed peels, hints of honey and a little oaken note. The palate is of medium-body and quite well-balanced. There are notes of sherried peels and sultanas, winter fruitcake with spice and developing oak. The finish is nutty and long with dried fruit notes.

Grant’s Cask Editions - Sherry Cask Finish Reviews

Highly recommend

This peaty whisky is gangsta. Taste is as smooth as a thot's inner thighs. And it warms you up as nicely as cuddling with yo girl by the fireplace in the middle of winter. 5 stars.

A surprise

This was the first whisky that made me realise that blended need not mean revolting. Mellow with Christmas cake and Demerara.

Lovely

As a relatively experienced single malt lover and recently financially handicapped, I found myself pining for a decent dram at a price point that fit my new limited budget and saw the Grant’s sherry finished blended on the shelf next to the basic Grant’s at a 15% premium so I decided to take the plunge. Expectations are everything in life and I refused to allow myself to fall into the trap of expecting single malt brilliance. That being said, I approached the experience with an eye to just having a “decent” dram with dinner and to my surprise I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so that before I knew it half the bottle had been consumed. It seemed to me to be a poor man’s Fiddich 12 with lovely caramel, barley and sherry notes on the nose and a very lovely semi-sweet palate presence that was very different from most of the very “grainy” blended whiskies that I had previously experienced. In fact, I decided that it would become my new daily dram in my new constrained budget lifestyle. I began reading as many reviews as I could find and most were not very complimentary. My own experience was very different. A very enjoyable entry level priced whiskey and I highly recommend it as an alternative to many blended whiskies and some overly hyped and pricier single malts.

Superb.

Has an amazing character for a blended. Is the best scotch at its price point on the market, and is much superior to many of the standard single malts. Very nice sophisticated finish.

Enjoyable, lively nip.

The Grant's Sherry Cask Reserve is another diamond. The wafting aroma once cracked open and poured brings this nip to life even before your lips get to the glass.. the use of the sherry casks for maturation is instantly evident as you first taste this sweet and smooth whiskey. The fruity aftertaste is well pronounced and a welcome reminder of the lively sup just had. Not overpowering, there is a tinge of smokiness about this one which leads to a well balanced drink. Very enjoyable..

Great value and a fine dram

At first a bit rough but after time in bottle down by half and a few days rest quite luscious - adding only a tiny bit of water accentuates the barley malt sweetness and caramel elements. As a single malt guy I was skeptical at first but have come to appreciate this blended whiskey.

Excellent for the price

I do not know why I bought this but I am glad I did. Very smooth and ranks with the best imo.

2nd June 2017

Good tasting

Is a good option for low budget. Tasty and better when opened the flavors with 1cc of vermouth and few cold water.

Absolutely Delicious

I had this whisky given to me by my son at Christmas. I usually drink single malts but right from my first taste of this I was hooked.It is so smooth and gives out such absolutely delicious flavours I just had to buy some more.Superb.Congratulations on such a lovely Whiskey

Harsh - doesn't taste any different from original grants

Harsh smell and taste and doesn't taste any different from original Grants.
I purchased this instead of a better whisky (IMO) based on reviews and wished I hadn't - not a fan.


20th June 2016

Fantastic

Very very good whiskey. The taste, nose, and very smooth. Well balanced, prefer it just on the rocks. Sadly becoming scarce in SA.

30th April 2016

Surprisingly good

I wouldn't normally buy Grants for anything other than mixers but this is a lovely nip for the money :)

15th April 2016

Run of the mill Whisky

Pretty good run of the mill whisky. Quite light and balanced. I prefer teachers because of the added peated malt but that seems to have been removed from Tesco at the moment. Would recommend.

A pretty good scotch for the rest of us

I am someone who can not afford the $100 a bottle scotch, but we do enjoy having a healthy dram at the end of the evening. This is one of our "go to" scotch. It has some good flavors on the nose but what we really liked is the peat / smoke after taste. We are big fans of Johnnie Walker Swing and this really reminded us of a "younger" Swing. This is a great inexpensive scotch for under $20.00 that did not have much burn. Splash some JW Swing and it changes the chemistry completely and makes it a pretty smooth sit out and reflect on the day dram.

Buy when on offer and it's hard to be disappointed with!

**Compulsory "This is not a single malt statement!* I really wanted to try the "Ale Cask" edition which I believe partners this blended whisky with Innes & Gunn scottish ale casks. Unfortunately the shop didn't have it, but did have an offer on this version (Sherry Cask). If you are looking for a Macallan or Balvenie{Doublewood} experience from this, then you're in the wrong demographic. Like many I enjoy a dram or two a day, this does not make me a raging alcoholic, but I do get through a bit too much liquid gold! Considering this: I have been exploring the world of blended malts over the last 12 months. Grants have proved to be a very consistent and reliable distillery, and in the whole deliver many strong contenders in the "competetively priced" category.

Sherry Cask; This is a young whisky but skillfully blended. The nosing is subtle oakish-ness and citrus fruit, with just a hint of spice. Make sure to leave long enough that some of the initial overpowering alcohol can evaporate!
Tasting; Not a great deal going on over the standard "Grants Reserve" release, one or two of the harsh characteristics of "Reserve" have been shaved off. There is a very mild dried-fruit character;think orange/lemon pith {Xmas cake}, but you have to work it around your tongue for that to emerge. Something tells me that this may have only been resting in sherry casks for 6 months (if that!). All in all, I enjoyed this blend. Measure your expectations...and your glass!! 7/10.

Grant's Sherry Cask Finish

The sherry casks must be pretty well used because I get hardly any sherry on this. Ale Cask Finish is light years better than this.

Grant's sherry cask,good value for money

I'm more of a malt man myself,but because I am fond of sherry matured whisky I bought this blend.I have to admid it was very nicely balanced,
with some raisins and a sultana touch.Quite a good value for money.

nice treat

cheap n cheerfull, tastes very nice.

15th January 2014

Well

When I actually got my self a bottle I found it to be horrible, yet when I was given a glass with out knowing what it was I thoroughly enjoyed it. Shows how much preconceptions can influence taste.

5th January 2014

Good

For £10, this is amazing. A great everyday dram for those that want something sherried but can't afford to drink Macallan, GlenDronach or any of the others everyday.

21st October 2013

Very surprised ...

Having just recently started trying various malts, Balvenie 12 year double wood, Aberlour Malt and the beautiful Knockando 12 year old Malt , this was a real surprise for being a non malt and a sort of just of the shelf whiskey. Very warm and enjoyable neat or with a sprinkle of water. As said in the other review I purchased this on offer at £12.89 for 70cl, which considering the taste is provides is astonishing value. Will for certain purchase this again.

13th April 2013

Probably the best measure per pound.

I keep coming back to this one. Its a lowly blend - I can hear all the pure malt drinkers saying.... Much as I like the single malts, this is a superb every day blend that really hits the spot for me. It even seems to come on special offer in many places at seriously cheap prices.

If you've not tried it yet, I think both you and your wallet will quite enjoy it.

25th March 2013

Brill for a blend

Nice through th nose light n fruity with a slight blended smell If that makes sence
All the taste of grants which is my favourite blend of whisky though has sweetness because of the sherry
cask with fruity notes,take it through the middle of the mouth for the best flavour.
All in all good whisky for a blend 6/10 not a malt so don't expect perfection!!
