A great whisky, no question about it. This one is good both for celebration or after a rough day. I find the balancing act dexterous between sweet and sour and salty and smoky and oaky and fruity and I could go on and on...

I love this blend and for the price it has few equals, if you like a smooth easy-drinking dram. It is also with keeping if you find yourself stuck with a harsh malt that needs taming. Adding 25% Grants to the offending malt can do wonders.

This used to be called "Standfast" and is just as good

An absolute classic. Good for the beginner, and for the veteran too.
I agree and echo all of the positives about it here. On the plus side furthermore: it isn't a sickly sweet blended whisky - it is very well balanced without becoming bland. Has been for ages at a very consistent quality level; just be careful with the caramel colourant guys.

I definitively prefer JW Red Label which is more on the fresh/fruity side!

Family Reserve from Grant's really is a very decent blend and amongst the best you will find for this price. Certainly good enough to be enjoyed neat. If you haven't tried it yet, give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

A superb blend, really, really complex. You can have hours of fun with it, exploring it. I'd even venture to say that I got more nosing and tasting enjoyment out of glass of this than I could out of a lot of single malts. While Teacher's still has to be my firm favourite, this comes a very close second.

Grant's is a very well constructed blend, fruity and oily with just a hint of a smoke. Excellent value for your money.

I don't drink anymore, but when I did Grant's was my drink of choice. It's smooth and mellow, and can be mixed with milk.

I like a grants.. (although it hasn't taken over from grouse as my fave standard).. I introduced my step daughters boyfriend to whisky and coke a few years ago.. he bought a bottle of grants, which at that point i'd never had, adn it went beautifully with the black sugary stuff!

Steve, there is a reason this whisky tastes like "bourbon wood," and that is because it is aged in oak barrels(casks)just like bourbon, and probably in oak barrels which were used in aging bourbon, because here in Kentucky we are only allowed by Federal Law to use the oak barrels "once" for the making of bourbon. Then, the barrels are shipped to Scotland to be used over there in the making of Scotch.
