Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Rhubarb and Custard sweets, candied lemon, zingy apple and a general youthful freshness.

    Palate: Soft and oily, with lots of freshly crushed grain, apple skin, sour lemon zest, and a light and sweet touch of sponge cake batter.

    Finish: Warming, with citrus zest, vanilla and a delicate touch of dark oak.

    Comment: Light, fresh and fruity – a great aperitif dram.

    I was a bit broke after visiting the chandler so instead of my usual Laphroaig I took a punt on this at half the price and I am delighted with it, I will be putting a bottle on the yacht.

    On the nose I liked it. Green apple was the first thing that came to mind. I missed a little more sweetness in the palate though. Not my favorite pick.

    "approachable malt ideal for beginners" Its more than that. Its a very pleasant good value single malt. I start with malt like this and move on to others. Would not be without a bottle.

    I bought the Glen grant beacause there was a 30% discount and I must say i''m heavily disappointed. I would do the other single malts wrong if I was to compare them to this one.

    Glad I discovered The Major''s Reserve. A lovely single malt with great taste. I think I will have to try all the Glen Grant range.

    A modest light whisky good quality with a modest aftertaste, a favourite whisky on the continent. Has good value for money which is important to get good sales abroad.
