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.

    Let's keep this simple, great smell, light taste that leaves you wanting more but never delivers. If you can get it on discount then try it. If not, pick up a bottle of the Glenlivet.

    I fully agree with Mr Serious,this,in my opinion is an ill advised step for purely commercial reasons towards the degredation of single malts by a distiller who should know better,I would go as far as speculating that this was tantamount to the offloading of a large amount of surplus barely aged stock in the guise of a so called light easy drinking malt for beginners.If I was a simple beginner,I would be put off for life.

    A decent single malt, somewhat sharper than I expected, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Great for the price.

    For a single malt very sharp with a strong aftertaste. Disappointing, no better than any leading blended whisky.

    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.

    A whisky that does not have a lot of complexity. However, a very good beginner's drink. Adding a fair bit of water improves the texture dramatically and turns it into a very mellow drink.

    A very good summer malt light and easy. great value.

    I thought this was an excellent Speyside whisky and very agreeable to the palate. Not at all harsh, but rather simply smooth and most drinkable. I will be sticking with this single malt from here on in!!
