Glen Grant 10, 40% ABV.

glengrant 10

Appearance – This whisky is light gold in colour, it’s quite viscous, and has slow thick legs.

Nose – Initially It’s very light red fruits, vanilla, pineapple and lemon slices. There’s honey and cereal notes too, like a breakfast combination.

Palate – The palate is quite light and thinner than I expected, initially there’s white pepper, honey, lemon and toffee. Sweet pineapple slowly arrives, and oak brings up the rear. There is smoke in here, but it’s so light.

Finish – The finish is It’s short to medium in length, it slowly builds up. It’s quite white pepper spicy, again with honey and pineapple.

My thoughts – As an entry level Single Malt whisky it’s pretty decent, it has some loverly flavours, but it lacks the depth that a more experienced whisky enthusiast would be looking for.

Would I buy a bottle? – Again, for someone getting into whisky, yes, it’s a decent drop, for someone with more whisky experience, no, they’d be expecting more.

Notes – I have found reference to it having colour added and being chill filtered.
