Comment: An excellent entry-level whisky with very pleasant and non-challenging characteristics. A classic Speyside flavour profile - although the taste is more of ex-bourbon barrel rather than the sherry cask characteristic of the region, however the quality of the spirit is what shines through in this expression. The taste is refined and elegant which may be thanks to the slender purifying stills of the Glen Grant Distillery, in any case I would recommend this dram to anyone new to Scotch or wants a pure easy sipping Speyside - 88/100.
