Glen Grant The Major's Reserve

James Grant, "The Major", was only twenty five when he inherited the Glen Grant distillery in Rothes, Speyside. A forward thinking and unconventional man, "The Major" personally designed the innovative tall slender stills with unique purifiers to achieve his vision of a seductively smooth, fruity, rich, superior Single Malt. Glen Grant The Major's Reserve displays a light golden colour with a soft bouquet of delicate apple note. This superb Single Malt offers a fresh and vanilla palate with a slightly dry and hazelnut finish.

Nosing: VanillaMaltBarleyAppleBananaZitrus
Light on the first nosing. There is no alcoholic smell on the nose, but initially hits with vanila and malty notes. After couple of small sips an apple started appearing with a little mix of a banana and very light citrus notes.

Taste: SweetHazelnutOil
Initially smooth sweetness turns into creamy, maybe even buttery nuttiness.

Finish: Hazelnut
Short finish with hazelnut aftertaste.

Comment:
As it's artificially coloured whisky I was quite surprised with light straw colour. Light, sippable whisky with pretty smell of sweet vanila, apples and light notes of other fruits like banana or citrus.
Simple, flat, sweet and cheap (in the meaning of price). There is nothing wrong with this whisky, it's good. I'd drink it, if I'd like to drink something nice, but it does not have anything that I'd like to think or talk about.
