What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Glen Grant 10
Quote 1 “Malty, fruity, strong pears and zesty but just a tad. It is quite similar to Bushmills 10 single malt but smoother towards the end, I prefer it over B10. A minuscule drop of water releases more fragrance but at 40% it’s still robust, just don’t exaggerate with the water.
It’s a delicious, very good nose, mid-finish, what’s not to like?”
Quote 2 “Can you believe that this is often cheaper than the awful Glenlivet Founders Reserve? This is an outstanding whisky for the price. The quality is on par with Glenfiddich 12 although it is less fruity with more malt and caramel notes. You can’t go wrong with this one.”
Quote 3 “It’s like sipping melted vanilla custard. It’s pretty magical. I’m drunk from this right now.”
