Grant’s Triple Wood

Grant’s Triple Wood (40%, OB, 2018)


What they say

Many whiskies take their flavour from just one cask, but we mature Grant’s Triple Wood in three different types of wood: Virgin Oak cask provides spicy robustness, American Oak lends subtle vanilla smoothness and Bourbon refill offers brown sugar sweetness, resulting in a smoother, richer, mellower taste.

Official tasting notes:

  • NOSE Complex, clean with notes of ripe pear and summer fruits
  • TASTE Balances vanilla sweetness with malty and light floral fragrances
  • FINISH Long and sweet with a subtle hint of smoke

What I say

Sampled during the #GrantsWhisky tweet tasting held on 12th September 2018 with Grant’s Whisky and @TheWhiskyWire

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Amber gold (10/20), medium-fine slowish tears, leave fine legs.
  • Nose: Sweet and perfumed, buttery and creamy toffee, buttered salted popcorn, fresh pear and apple, a little green banana, coconut and vanilla, grainy but pleasant.
  • Taste: Light cereal and fruit, mini apple pies/tarts, becomes a little oilier and buttery, coconut and oak wood.
  • Finish: Quite short, sweet and sour, subtle fruits.


A little grainy but decent flavours for an entry-level blend. Enough in here to stand up to mixing this into a long drink.

Score 70/100

Don’t take my word for it:
