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.
Don’t take my word for it:
