The Glen Grant 10 Year Old is not much more expensive than the Major’s Reserve, but is still an entry level malt. It matured on bourboncasks as well, but was then recasked for a final period of a year in sherry casks.

The nose offers white orchard fruit (green apples and pears), with hints of vanilla, immediately upholstered with oranges, toffee and clear hints of dried grass. Nutmeg and cinnamon. But it is all very lightfooted. A bit too light, to be honest.

On the palate, it shows a light body with loads of vanilla, breakfast cereals and some woodspice. Even some sultanas. The sweet malt stays in the lead and again turns this into an effortless malt.

The finish is short, light on pepper, apples and oak, with a slightly bitter finale.

This is as easy as the NAS-version The Major’s Reserve (which I favour). Still less than 25 EUR.
