Thanks for your review. Can you compare the Glen Grant 16 to Glen Grant 10?

This sounds like a slightly more peppery version of Glenfiddich 12 YO.

Hello Victor , Thanks for the post , I have tried the Glen Grant 10 and find the Glen Grant 16 slightly better, more vanilla , peppery and a little richer fruit. I have read your review of the 10 year and think you are spot on, I would expect that you would score 16 similar to what I have had. The Glen Grant is similar to the Glenfiddich 12 with pears dominating the palate but the GG 16 has a little more depth and more peppery. I bought this for approximately 100.00 Canadian per bottle ,a little overpriced in my opinion. There are many more expressions that I would purchase ahead of this one.

On another note ,I have read many of your reviews and it has guided me on some purchases , namely Connemara Cask Strength. You have also renewed my interest in bourbons and rye whiskey. Please keep posting reviews , they a very enjoyable , informative and helpful.

Thanks much, @cclward, both for the Glen Grant comparisons and for the kind words about my reviews. Regarding the Glen Grant 16 I have shied away precisely because the Glen Grant 10 left me very underwhelmed. I am glad to get feedback on the subject. I am sure that I would like to try some Glen Grant 16 at some point..., and definitely before giving it any further consideration for a bottle purchase.
