Thanks to @talexander and @mrallen for the reviewed samples. Grant's Ale Cask Reserve was finished in Innis & Gunn Ale Casks. There is no age statement. I do not know how long the reviewed bottle has been open

Nose: strong apple plus citrus are the main themes. This is agreeably sweet, with bananas and butterscotch. There is a little spice. Pleasant

Taste: the nose translates with strong sour balancing the sweetness. This tastes very strongly of Cask Strength Glenfiddich 15 to me. You can make out beer influence when you look for it, but without prior knowledge I doubt that most would perceive beer influence

Finish: long finish, but goes more sour and bitter (hops?) than I would like

Balance: this is an interesting variant on the Grant's theme. It is a nice change of pace, and the sort of distinctive whisky which can fill a particular mood or craving

@Victor thank you for the review. It's not a bad blend with a different cask. I expected to like the Grant's Sherry cask more, but liked this one more so.

Interesting. I happen to like Innis&Gunn beer, and i do find Grant's to be decent so after reading your review if i find a cheap bottle somewhere (tax-free maybe) i think i'll pick it up. Cool title btw!
