Don't be fooled by the price, Grant's Family Reserve is a great, complex and well balanced whiskey.
The Nose: You can smell the barrel from which it came, oak. Tangy molasses, a cloud of sucre a la creme and then candied smoked bacon to to seduce you a little bit.
The Palate: Gentle with melted confectioners' sugar. Dry Maplewood with candied sap. A film of smoke, sadly the bacon stayed behind. Honey dew melon.
Body: Light with beaded oil
To Finish: A burning honey dew scented candle. Fades away efficiently.
I keep this scotch in a decanter at home. It is inviting after a long day and sets up a comforting ritual. I don't feel like it needs to be announced. Unlabelled and ready for the eye. And for the price, it's easy to keep it readily available.

Completely agree with your feelings about Grant's FR. I tried this bottle for the first time a few months ago and just fell in love with it! Has definitely become one of my favorite go-to drams.

Grants FR has always had a special place in my heart. They move massive quantities of this in Cameroon and it is the "peoples" whisky of choice over more marketed competitors. It is inexpensive (equilvalent to $18 USD/750 ml) and you can also find oversized bottles (4.5 L) to serve during the holiday season.
