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.
