You may get a whiff of Glen Grant 18’s hype before you open the bottle: it was recently named the second best whisky in the world by the 2017 edition of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
Glen Grant 18 is light gold in color. The whisky’s aromas are fruity and pleasant, with notes of dark red cherry and green apple. It’s remarkably gentle on the tongue—one of the softest whiskies I’ve ever tasted. But despite that lightness, its mouthfeel is rich, starting with oak notes that build into a light spice before finishing sweet with hints of rock candy and cinnamon.
Glen Grant 18 is a strikingly delicate spirit. Those looking for a pure, simple experience that gets down to the very essence of whisky shouldn’t miss this one.
