Grants Sherry Cask, is a great entry level product into the world of sherry cask finished whiskies. Finishing off a scotch in a sherry cask isn’t new. In fact, it’s a category growing pretty good in single malt. To have a blend finished off in a sherry cask is a new thing, and this is where Grants Sherry Cask is really starting to put Grants back on the map.
Tasting Notes of Grants Sherry Cask
Nose: Quite light and fruity. There are notes of nut oils and mixed peels, hints of honey and a little oaken note.
Palate: Medium-body and quite well-balanced. There are notes of sherried peels and sultanas, winter fruitcake with spice and developing oak.
Finish: is nutty and long with dried fruit notes.
Good taste combined with competitive price – this gets our thumbs up.

Grants Family Reserve is a blend of about two dozen different scotches, which sounds like a lot until you realize that some blends out there mix a blend from several dozen different scotches. The core of the blend, however, is Girvan grain whiskey.
Tasting Notes of Grants Family Reserve
Nose: Clear and breathes of pears and apples.
Palate: The flavor is light and floral with some honey sweetness, just a hint of vanilla and some mild smokiness.
Finish: That peat smoke remains in the background for the finish, which is as mild and sweet as it was on the palate.
This is a good starter scotch. It is a cut above scotch whiskeys like J&B, and just sophisticated enough that a novice can learn something from the drink without being overwhelmed. It is also mild and consistent, two virtues that make Grant’s approachable.
