Grangestone 18 Year Old Single Malt
The Grangestone 18-year-old may be a good deal, but a bargain price shouldn't be the main selling point.
First Look: "Beautiful golden amber in color with a tint of copper."
Nose: “Bright fruit, spring flowers, honey, dried black currant, dusty oak, and toffee.”
Bright fruit and spring flowers pop first. With a second sniff, honey and dried black currant emerge. Dusty oak and toffee add an additional layer to its complex nose.
Palate: “Creamy toffee, light oak, vanilla, baking spice, yellow raisins, and a slight dryness.”
The entry showcases creamy toffee and a hint of light oak that turns to vanilla. After a few seconds, baking spice and yellow raisins emerge to bring a slight dryness to the mid palate.
Finish: The finish is long and dry on the mid palate with fruit and toffee framing the tongue.
Fair Trade: $60
Verdict: The Grangestone 18 Year Old Highland Single Malt is a good effort, but I was looking for more complexity and depth of flavor typical of an 18-year-old Highland Single Malt.
Don’t get me wrong; this is a good whisky but I expected more. However, at $56 a bottle, you’ll be getting your money’s worth.
