Grants Rum Cask Finish Blended Scotch Whisky Review

Grants Rum Cask Finish Blended Scotch Whisky A blended Scotch finished in ex rum casks, so soft and sweet, with added sweetness, this sounds right up my street! This dram was tasted as part of a tweet tasting featuring drams from the new Grants range of blended Scotch.

I tend to quite enjoy rum matured or finished drams, so a light blended scotch finished in rum casks, that does sound pretty damn sweet and tasty to me.

This has fruity notes, tropical fruit, along with rum babas and other pastry goods, some tangy orangey meaty notes also, really quite an interesting dram this.

Available from Supermarkets for around the £15-18 mark this is sweet, and tasty, and one i'd happy sip away at whilst watching a film, reading a book etc.

Thanks to The Whisky Wire for including me in this tweet tasting.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Rum babas straight off the bat, slightly plasticy, lychee and dried apricots, sugary for sure Demerera definitely but theres a butterscotchy muscovado also, orange sauce from duck, slightly meaty

Palate

Some tangy fruit peels, orange zest, apricots again, the sugar has gone and the meatiness is back but its in a butchers spice rub, with a touch of wood spices.

Finish

Drier, tannic,
