Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Grangestone

Grangestone – describing flavor subtleties in kinda like nailing Jello to the wall, not an easy deal.  This Highland dram is copper  hued  and truly mellow on the nose, without a single hint of the dreaded Jello.  I found complex floral and fruit notes with a whisper of peat. The distilling team in Ayrshire finished their whisky in Sherry casks and that  worked its usual magic.  The finish was brief  but enjoyable and this is a very drinkable single malt and a bargain to boot. Keep the ice and water away as that would spoil your drink.  I rate this vanilla soaked dram a solid seven. Now let me get back to my messy work with the hammer.

    Curious about how you came to taste this generic non specific scotch.
    With so many excellent scotch whiskey distilleries why choose this?
    Seems nice enough but brotha this is not too self scotch

  2. Hey Scott, I think there are enough followers that would enjoy this whisky, not a boat load of character, but good enough for the right crowd….thanks Ken

      Sure, I assume for some it is a good daily decent affordable scotch but my man as a Scotch fan I only expect reviews of top notch tasty accessible quality scotch whiskey…not some off brand blend of a variety of non named whiskeys.Keep up the good job. Do us proud.

        That is my goal…..a side note, one of my longtime followers , and a fan of my photographic style, is a teacher with 2 kids and a limited budget. He frequently asks for budget friendly options and I’m sure he’s not alone…. cheers and thanks for the comment….
