Whisky Focus - Grant's 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish Review

Grant's 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish


30th July 2018
Grant's Cask Edition 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish to be released later this year.

Grant's 8 Year Old Sherry Cask FinishGrant's 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish is a soon to be released new permanent addition to the Grant's Cask Editions whisky range which I suppose you could say replaces the discontinued no age statement Grant's Sherry Cask Finish.

So how does the new 8 year old Sherry Cask Finish stand up against the old no age statement expression, I can't comment on its quality yet as it wont be released until later in the year but I have posted the official tasting note below to wet your appetite.

Grant's 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish spends eight years ageing in oak barrels before it matures further in Oloroso Sherry casks handpicked from Spain by Grantís Master Blender, Brian Kinsman.

Going by the quality of the fresh fruity and now discontinued no age statement Sherry Cask Finish I have high hopes for this new 8 year old expression and I will certainly update you with my thoughts on it when I do get a chance to taste it

The Grant's 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish is bottled at 40% ABV, 70cl bottle, and will be available later in the year with a RSP of £21.00

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A balance of green apple, blossom and a soft vanilla oakiness enveloped in a gentle sherry spiciness.

Taste: An immediate oaky vanilla sweetness is counterbalanced with rich malty notes. A few drops of water bring out deep, dried fruits and subtle woody spices.

Finish: Sweet with a hint of woody spice.


You will find Grant's blended Scotch whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
