Grantís Triple Wood Review


30th July 2018
Review of Grant's Triple Wood the new name for the Grant's Family Reserve.

Grantís Triple WoodGrant's Triple Wood is not an new whisky, it is the new name for Grant's iconic signature blend, Grant's Family Reserve. The renaming move is part of a overhaul of the Grant's blended Scotch whisky also sees three new whiskies joining the range.

The reasoning behind the move to rename the firmly established and very popular Grant's Family Reserve to Grant's Triple Wood is to emphasise the whisky making process and the three types of cask which goes into creating the smooth, rich and mellow whisky - Virgin Oak which provides spicy robustness, American Oak lending subtle vanilla smoothness and Refill Bourbon bringing brown sugar sweetness.

Grant's Triple Wood is bottled at 40% ABV and will be available from all major retailers in 70cl and 1 litre bottle sizes at a RSP of £15.00 (70cl) and £19.50 (1 litre).

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: An enticing balance of sweet malt, slightly oak infused pear, vanilla and a delicate floral note in the background.

Taste: Smooth, malty rich, a lovely gentle vanilla sweetness, delicious pear and a touch of raisins, a little oak and just the very faintest hint of smoke.

Finish: Long, the vanilla transforms to caramel, the pear fades leaving a little drying oak.

Comment: A new name but still the same quality and most importantly, enjoyable, everyday dramming whisky and you are unlikely to find a better Scotch blended whisky at this price point. Simply a lovely balance of different oak aged grain and malt whiskies.

SMW Scotch Blended Whisky Score 88/100
