Note: In July 2018, it was announced that this marque will now be called Grant's Triple Wood while the recipe remains the same.

Tasting Notes

"The intensity of the nose isn't very strong, but what you do find are wood spices, grains, and the slightest hint of smoke. The palate has a moderate amount of cinnamon, dried hay, and a touch of caramel. The whisky ends on the bitter side without a lengthy finish."
