Grant's Cask Editions Ale Cask Finish, 40%

Price: $20 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Buttercream, fresh-cut bread, taffy candy, citrus, and a distinctive hoppy note from the craft ale casks. Charmingly smooth but quite light bodied, there is warmed bramble fruit, bitter grapefruit peel, and plenty of peppery spice. This stands up well to other ale-cask finished whiskies, but in the Grant's range there are better whiskies with more to offer.
