Grant's Signature, 40%

Price: $29 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Brian Kinsman's new creation was inspired by their founder William Grant, with a remit to create a malty blend of character. Digestive biscuits, malt, honeycomb, and confectioner's chocolate melted over a bain-marie. It's a satisfyingly rich dram, well-structured with a great mouthfeel that wanes with natural dilution. Banoffee pie, caramel biscuits, and maltiness deepen to flavors of coffee bean and molasses, leaving a teeth-coating finish of black coffee. (UK and France only)£18
