Scotch Whisky - Blended

Grant's 12 Years old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Would take ice and ginger well. Very good blending.

Grant's 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Seems more mature than its age. A rich, complex blend.

Grant's 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Clearly the 12 Years Old's bigger and darker brother.

Grant's 25 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A delicate and enticing whisky which would have benefited from a higher strength. When you want to try a little tenderness.

Grant's 25 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
More lifted than the 12 and 18. The perfumed note is rather dominant.

Grant's Blended Scotch Whisky Signature
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 It comes across as a well put together blended whisky with a high malt content.

Grant's Family Reserve
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Does exactly what it sets out to do.

Grant's Sherry Cask
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Masculine. Rather austere, aloof.

Grant's Stand Fast
Blended - Scotland - 0.00%
7 Not even a whispering whisky. Almost silent! I appreciate light delicate whiskies but there is a limit to self-effacing characters!

Grant's The Family Reserve
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
A teasing mix of sweet and dry. One of the best ‘standards'.

Grant's Voyager
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Proof that blends are not inferior to single malts!

Greenwich Meridian 2000 Blended Scotch
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Seems like an attempt at an old-fashioned blend, but a bit two-dimensional.

Hankey Bannister 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Solid and dependable.

Hankey Bannister 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
Perky but with lovely balance.

World Whiskies Awards 2009 - World's Best Blended Whisky - Winner

Hankey Bannister 40 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%

Hankey Bannister 40 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 44.00%
Multi-award winning –and you can see why. Mature, complex and elegant.

Hankey Bannister Original
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Lightly peppery coriander seed.

Highland Harvest Organic Scotch Whisky
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Well put together. Not hugely complex, but a pleasant dram.

Islay Mist 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Needs water to open the nose, but the palate is rather simple.

Islay Mist 17 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Cutting this to 40% means it's lost some of its energy. Let's have a cask strength version!

Islay Mist 17 Years Old, Premium
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The Islay aromas and flavours seemed to have almost vanished among the heathery mainland notes in the blending. They were just hiding. I came back to the glass three or four hours later and they had e...

Islay Mist 8 Years Old Manzanilla La Gitana Cask Finish
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
8 That's how to make a great blend! The Islay component dominates, but you can't argue with quality.

Islay Mist Blended Scotch Whisky
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A distinctively Laphroaig-led blend, even though that distillery and this blend are now owned by separate companies.

Isle of Skye 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The aromas and flavours evoke breakfast, but in a farmhouse kitchen with an open fire, rused and dashed by the winds down the chimney.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Isle of Skye 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A beautiful, mature whisky
