During this pandemic, each month, I tried to buy a different brand of reasonably priced whisky for me and my dad to try. We both luv whisky and it’s a great way for us to enjoy some father-son time. Furthermore, I know a good whisky can range from $120+ CDN but sometimes I feel that you don’t always need to drink high end whisky. I am curious at the price range of $27 to $40, what type of whisky brands can provide a smooth whisky while at a price that brings good value.
This month, I went to LCBO and looked around and decided to give Grant’s Scotch Whisky to try. Grant’s Whisky is made in Scotland, United Kingdom.
From Grant’s official website, it says, “Many whiskies take their flavour from just one cask, but we mature Grant’s Triple Wood in three different types of wood: Virgin Oak cask provides spicy robustness, American Oak lends subtle vanilla smoothness and Bourbon refill offers brown sugar sweetness, resulting in a smoother, richer, mellower taste.”
First of all, I enjoyed the triangular bottle shape and it has a strong finish and a bit of a smokiness to it. It’s a nice bottle of whisky.
Note: LCBO normally sell this Grant’s Whisky at $32.95 but they took $5 off during the limited promotion was a no brainer for me to give this whisky a try at $27.95.
