The Whisky Bible, Jim Murray’s authoritative guide for whisky connoisseurs everywhere, has rated single malt specialist Glen Grant, a world best.
The flagship 18-Year-Old Single Malt has been chosen as one of the world’s finest three whiskies for 2018, competing against all styles and ages of whisky, made not only in Scotland but in Ireland, the US, Canada, Japan and Australia. This is the second time this single malt has starred on the coveted list of Murray’s favourites for the year.
It’s also the second time in succession Glen Grant’s 18 Year Old has been crowned Scotch Whisky of the Year and Single Malt of the Year, as well as best single malt in the 16 to 21 year age category, winning the same titles it did in 2017, and prompting Murray to say: “Once more Scotland owes a debt of honour to the celebrated Glen Grant distillery which again displayed Speyside whisky in its most sparkling light.”
“We’re thrilled by Jim Murray’s continued confidence in Glen Grant, despite the growing competition in the whisky sector”, said South African marketing spokesperson for the brand, Charlene Engels. “It is a great coup for the 18-Year-Old to make it once more onto the list of top three whiskies, a line-up that transcends all categories of style, age statement or provenance.”
