A gentle mouthful
Reviewed by John Fegan on
Calling this a standard grain offering is a little unfair and yet it’s an excellent example of what we expect from a wheat whisky, light, fruity and with just a hint of pepper. An incredibly light dram and one I’d recommend trying.
Nose: Butterscotch, vanilla, melon and slight hints of pepper
Palate: Incredibly light yet with a gentle burn, vanilla, pepper and butter
Finish: Short, creamy and floral

Average Price £30
Part of Signatory’s single grain collection the Girvan 1998 is one of the only bottles that can still be easily found, and for two good reasons; there are very few single grain whiskies on offer and the Signatory collection are definitely among the best. While Signatory’s grains are often overlooked in favour of their cask-strength offerings the same enthusiasm and expertise is evident.
