Many whiskies take their flavour from just one cask. Aged initially in oak, this whisky has enjoyed a finishing period in Caribbean rum casks. Grant's master blender, Brian Kinsman, was curious to see the impact rum would have on the classic Gran't flavours as part of the Cask Editions range.
The result is smooth, rich and sweet - evidence that great things happen when you work together! The tropical flavours from the rum cask go well with the orange in an Old Fashioned - see recipe below.
