The Grand Old Parr is a 12 year blended whisky that is as good if not better than any of the other mass market blended whiskies out there. It's presentation is totally unique. On the nose, the whiskey is malty, very scented, cake-like with aromas of linseed. On the palate, it is Big. Notably firm-bodied. Malty. Cereal grains. Toasted sesame seeds. Demerara sugar and raisins. Honey. There even seems to be a hint of chilli in there somewhere. The finish is Soothing. Long. Developing slight lemon grass and peatiness.
