Glen Grant 12 Year Old Review

6th June 2016

Review of the new Glen Grant 12 Year Old.

Glen Grant 12 Year Old ReviewThe new Glen Grant 12 Year Old is one of three new Glen Grant expressions launched in June 2016, the new whisky is presented with a bronze label and tube which is part of the distillery's contemporary new look colour coded packaging allowing you identify each expression in the Glen Grant range.

The Glen Grant 12 Year Old slots into the Glen Grant core range just above the existing 10 year old. It is bottled at 43% ABV and has an RRP of 37.40

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose:  Pear and some distant orange, some sweet vanilla toffee.

Taste: Gently tangy, apple, pear, distant orange, mild barley sugar sweetness, a little spiciness, some creamy caramel.

Finish: This light malt has a refined medium length finish with some gentle fruit, spice and a little oak

Comment: A wonderful, very enjoyable lighter style Speyside whisky which is sure to please, a lovely tangy fruitiness, barley sugar sweetness, gentle spiciness. Would make a great pre-dinner dram or ideal for a warm summers evening. Ideal for those new to the complexities of single malt whisky and the connoisseurs looking for a enjoyable mature gentle style Speysider.

The Glen Grant 12 Year Old is priced around 37.40 which is a great price for a whisky this good and with an age statement to qualify its price which is rare for new whiskies at this end of the Scotch malt whisky price scale. The Glen Grant 12 Year Old will be available from specialist whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange

SMW Score 85/100
