Single Malt “moonshiners,” smugglers, and brothers John and James Grant got their legal permit to found Glen Grant in 1840. Over the years the place has been filled with colorful characters, including the famous James Jr. who inherited the distillery in 1872. Known as “The Major,” he owned the first car in Scotland, was the first to wire a distillery with electricity, pioneered taller stills, and traveled the world promoting the brand. The 20th century brought more growth along with mergers and acquisitions. Today Glen Grant is owned by Campari — the Italian spirits giant — but they still produce fine Single Malts in the Highlands north of the River Spey.

Glen Grant 12 Year Old is a newer addition to the lineup. For decades, the mainstay of the brand has been it’s crazy-popular 10 year old Single Malt — that’s why the paisanos in Italy purchased the company. In 2016 they added three more agings, including this one. The 12 Year Old is everything you expect from Glen Grant, but with the flavor profile and strength turned up a few notches. The palate is deeper and more complex, and the ABV is upped to 43%. If you like Glen Grant 10, the 12 will rock your dram even more.

The name “Grant” is one of the most used in the world of Whiskies. Glen Grant is a Speyside Single Malt, but so is William Grant & Sons — they’re not the same. And there is a William Grant & Sons division making Canadian Whiskey, and another making Grant’s Blended Scotch. And just to confuse us even more, there is Samuel Grant Bourbon in Kentucky.

Troy
Troy,
Bought based on the other reviews and they are correct - this might not be the most complex or ambitious of drinks but it is well balanced and highly drinkable. The flavors all work well together and it comes across very smooth. Could be a good introductory scotch or serve as a good base for a home blend.

Kay,
It's amazing that a 12 year old Scotch can be so easy to drink! The nose gives you a blast of fresh apples and sweet butter. The Scotch rolls smoothly from the tip of your tongue and down the back of your throat. Sharpness is minimal, and any kind of spiciness or bite is delivered softly. The well balanced mouthfeel is a great medium for delivering its sweet almond and honey flavors. It's definitely not the most complex or sophisticated Scotch, but it's simply "yummy." I highly recommend it as an introduction to Scotch since it delivers the quintessential Speyside flavors while being very palatable. It's also great for seasoned drinkers who need a break from other heavy hitting Scotches. This one will last like apple juice to you guys!

Aaron,
The flavor of this Scotch is good and I give it a 6 without water and a 7 with water. The second brand of Scotch I've tried, it's easier to drink than the Kilchoman Machir Bay. I would've given a higher rating if it was smoother.

Bites but good.

Glenn,
More complex than the 10 yr. Chewier mouthfeel. Packs a little more punch at 43% ABV. 46% ABV might have been worth a ten. Still, a nice sipper.

Ryan,
ooo, my my, daddy likey! today this and a different, very smokey, bottle showed up. comparing the two, both have a lot going on, butt the Glen Grant has BALANCE. the sweet, the spice, smokiness, and dried fruit, they are all there. rather than one or the other screaming above all the rest. Highly recommend
