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.

Top reviews for Glen Grant 12 Year Old:

— It was very smooth. I liked it alot

— 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!

— Simply amazing! Best 12 yr old Speyside in the market. Smooth and delicious

Light and sweet

The nose leads off with a buttery caramel apple scent. Taste has some spicy cinnamon notes at the front, giving way to orange zest. Adding water brings back some of the butter smoothness.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Tasty. Light, fruity, caramel, sweet, but lacking some malt backbone. Got this for $30 at Costco - definitely worth it.

Ivan,
This quickly became one of my favorite scotch. This was my favorite from tasting this side by side with the glen grant 15 and the 18. While the 18 was marginally smoother, the 12 had much more flavor.

Zane,
I've hear the 18 year is extraordinary but it's hard to imagine it being better than this. Love this stuff.

arne,
this is actually a really well balanced scotch. not very peaty or smokey if that’s your thing, but the prominent apple note is actually a nice change
 
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.

Nathan,
excellent balance, smooth, I liked the initial bite and eventual smooth palate pleaser! Highly rated!
 
Aaron
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
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.
 
Adrian
Adrian,
Amazing! Incredibly impressed.
 
Ryan
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
