One of the most famous blended Scotch Whiskies in the world aged for eighteen years and finish in Port casks.
William Grant was a bookkeeper working for a distillery company. He and his seven sons and two daughters worked together to build their first distillery — Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown — with the first Spirit coming of the stills on Christmas Day, 1897. Then in 1898 disaster struck the Scotch business with the famous Pattison’s bankruptcy — then the largest Scotch Whisky blender. To Grant, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. He launched Grant’s Blended Scotch that same year. The company has been in family hands continuously since then, expanding to become one of the largest family owned and operated Spirits companies in the world.
Grant's 18 Year Old draws from their large portfolio of distilleries in Scotland. The master blender combines this collection os Single Malts and grain Whiskies with bits collected from other Scottish drams to craft the flavor profile. Those Spirits were aged a minimum of eighteen years before being married and finished in ex-Port casks, resulting in a Spirit of great depth and perfect balance.
The current master blender at Grant’s is Brian Kinsman. His predecessor was David Stewart who held the post for forty-seven years making him the longest serving master distiller at a single company. A record that may last for quite a while.

The palate opens sweet with notes of vanilla and caramel sauce over sultanas, wood, and warm tobacco leaves.
The finish is long and lightly sweet with a hint of something smoky in the background.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Grant's 18 Year Old Scotch Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
