One of the most awarded Grant’s ever — a twelve year-old triple-wood dram of blended Scotch glory

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 has been doing quite a bit of bragging on their new Triple Wood 12 Year Old. And well they should. This little beauty has been bringing home the Gold. And we’re not just talking about one Gold Medal, we’re talking about four of them plus a 98-point rating.

First of all you have the excellent blending palate and instincts of master blender Brian Kinsman — ensuring that each element has been aged for a minimum of a dozen years across three wood types. There’s refill Bourbon casks, virgin American oak, and ex-Sherry butts. When you put all that together you get a winner delivered in a new stunning black bottle.

Smartass Corner:
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.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
