Grant’s peated blend finished in a trio of American casks for a layered, nuanced experience.
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 Triple Wood Smoky is a completely different thing altogether from Grant’s “normal” blend. First, it adds a few peated Whiskies into the mix, delivering distinct notes of beach campfire. Second, it’s aged in three different cask types — refill American barrels, first-fill Bourbon barrels, and virgin American oak. This dram is more complex and nuanced that it’s sister drams but manages to retain is balanced, sweet character. This makes it a great daily sipper for the experienced dramsman and a entry Scotch for peated newbies.
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.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is complex and soothing with orchard fruits — apple and pear — over a layer of sweet smoke, anise, marzipan, and steel-cut oatmeal.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens smoky, but quickly mellows into a complex profile of melon balls, more apples and pears, Meyer lemon zest, vanilla toffee, and baking spice.
The finish plays out long with the entire cast of flavor characters taking a bow on stage.
