Description

Glen Grant 12 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glen Grant Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from crisp, Scottish barley, much of it still harvested from the same Morayshire fields that John and James Grant used nearly two centuries ago. Once the barley has been malted and mashed, it is fermented in washbacks made of Oregon Pine. While wooden washbacks are more expensive and difficult to maintain as compared to stainless steel washbacks, they absorb more heat generated during the fermentation process and thus, create a lighter and more rich whisky. 

Following fermentation, the wash is twice distilled, first through Glen Grant's copper-pot wash still and then again through its spirit still. Each still is equipped with a purifier, which acts as small condenser and causes a portion of the evaporating vapors to be pumped back into the pot and then re-distilled. This purification process — Glen Grant in the only distillery in Scotland to use purifiers in both distillations — results in whisky that has a signature fresh and malty flavor.

Tasting Notes

Honey, pear and apple with hints of almond and citrus on the nose. The palate has delightful flavors of Apple pie crust, caramel and vanilla. The finish is lingering with fruit and subtle hints of spice.

Proof 86 (43% ABV)
