Signatory Vintage 12 Year Old Glen Grant

Glen Grant

All of the Glen Grants I have tasted have generally been well rounded, light and crisp – except for a 37 Year Old Duncan Taylor bottling that I still dream about. This particular Glen Grant falls in line with the majority.


12 Year, Distilled 1997, Bottled 2009
Cask No. 3884 Hogshead
Bottled at 43%ABV

Color: Light Amber

Nose: Malty candied sweetness, white grapes, a fresh apple tart, ripe pears.

Palate: Very representative of the nose – almost the same thing, additionally some vanilla, oak dryness and white pepper.

Finish: medium, white pepper spice.

Comments: I like! This is a well rounded malt, fresh and vibrant. It isn’t going to blow your mind and leave a lasting impression but it is a great relaxing dram to enjoy on a warm day.

We also posted some notes on the OB 10 Year Old bottling here.
