Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 12-year-old

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.35 points

  1. Pollenflug scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      My first impression is of a fruity-sweet freshness, which is gradually joined by spicy oak notes. The focus is clearly focused on the bright, refreshing fruit flavors. Freshly sliced ​​green apples, which are not yet ripe and tart with an acidic impact, followed by pears, green grapes, citrus notes, juicy grapefruit, vanilla, hints of blossom honey and peppermint and spicy notes of wood. The alcohol content of 43% is barely noticeable. Uncomplicated, harmonious and pleasant.
    • Taste
      With a silky soft texture, the 12-year-old Glen Grant dresses pleasantly in the mouth. A beautiful symbiosis of refreshing sweet fruits and spicy wood notes floods the palate. The mouthfeel dries slightly after a few seconds. Freshly squeezed lemons and orange peel give the malt a slightly sourish sting. Green apples, vanilla, honey, hints of almonds, a bit of malt and spicy oak oak notes follow. Again, the overall aromatic picture is consistent: sweet-sour, fresh and tasty - simply uncomplicated and delicious.
    • Finish
      Medium long and sweet and spicy. At the finish line, a fine sweetness builds up again. Again, I find the freshly cut apples, honey, malt and vanilla again. Finally, the spicy oak notes intensify and leave a slight dryness and delicate bitterness on the palate.

  5. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very clear, fresh and fruity. Of course a little less intense and more effective than the 18-year-old; but the value for money is outstanding. As good as this twelve-year-old Glen Grant are not many twelve-year-olds.
    • Nose
      A fragrant fruit basket with grapes, apples (Kronprinz, Chloräpfel, Topaz), pears and a few vanilla pods. Very nice, so to speak, the boyish edition of the still young 18-year-old Grant.
    • Taste
      The malt conquers the oral cavity with a pleasant freshness. The juicy sweetness of pale fruits continues on the palate, complemented by delicate honey notes and a beautiful oak aroma.
    • Finish
      A very fine maximum medium-length finish, which turns from the fruitiness towards oak.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Delicious fruity, tasty summer whisky, not boring or arbitrary, I really like, for ~ 30 € 'a fine thing.
    • Nose
      very pleasant, fresh and fruity, not snappy, green apple, pear, later it gets a little sweeter, goes slightly towards honeydew melon, orange ... later a light, dry woody note with some cinnamon
    • Taste
      fruity-sweet (as expected not as fresh-fruity as the nose), orange / apricot jam, apricot crumble cake, with milk chocolate, malt and light spice, very tasty
    • Finish
      medium length, malt, dark chocolate, some wood and seasoning

    • Nose
      Pleasantly fresh. Pears, light grapes, some mint. Vanilla.
    • Taste
      Soft. Pears, white chocolate, subtle spices. Honey, lemon cake. Medium.

  10. dRambo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: sweet-sourish-spicy woody aromas, especially the acidity occurs pleasantly, vanilla, citrus notes, intense grapefruit, malt notes flash, it smells oily / creamy Taste: sweet, tingling complex spicy oak, beautiful sweet and sour balance, well-integrated alcohol, astringent with the second sip, spicy, malty, then citrus notes, vanilla on the finish, lemon zest, becoming drier, slightly pleasant bitterness
    Conclusion: noticeably better than the 10 for me, especially for the price, the distance to the old 16er is not so big for me, the gift box with glasses (special version) comes amazingly high quality in this price range
