Glen Grant 12 year old, 43%

Price: $56 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Dave Broom

A new addition to the core range, this shows Glen Grant with a little more weight, but just a little. I've never been one for the heavily-sherried versions. Here, the distillery's signature green elements—spring flowers, fresh apple and pear notes are given a little added weight—apple syrup, toffee, and cooked fruits on the palate. If you'd like an alternative to Glenlivet or Glenfddich 12 then look no further. £43
