Grangestone 12 Single Malt Whisky




One World Many Malts..This is how I feel when I am amidst a sea of bottles to choose from. My mission is to unravel one bottle at a time. As you all know I like trying different Scotch whiskies and present the facts so everyone can benefit from it. Today I bring for you GrangeStone 12 , a name unfamiliar to me. I got to unravel this whisky and am proud to present my tasting notes for you.  One of the reasons I bought it is the price as well, it seemed like a good value for money hence  I picked this bad boy up. 
The highland region generally produces more full bodied whiskies with deeper notes of peat and smoke. The scotch spends twelve years in hand-prepared oak casks. A floral aroma in intertwined with hints of spice, fruit and oak. Delicate with subtle spice and oak notes enveloped by a mellow, vanilla sweetness. This was product story in the bottle, now its time to find out its real flavor.

This whisky did not satisfy my palette as it is not so flavorful. It does have a faint touch of peaty,smokey flavor for people who enjoy this profile. For me it is just an easy to drink whisky , not much complex flavors. I could use it for cocktails and as as summer drink in a highball glass with club soda and ice.

I am sure you all have different tastes. Let me know your opinion about this whisky or anything in general.
Cheers🥃🥃🥃

    1. It is my first time as well didnt find anything about the distillery online. I believe it is an exclusive whisky for total wine and the distillery is part of Balvenie.
