Grant’s whisky announced the launch of Grant’s 18 Year Old in South Africa. An intricate blend of Scotland’s top single malt and famous grain whiskies that have been matured for a minimum of 18 years, Grant’s 18 Year Old is finished in casks that previously held port to deliver a full-bodied taste of unique intensity. Grant’s 18 Year Old will be available in South Africa from April 2016, at all leading liquor outlets retailing for R820.
Grant’s 18 Year Old is a multi-award winning blended whisky finished for up to six months in Port pipes, huge casks capable of holding up to 600 litres. Adding the final touch to the 18 Year Old blend in this way helps the liquid develop a subtle added flavour. Delicate, fruity port notes come through on the nose, and the taste spectrum has complex layers of fruit cake, malty honey and port.
The blend is sourced from a variety of barrels and casks, and the additional finishing develops a mature blend with a spectrum of intense flavours.
