Grand Old Parr 12-Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky starts off with a nice hit of sweet spice and oak and delivers a great mouthfeel with a medium-bodied, chewy whiskey.

.Named after a famous Englishman, Thomas Parr, who lived during the 15th and 16th centuries. His remains now lie in Westminster Abbey..Grand Old Parr is named for Thomas Parr, a semi-legendary Englishman reputed to have lived for 152 years, from the late 15th to the mid-17th Centuries.
“Old Parr” was certainly a real person, and undoubtedly lived for a very long time by the standards of the day, but stories of his century-and-a-half lifespan or fathering bastards at the age of 100 should be taken with a pinch of salt.
His remains are in Westminster Abbey, so you can visit them on your next trip to London. The Grand Old Parr brand dates back to 1909.Plenty of fresh fruit. Apricot, apple, peach, white grape.
Dried tropical fruits. Grainy, with notes of barley and corn. Caramel. Some woodiness. Light but nice.Lightly fruity, with plenty of caramel. Peach. Apricot.
