One of the world’s most popular blends, and the best-selling Scotch whisky in Scotland. Famous Grouse is a very nicely balanced, malty blend which was first made in 1896, and would go on to be known as The Famous Grouse, with the name registered in 1905. Around eighty years later, the company was awarded a Royal Warrant. The blend represents great value for money, and it also works beautiful in whisky-based cocktails. Delicious.
Nose: A crisp, light nose offering up notes of toffee apples, hints of dried flowers and biscuity barley.
Palate: Balanced, biscuit-laden palate with a core of thick, creamy malt. Just a hint of spice and the vaguest whisper of smoke really bring a great deal of complexity.
Finish: A slightly sweet, malty finish.
Overall: A very malty, biscuity blend. It’s easy to see why this is so popular in Scotland!
