The #1 Scotch in Scotland for over 35 years, the name was earned by crafting a whisky with an enduring reputation for fine quality and incomparable smoothness. Crafted from exceptional grain whiskies and the finest malt whiskies, it is aged in European oak sherry casks and American oak bourbon casks to add character and flavor. It is bright golden in appearance with aromas of citrus and spices, full-flavored medium bodied with notes of citrus, spices, and vanilla, and it has a smooth lengthy finish. The Famous Grouse can be enjoyed neat, with ice, or with your favorite mixer or classic cocktails.
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!
