Brand: Famous Grouse
Type: Blended Malt
Strength: 43% alc/vol
The name refers to the fact that the casks have never held whisky before!
An interesting addition to the Famous Grouse range, this was aged in first fill sherry casks, and is based around malt whisky from Highland Park and Macallan. Very simply, this is a superb value-for-money blended malt.
Nose: Smooth and oily with notes of cherry compote, buttered granary toast, malt, custard and peach.
Palate: Sherried and thick with notes of sultanas, sticky toffee pudding, raspberry jam, Victoria sponge, custard and crÃ¨me caramel.
Finish: Medium, with notes of cocoa, oak and just a soupcon of smoke on the very tail.
