Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Dark gold hue. The nose is generous with notes of baked bread, dried fruits and cracked white pepper. The palate offers flavors of brioche, with a hint of marmalade. An easy drinking Scotch. (Mar 2013)
The Famous Grouse has truly become the Scotch Whisky against which the discerning drinker judges all others. Its overall balance and rich appearance are expressions of its subtlety.
A smooth, medium peated, and well-rounded, famous grouse whiskey, has a touch of dryness that allows the complexity of the blend to show through.
The care and skill that goes into making The Famous Grouse the finest of Scotch Whiskies may be measured by the fact that it is the most popular Scotch Whisky amongst the people who know about whisky - the Scots themselves.
