Famous Grouse is a very finely balanced, malty mix that was first manufactured in 1896. It is one of the world's most popular blends and the best-selling Scotch whiskey in Scotland. It was actually made by Matthew Gloag's company when he was invited to furnish wines for a royal banquet attended by Queen Victoria. In 1905, his son William produced a blend called The Grouse, which he renamed The Famous Grouse. The corporation received a Royal Warrant over eighty years later. The blend offers excellent value for money and pairs well with whisky-based cocktails.
Nose: The nose is crisp and light, with aromas of caramel apples, dried flowers, and biscuity barley.
Palate: A balanced, biscuit-heavy flavour with a thick, creamy malt core. Just a smidgeon of spice and a smidgeon of smoke add a tremendous deal of intricacy.
Finish: The finish is fairly sweet and malty.
