Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Creates the illusion of being massively more malty than it really is. Very good extraction of flavours from the wood seems to be the secret (or part of it). I am in awe of the dexterity of the blender...
Famous Grouse 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% A big-boned dram for those markets who want things sweet.
Famous Grouse 1987 Vintage Malt Whisky
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The Grouse at its most graceful.
Famous Grouse 1989 Vintage Malt
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The Grouse enthusiast who tastes this vatted version will be seduced by it. The aromas and flavours suggest malts from the company's own distilleries – and perhaps a little more Highland Park than l...
Famous Grouse Cask Strength
Blended - Scotland - 56.00% 8 Like the regular Grouse, it tastes maltier and bigger than it really is. An excellent justification of cask strength.
Famous Grouse Celebratory Blend
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A decent addition to the Famous Grouse flight.
Famous Grouse Finest
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A beautifully mingled aromatic palette. But this whisky would have delivered more character if bottled at a higher strength.
Famous Grouse Gold Reserve
Blended - Scotland - 43.00% 8 A superb job of blending. When I tasted this whisky on its own, I thought it was good, but not especially distinctive. Tasted among its competitors, it was one of the standouts.
Famous Grouse Islay Cask Finish
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 To reconcile the style of the regular Grouse with Islay is an achievement, but a dubious one. Grouse has a powerful franchise, but Highland already has an Islay-accented blend in the excellent Black B...
Famous Grouse Port Wood Finish
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Port wood can add toffeeish and spicy flavours, rounding out a whisky without adding an obvious wine flavour. That is what happens here.
Famous Grouse Scottish Oak
Blended - Scotland - 45.00% 7 Seamlessly put together. Best drunk neat.
The Black Grouse
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% Integrated and balanced.
The Black Grouse
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Can't help thinking that bottling at 43 would provide the richness it needs in the middle.
The Black Grouse Alpha Edition
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 This whisky lacks character. Sweet and floppy. The nose lead me to expect more consistency.
The Famous Grouse
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% This is a subtle and clever blend.
The Famous Grouse Blended Malt 37 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 47.60% 8 If this is John Ramsay's last blend then what a way to go. Masterly. The slow ever-changing multifaceted style is blending at its very best.
The Naked Grouse
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% Powerful, individual and bold. The power of the oak is balanced by the richness of the fruit.
