  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    The ordinary Grouse is pleasant enough - not sure that this expression is an improvement.
    • Nose
      Caramel, toffee apple - a slight hint of pear drops
    • Taste
      Not as pleasant as the bottle - like a watered down cough mixture, with a touch of heat following on.
    • Finish
      Takes a bit of getting used to.
