Whisky Reviews for The Famous Grouse Scottish Oak Finish

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.00 points

  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    A great blend wich certainly could use some water. The spey malts Macallan, Glenrothes and Tamdhu are notably there and the power from Highland Park complete the whole picture. However I have tasted some better Grouse blends!!

      Sweet, vanilla, werther's origional, caramel tablet, sugar tablet, floral notes, woody, very complex (reduced: ctrus, apple, sherry, slightly vanilla, sweetish, slightly dried fruit, mild complex aroma's).
