Heralded as Scotland’s favourite blended whisky, it is the best selling whisky in Scotland and the spirit behind the Scottish rugby team.
Famous Grouse is a very nicely balanced, malty blend which was first made in 1896, and would go on to be known as The Famous Grouse, with the name registered in 1905.
This is a blend of characterful malt whiskies – with components from Glenrothes, Highland Park, and Macallan with a base of grain whisky.
The whisky itself is rather rich and sweet, but well rounded, suggesting heavy use of whisky from Spey and the northern Highlands.
The blend represents great value for money, and it also works beautiful in whisky-based cocktails.
