Famous Grouse Bundle
Famous Grouse Bundle, is two bottles of Famous Grouse for a great price. One is the older design (rare and collectible) and the other is the new updated packaging with a new label and new box!
Famous Grouse is one of the world’s most popular blends, and the best-selling Scotch whisky in Scotland. Famous Grouse is a very nicely balanced, malty blend which was first made in 1896. In fact, it was created by Matthew Gloag’s company after he was asked to supply wines for a royal banquet with Queen Victoria in attendance. His son, William, perfected a blend named The Grouse, renaming it The Famous Grouse in 1905. Around eighty years later, the company was awarded a Royal Warrant. The blend represents great value for money, and it also works beautiful in whisky-based cocktails. Delicious.
Nose: A crisp, light nose offering up notes of toffee apples, hints of dried flowers and biscuity barley.
Palate: Balanced, biscuit-laden palate with a core of thick, creamy malt. Just a hint of spice and the vaguest whisper of smoke really bring a nice deal of complexity.
Finish: A slightly sweet, malty finish.
Overall: A very malty, biscuity blend. It’s easy to see why this is so popular in Scotland!
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Jameson
Quote 1 “Delicious! Tried this in a blind taste test against Macallan, Glenfiddich, Johnnie Walker, and Oban. Without knowing the identity of any of them the Famous Grouse was the smoothest and tastiest. Nose is soft buttery malt, light apple and peach with some gentle smoke and wood, mouthfeel brings palate of mild malt, honey, faint vanilla and fruit with semi-sweet chocolate, oak and a heavy dose of graininess. It finishes with some slight bitter wood/chocolate notes and fading honey malt.”
Quote 2 “This is quite simply the finest blended scotch whiskey made. Affordably priced at around $20 bottle, crisp with a light nose this golden gem goes down super smooth with toffee apples, slight matly notes & a hint of spice. Absent are any prominent peaty notes. My preference: I drink it cold with a half teaspoon of water
