Nose: Well... alcohol is present. Maybe something citrus. Hard to tell really. Poor seems a good word.

Taste: Caramel abound.... and little else.

Finish: I do believe that somebody forgot to add a finish.

Balance: This is consistently dull.

Thought I'd give this a try as it was on offer. On a personal note I feel I've wasted my money. To my taste this just wasn't enjoyable at all. Don't get me wrong, I've had some good FG in the past, just not this. It does improve a little if you take the advice on the bottle and pop into the freezer for a couple of hours before drinking. It improves even more if you unscrew the top and poor it down the sink.

I will say this - I can see it being popular with younger drinkers who are perhaps not into whisky, as I'm sure mixed with coke/lemonade it would be almost enjoyable.

Yep, Snow Grouse doesn't taste like much. It really makes me wonder why they don't either radically change it, or get rid of it entirely. The name and bottle art are nice,... it is a shame to see them wasted on such a non-descript product.

Thanks for the direct review. I really do like hearing honest and direct feedback, without any tippy toeing around Well done.

I purchased a bottle of Isle of Skye 12 Year a few weeks ago for $18.95. Quite a bargain. By itself, it is great on ice, and it also vats well with more expensive Islays for neat pours.
