My first foray into the world of Famous Grouse blends. Quite nice - solid bodied, the colour of golden honey. Oaky nose with malt, toffee and a little apple. These are also on the palate with some peat smoke, vanilla and pepper. A little water brings out the peat - medium warm finish. Not outstanding but very nice.

In the peaty blended world, I think it beats the crap out of Black Bottle and Teachers. a Nice one to warm up the peat buds :)

I wrote this almost 2 years ago...I think if I had written it now I would give it a higher score!

@talexander, you CAN adjust your score, and, if you wish, add a comment explaining that you adjusted it, and what it had originally been.

Yeah, I could...but I'd rather spend the time reviewing new ones! :)
