A smooth and sweet blended Scotch whisky, The Famous Grouse Bourbon Cask is matured in American oak casks, including ex-bourbon barrels. This imparts a delicious layer of vanilla and caramel sweetness to the whisky, balanced by hints of citrus and toasted grain.

Description

Aroma

The initial fragrance is inviting, drawing you in with sweet scents of caramel and honey.  Subtle hints of toasted grain emerge, hinting at the whisky’s malty base. This gives way to a touch of vanilla, like a vanilla bean pod nestled amongst the other aromas.

Taste

The first sip delivers on the promise of the nose, with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.  Sweet flavors of vanilla ice cream take center stage, reminiscent of homemade churned on a summer day. As you savor it, notes of toasted coconut emerge, adding a pleasant complexity. A refreshing hint of citrus peel cuts through the sweetness, balancing the richness. Underneath it all, a subtle smokiness whispers of the bourbon cask influence, adding a touch of intrigue.

Finish 

The sweetness lingers on the tongue initially, with the soft oak character gradually coming to the forefront. The finish is dry and short, leaving you wanting another sip to explore the layers of flavor once more.
