FAMOUS GROUSE Malt whisky 12 years old 40%

Enticing fruitcake eventually fails to conceal a potent biscuity malt.

Mouthfilling and well-rounded. Intensive fruitiness battles it out with the malt. Sporadic outbursts of spices. A little gingery.

Understated yet potent mixture of malt and minty oak. A faint whisper of chewy fruit sees the whisky off.

Forget whatever prejudice you might have when it comes to vatted malts. This is a tasty morsel indeed. The balance between fruit and malt is exceptionally well done.

Rating: 8/10
