The Famous Grouse has been known for its rich, honeyed flavor,and this bottling is no exception. What has been done is peated malts have been added here to give it a touch of smoke. The nose is very mild on sweet malt and marzipan.The fruit is limited to sultanas, apricots and a hint of peach. Not much else. A hint of smoke, but not very outspoken. It is equally mild on the palate, but a whole lot sweeter. Loasd of caramel, apricots again, a hint of pineapple and toffee. You can ttaste the malt. Mildly spicy, but again rather unimpressive. Clearly some sherry casks were used, but it is far from a top dram. The finish is the part of this blend, with sweet fruit and a nice backbone.
