Interesting fact… Famous Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Famous Grouse Blended Scotch Whiskey, instead of whisky.

Famous Grouse Bottling Note

One of the world's most popular blends, and the best-selling Scotch whisky in Scotland, Famous Grouse is a very nicely balanced, malty blend which was first made in 1896. In fact, it was created by Matthew Gloag's company after he was asked to supply wines for a royal banquet with Queen Victoria in attendance. His son, William, perfected a blend named The Grouse, renaming it The Famous Grouse in 1905. Around eighty years later, the company was awarded a Royal Warrant. The blend represents great value for money, and it also works beautiful in whisky-based cocktails. Delicious.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A crisp, light nose offering up notes of toffee apples, hints of dried flowers and biscuity barley.

Palate: Balanced, biscuit-laden palate with a core of thick, creamy malt. Just a hint of spice and the vaguest whisper of smoke really bring a great deal of complexity.

Finish: A slightly sweet, malty finish.

Overall: A very malty, biscuity blend. It's easy to see why this is so popular in Scotland!

    George

    my choice for many yrs. no after taste. Some of,the blends have more of the smokey peat taste. Not famous grouse.

    23rd October 2014

    if every bottle tasted the same as the one i had last week, this would be my top dram

    but the colour taste is killing it, i can taste the colour in the aftertaste, like chemicals or something.

    9th October 2014

    Excellant value for the money.

    Very smooth. I drink it with a good bit of quality bottled water or soda. Ballantine's would be my next choice for bargain priced Scotch.

    mr.

    A rich smooth taste. I had the pleasure of a bottle one weekend when I was in college 45 years ago; it was grand then and it remains the same. Thank you for the pleasure. William F. HARRELL Sr.

    What a value!

    I like it. Lots of grain though. I like it!

    29th June 2014

    no.1

    best whisky ive tried but has a little nip to it

    Colonel John J. Murphy

    absolutely the best Scotch I have ever imbibed. I have been buying this since my first months in the Army.

    3rd June 2014

    Chivas or black label any day

    After reading so many glowing reviews I picked up a bottle. Nose: old desk, leather. Taste: pretty much the same. Must be a bad batch? Used rest of bottle for tall mixers

    29th May 2014

    Can't beat it for the price!

    if you wanna spend $100 sure you can find better but I get this stuff for $22 a bottle when it is on sale & have turned so many friends on to it w never a complaint.

    4th May 2014

    Terrible!

    I enjoy blended whisky aswell as single malts but this has to be one of the worst blended whiskies I've had. Burnt treacle and no character what so ever! Not for me!

    3rd May 2014

    Get a Grouse in You

    Grouse has Highland Park as a component so it has a pedigree, which can be tasted by the connosier but will go unnoticed by the masses who only down this stuff to get drunk. Has the quality declined in recent years? Of course, they can hardly keep up with demand, and more grain has been added so now less than 20% of it is single malt. Still worth having one for when you want to go unpretentious. Steer clear of Bell, Whyte and Makays and Black Bottle at all costs!

    28th April 2014

    Nogood boyo

    A good solid blended whisky which has been hyped out of all proportion. At just over 12 euro a litre it's still a good buy but for me does not have the performance of Grants family reserve.

    27th March 2014

    Great Blended Whisky

    Smooth and massively superior to Bells. Bells I find harsh with a not pleasant after taste. For the price, just bought for £13 on offer and fluxuates from £13 - £18 for 70cl. Even at the top end is it a whisky well worth the price tag and as good as many single malts.

    16th February 2014

    TOP BLEND

    Very good blend - better than cheaper singles

    10th February 2014

    DEDICATED SKOTCH DRIKER OVER A LIFE TIME

    I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL BLENDED SCOTCHES OVER MY LIFE. WHILE THERE MAY BE A BETTER BLEND I HAVE NOT FOUND IT. THE 12 YEAR OLD BLEND IS EXELLENT.WITH A BASE OF HIGHLAND PARK AND MACALLEN, PROBABLY EIGHT BLENDS. THE NORMAL BLEND DONE IN OAK CASKS IS A MIGHTY FINE BLENDED SKOTCH.

    31st January 2014

    Best Blend

    Wont drink another blend, simply the most accessible blend, at a decent price, perfectly acceptable, wont spend a penny more, unless its a decent Malt.

    23rd December 2013

    Not bad

    The main problem with this blend is the poor integration with the grain whisky. However IMO this is better than most cheap blends and is quite smooth if somewhat bland.

    22nd November 2013

    Only for coctails

    But I am afraid that it will still taste cheap

    8th November 2013

    Oh dear..... not good

    An edge better than Bells.... but again only useful for a hot whiskey. Jason Breen

    1st November 2013

    Mr

    good

    31st October 2013

    classic

    As far as blends go this definitely has a place among the better ones. Oak, spices, fruit, grains, malt and touch of smoke; everything in balance. I give it three stars much for its consistency, decade after decade.

    18th October 2013

    Ok

    Ok nothing special bit harsh if not with ice. Not bad bog standard blend but cheap and better than most at this price point.

    12th July 2013

    my everyday from canada

    The scotch is lovely and always smooth and delicious and as for the selection of decent mid end in Canada it is a saving grace unless you have upwards of $85 CDN or US $$ (about the same) for a decent bourbon or single malt. I actually now prefer FG most of the time.

    7th July 2013

    one of the best blends

    I only ever buy decent malts these days as i'm now older, wiser and can afford them, but after winning a bottle of this in the Christmas wines and spirits golf tournament thought id give it a go after getting fed up seeing it sat in my drinks cabinet. I have to say I was really surprised at just how smooth it was, and if your on a budget or a tad skint you can do much worse than Grouse.

    5th June 2013

    mr birbal

    best blend i have tasted, highly recommended after a busy day at the office, contact me for great mixers,

    31st May 2013

    Everyday

    There is an abundance of not very good Scotch around on shelves. This is pleasant enough to not be one of them. It will get you through the day, nicely. Isn't that the point?

    29th May 2013

    THE BEST

    BETTER THASN MOST SINGLE BLENDS

    21st April 2013

    EXCELLENT

    SCOLAND'S FAVOURITE BLENDED SCOTCH WHISKY.ENJOYED A 12 YEAR OLD,SOMETIME AGO. TRY IT WITH MINERAL WATER. AV RAMPERSAD/TRINIDAD/WEST INDIES.

    15th April 2013

    undistinguished but balanced

    Avoids most of the metallic tang of cheaper blends, has a reasonable combination of the bubblegum sweetness that comes with some grain blends, and the dryness of many malts. but lacks any distinct taste on the finish or any complexity to the nose. By no means unpleasant to drink and good value if you shop around. Ideal for mixing - why waste good malt? - but still good enough to drink on its own.

    9th April 2013

    An excellent quality, but somewhat unexciting blend.

    The Famous Grouse is rather like a languid aristocrat: educated, cultured, comes from a prestigious family, moves in the most exalted circles... but... tends to be dull company. It's a complex, delicately sweet, infinitely smooth dram, but when I'm choosing a blend, I'd almost prefer to go for something a bit more rough around the edges, a bid more of a 'lad'. Grouse is just too perfect, too well-mannered. Great for serving up to your lady guests, but not really that much fun to hang around with.

    6th April 2013

    Onebyone

    Very dry, and not so smooth

    12th January 2013

    Old Jim

    This is my choice of scotches, hands down.
