Famous Grouse Mellow Gold, 40%

Price: $33 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This has enticing flavors that will meet with the approval of the regular Grouse drinker: heady florals with fresh peach, light honey, pecan, and underlying caramel. The palate is soothing with vanilla and tangerine, hallmarks of Grouse, plus rosewater, almond, and whispering spices. Gently does it, that's the key to this: kick back and relax. This showcases the Midas touch of Gordon Motion's skills in liquid alchemy. A great value blend to boot.£22
