The Famous Grouse Malt Whisky, 18 year old, 43%

Price: $55.00 Issue: Winter 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Similar in profile to the 12 year old expression below, except that the bouquet is thicker, the sweetness is more caramelized, and the fruit notes are drier (no surprises). There’s also more depth and maturity in this whisky, more oak spice, and a longer, drier finish. An excellent value!
