This decanter is full of Famous Grouse blended scotch whisky. Really bottle old.
The Famous Grouse blended whisky is famous for using an important part of single malts from The Macallan and Highland Park.
If you enjoyed this blended whisky, you should give a try to the Famous Grouse 12 years old Gold Reserve that has a bigger proportion of single malts.
This is a piece of history. The bottle is from 1970′s and a friend of me, knowing that I collect whisky, gave it to me. The cork on the top of the bottle was in really bad condition, so having to replace the cork with a new one I decided to give it a try. One of the times the whisky from the bottle leaked I smelt it and was great: dry oloroso, almost fino, wood, spices but then when I have finally tasted it there wasn’t things in that dimension.
This dram has a white-like color.
Nose (72): inexistent. fruits, sherry and some toffee. First nosing data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Palate (76): . sweet, toffee, fruits: peach and coffee. Bouquet data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.
Finish (68): no finish. toffee and wood. Finish length is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this The Famous Grouse Decanter with 72 points over 100.
