“A well balanced Whisky”

Written on: 17/02/2013

Despite the poor nose qualities, i have to say that it's a pretty enjoayable whisky. I think that there is trully an interesting taste, especially with a tiny bit of water and it worths the price… Read Full Review

“Not the absolute worst "economy", bottom-shelf blend...”

Written on: 13/05/2011

Not the absolute worst "economy", bottom-shelf blend (solid compared to the sordid likes of Clan Magregor and J@B), but not great value-for-money here. Cheap malt on the nose, with a taste that begins fairly sweet and malty, and only halfway succesfully dries the palate with a slightly peppery finish with a modest puff of sherry smoke. I wouldn't turn a free dram down in disgust, but there's better in the price range, and even for a bit cheaper, such as Teacher's Highland Cream, Black Bottle… Read Full Review

“No nose, terrible bite, lacking that classic Scotch...”

Written on: 09/12/2010

No nose, terrible bite, lacking that classic Scotch taste. It seems to have a kind of skunky, petrol taste and after-taste to it. I kept trying it to find some redeeming quality and could not find any. I found it to be truely horrid - almost laughable. Dewars White label and J & B seem like fine single malts (which they are not) in compare… Read Full Review

I would think that a seasoned Scotch drinker of your kind would know enough not to buy such a "truely horrible product" ! It suits my taste just fine , although I am not an experienced Scotch connoisseur, I don't believe it deserves such a terrible review.

Read and heed this review. I can drink and enjoy a wide variety of scotch brands, but Famous Grouse has an after tast that is truly OFFENSIVE, something akin to rotting fish. In my house, nothing ever goes to waste, but I plan to pour the remainder of tonight's brand new bottle down the drain.

Written on: 31/03/2010 by jbsmoky (1 review written)

I played the Turnberry Golf (Alisa) course and found that Famous Grouse was the only scotch whisky sold at the half-way house. I can't really evaluate its quality, but it sure did a great job of warming me up to face the back nine on that cold, windy, rainy September day… Read Full Review

“Twenty plus years scotch drinker. I drink scotch on...”

Written on: 10/02/2010

Twenty plus years scotch drinker. I drink scotch on the rocks. I usually regurally drink Regal, Pinch or Red Label depending on whats on sale. I enjoy single malts and will spring for a liter when the sales are right. This scotch is drinkable, but it takes half a glass to adjust to it. It has an after taste that other cheap scotch's seem to be better at disguising. It's like stale wine really. It has a lighter bite on taste then other cheap scotches, so if you don't like a bite and don't mind… Read Full Review

“Cut with water the harsh smell and taste dissappears....”

Written on: 09/01/2009 by Jmccull (1 review written)

Cut with water the harsh smell and taste dissappears. Overall a good whisky, but for the money I'd go for the Speyburn single malt, which is smokey, honey sweet, and smooth compared to the famous grouse, and only a few dollars more in most places… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2008 by gregormilligan (1 review written)

A fantastic quality blended whisky, containing a blend of some fine malts including Highland Park. Well-rounded flavour, good on the nose and reasonably priced.

Perhaps the second-finest blended Scotch behind the world-renowned Johnnie Walker… Read Full Review

“The Famous Grouse Blended Whiskey: Here we are, famous...”

Written on: 30/12/2004 by cypressbob (2 reviews written)

The Famous Grouse Blended Whiskey: Here we are, famous grouse, easy as heck to comeby here, but a fine scotch blended whiskey none the less. The nose is quite fierce, rough sugary sweetness, some hints of honey, clovey alcohol on the nose also. Taste is sweet and spicy, hints of eastern spices, and the usual christmas cloves and the like, strong ethanolic aftertaste

Drinkable, yes, too sweet? perhaps, but all round a very good blend… Read Full Review

I found this review helpful because...He obviously smelled and tasted the whisky, rather than just drinking it. This is the only fair review of the bunch, a good blend yes, but with obvious flaws.
