A one litre bottle of Famous Grouse Winter Reserve, which was, as expected, a limited winter release unveiled at the tail end of 2018. The blend features a good helping of malt whiskies aged in sherry casks, imparting a classic spicy sherried character that’ll be sure to warm your cockles during the cold months. There’s even a seasonal snow grouse on the bottle to keep you company.
Nose: Raisins, dried apricot, sweet orange citrus and a drizzle of honey with an earthy woody hint.
Palate: Freshly baked gingerbread, oodles of nutmeg and cinnamon alongside dark chocolate praline.
Finish: Well rounded oak spice lingers.
