In the number of the most popular blends of the world, Famous Grouse is a very nicely balanced, malty blend which was first made in 1896, originally named the “Grouse Brand” in honour of Scotland’s national game bird.
A deep golden colour, a mellow and rich oaky nose with hints of malt, brine and sweet dried raisins. A rich and malty mouth with toffee and dried fruit, a warm, long and peppery aftertaste. A very pleasant and enjoyable expression.
This bottling is extremely difficult to get, actually it isn't available anymore. The J & B Jet is a blend of 32 different whiskys with a minimum age of 12 years, which impresses with its rich and complex character.
Amongst the best selling whiskies of Scotland and engaged into a head to head competition with Dewar’s White and Johhny Walker Red Label, this sweet Justerini & Brooks is great for a party and quite refreshing when mixed with ginger ale or soda.
A moderately salty, a bit peaty nose with hints of cinnamon, tobacco, white Pepper, black tea and old leather. Sweet candy palate, rough salty peppery finish. Although it will never become the first choice for a hard core single malt aficionado, this J&B is the second best selling blended whisky in the world after Johnnie Walker.
