Famous Grouse Bourbon Cask
Famous Grouse Bourbon Cask, NAS, 40 %
This was the first release in the Cask Series from Famous Grouse. The Famous Grouse Bourbon Cask is a blended whisky that has been matured “mostly in American oak, including 1st fill bourbon casks” as they say on the official website.
Nose: Roasted coconut, vanilla and ripe mango. Rich caramel sauce.Comes across as richer and rounder than the regular Famous Grouse.
Taste: Medium to rich body. Very sweet with classic bourbon cask notes of vanilla, tropical fruits and coconut. Almonds and hints of cinnamon in the back.
Finish: Medium long finish. Now also with honey and rich caramel sauce.
Comment: Really enjoyed the sweetness on this one.
