Nose: Rich and malty leading to lime, toffee and raisin.
Palate: Cox apples and caramel leading to walnut and coffee cake.
Finish: Long and complex, it seems some of the more famous elements of this blend shine through here.
Overall: A blend from a classic producer featuring some top class malts.
A great premium blend from Famous Grouse. The 12 year old Gold Reserve features a higher proportion of malt whiskies from top distilleries like Highland Park and the Macallan.
