Famous Grouse Whisky
Advantages: Sublime taste
Disadvantages: Extreme sadness when the bottle has been emptied
I am sure we have noticed over the last couple of weeks there have been a number of drinks offers in the supermarkets. I guess this is the run-in to Christmas when many of us elect to top up our drinks cupboard and there do seem to be some absolute bargains to be had.
I have this evening done a bit of a stock check because it seems appropriate that we should clear the decks a bit before getting new stock in.
Starting with the bottles with the least in and prompted by Newby2's recent enticing review, I was disappointed to note that there was only a tiny drop of Famous Grouse whisky left in the bottle. Of course, it had to be sampled straightaway - it has been a nice nightcap before climbing the wooden hill to Bedfordshire shortly.
I used to drink a lot of this and it is one of my favourite whisky brands - one that I prefer to drink on the rocks than with a mixer. I anticipate that within the next couple of weeks there will be a new round of TV adverts featuring the famous red grouse after which the product is named.
So, the bottle is now empty and I have a lovely warm feeling inside and a lovely taste - a rich mellow taste that lingers.
Many folk think that Famous Grouse is a single malt, but it is actually a blended whisky or as they say on the bottle " a marriage of fine rare Scotch whiskies"
It is made by Matthew Gloag & Son Ltd of Perth in Scotland. The label proudly claims that it is Scotland's favourite whisky. It's a brand that is known and loved by many and enjoys a world-wide following. It has its own website - thefamousgrouse.com. I would recommend a visit.
I have as much difficulty in describing the taste of a whisky as I do in describing the scent of a fragrance. All I know that is it tastes great and is a drink worth savouring. Hold it in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing and experience the flavour.
It's really rather sad to be sitting here looking at an empty bottle of Famous Grouse. I can feel an action plan coming on.
