Still puzzling about a pressie for a pal? There’s a stunning limited edition of just 7092 bottles from The Famous Grouse, available exclusively online and from Glenturret Distillery, Crieff, Perthshire, while stocks last.
TFG says the taste and finish are astonishing. It is creamy with a lovely round, soft mouth-feel and long, rich sweet finish. If you love The Famous Grouse you’ll recognise the Speyside fruitiness, but here it has somehow been enhanced and topped with vanilla.
The secret is in the cask - it's Scottish Oak, rather than European or American Oak that is typically used for maturing whisky.
Should you buy a bottle, priced £30, TFG will present you with a small piece of the Scottish Oak marrying cask that created it. Inscribed with your name, that little piece of history will also serve as a lifetime ticket to The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery.
