It reminds a little of whisky for just a few seconds, then you are left with a generic ethanol aftertaste. Use it as flavoured vodka to beef up your long drinks. Avoid drinking it neat. – Score: 30/100

The Famous Grouse Port Wood

April 11, 2010

The nose is quite interesting and promising, but the nice taste on the palate only keeps up for a few seconds before turning into boring grainyness. Better than the standard Grouse, but not enough to make me want to buy a bottle. – Score: 62/100

You can tell that this is very young. Much too young for my taste. It tastes almost like a German Korn. But at least it does not seem to be coloured. – Score: 58/100

This bottle costs just €13 at our local HIT supermarket. The quality you get for this price is amazing and easily beats all other blends and single malts below €25 that I have ever tasted. – Rating: 80/100

Jameson Irish Whiskey

Quite spicy for an Irish whiskey, too much for me as it isn’t balanced out by the other aromatic components – Score: 62/100

The Famous Grouse

You can taste that this is a young whisky. OK for just sipping, nothing really disturbing, but it’s hard pinning down any noteworthy aromatic components. – Score: 51/100

Hey! What’s the next Whiskey?

September 1, 2009

Quite special because of its slightly acrid note. Quite mild, although it has noticable wood spice. Not a real “danger” for scotch single malts, but it’s drinkable without regret. – Score: 55/100
