Famous Grouse Snow Grouse

Snow Grouse – ice cold whisky for dancing

Aged: three and a half years

Colour: light gold

Strength: 40%

Price: around £15

Best for: taking a celebratory shot after winning a dance off in the local nightclub

Nose: tangerine, creamy, soft and light

Taste: delicate, light vanilla, no burn whatsoever, sweet after taste, easy to knock back neat, which is the plan

Verdict: pure grain whisky, made to be drunk straight from the freezer – this has gimmick written all over it. But don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Grouse may have struggled in the premium market but they know mass appeal better than almost anyone and this is one smooth drinker that’ll make parties go with a bang. Keep one in the freezer, you never know when it’ll come in handy…
