70cl // 40% ABV
The Famous Grouse Port Wood finish combines award winning malts with the subtle flavours of grain to create a blend of the smoothest character. The blend is allowed to marry in specially selected Port casks that impart a dried fruit flavour.Old port barrels are not unknown for use in finishing, but they are hardly commonplace. Scotch-makers prefer old bourbon and sherry barrels by and large, and port-finished scotch is often of the very aged variety, such as The Balvenie’s 21 Year Old Portwood.
