A Spanish Grouse

The Trust-owned Edrington Group (through Maxxium Global Travel Retail) and the german family-owned Travel Retail-operator Gebr. Heinemann has put out a new exclusive for Airports – The Famous Grouse Spanish Oak.

The whisky starts life as a standard Famous Grouse, but is exposed in a greater degree to fresh ex-sherry casks, giving it a sweeter and richer flavour. It’s bottled in 50cl glass bottles. So if you like the Famous Grouse, this’ll be a nice experience.

It will only be available at airport stores run by Gebr. Heinemann for a RRP of €16 (the price in Norway is 129 NOK). Heinemann have stores at the following airports: Ankara, Antalya, Bergen, Berlin-Tegel, Berlin-Schoenefeld, Bourgas, Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Cape Town, Dalaman, Dortmund, Dresden, Duesseldorf, Durban, Erfurt, Frankfurt, Frankfurt-Hahn, Graz, Hamburg, Hannover, Istanbul, Izmir, Johannesburg, Koeln, Copenhagen, Kristiansand, Leipzig/Halle, Linz, Ljubljana, Maribor, Moscow Domodedovo, Oslo Gardermoen, Podgorica, Portoroz, Saarbruecken, Salzburg, Stavanger, Tallinn, Tirana, Tivat, Tripoli, Trondheim, Varna, Vilnius, Vienna and Warsaw.

Tasting note:

• Appearance: Deep russet, clear and bright
• Aroma: Ripe strawberries, orange peel, prunes and fruit cake
• Palate: Sweet, black cherries, humbugs and dark chocolate
• Aftertaste: Long, rich and sweet
