A timely innovation from Famous Grouse - this blend is based on peated Islay malts, and promises 'reassuring smoothness with aromatic, peaty flavours'.Tasting Notes (1)
Producer's Tasting Notes
Peaty-smoke then delicate sweetness. Golden raw sugar with traces of malt and oak.
Subtle smoky-sweet tones. A silky smooth delivery with hints of cocoa and spice.
Long, peaty, aromatic. Gentle smokiness, giving way to a resonant oaky note.
More from Famous Grouse
The Black Grouse is hard to find, it's been out of production since 2015. I love it, and I'm not alone, countless friends of mine coaxed me into finding a bottle. Smooth & tasty, much better than the Smoky Grouse being pushed as a replacement. Why do they always ruin a good thing?
It's OK, but it's not great. Try the Teacher's Highland Cream, instead.
Bought a bottle from the Glen Turret distillery (aka Famous Grouse) after tasting a sample. The slight peatiness gives it a touch of distinction. It's a great Scotch at a great price, and could well become Our House Scotch - if I can find some more....
I imagine being part of 'The Famous Grouse' line that this 'Black Grouse' is on the relatively cheap side of the whisky market. I can't recall tasting 'Famous Grouse' before, but I'm trying this 'Black Grouse' now from one of those 5cl (50ml) sample bottles, and I must say it is perfectly drinkable, for what I will surmise to be a cheap priced whisky. Irrespective of price, it's not at all bad. It has quite a peaty taste to it, which I like, and whilst it isn't on par with the likes of 'Laphroaig' or 'Ardbeg', this is a respectable and drinkable alternative. So it gets 4 stars from me. The next time my pocket can't stretch for a single malt (and that's not to state that single malts are immutably better on the whole), I'll keep the 'Black Grouse' in mind as an affordable alternative.
