The Black Grouse

image

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

Colour:

Gold.

Nose:

Sherry sweet, smoke and peat with a hint of oak.

Palate:

Creamy texture, slight sweetness but with smooth smoke and peat – not overpowering though. Oak and spice coming through nearer the end. With water the smoke and peat was tempered even further revealing more sweetness and hint of caramel.

Finish:

Medium, smokey finish with more oak and spice.

 

Overall:

A good blend and certainly a step up from the standard Famous Grouse. If you’re not sure on smoke and peat this might be a good introduction – not to overpowering with it and cheap so you’re not spending a fortune on something you might not like.

 

Notes:

Taken from The Famous Grouse Website. (Please note Black Grouse is only listed on their shop page in miniature form – their main page talks about Black Grouse Alpha instead).
