I recently discovered this product. Remarkable quality for the price, I can enjoy it without feeling guilty.I can see why it is so popular in the UK
I started enjoying this scotch several years ago after the comedian, Ron White, discovered it and endorsed it on a trip to Inverness when he observed what brand the native Scots were drinking. I found Black Grouse to be one of the smokiest, smoothest blended scotches I have ever enjoyed. It is worth the slightly higher price than my former scotch of choice and I will continue purchasing it whenever I can.

The Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix) is a rare relative of Scotland’s national game bird, the Red Grouse. Similarly, The Black Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky, born out of a marriage of The Famous Grouse with Islay malt whiskies, is a breed apart. The smoky influence of the peated malts is balanced by the trademark smoothness of The Famous Grouse to create underlying hints of cocoa and spice. With a long, smoky, aromatic finish, it’s hardly surprising that The Black Grouse has been listed as The Best New Scotch Blended Whisky in Jim Murray’s 2008 Whisky Bible.
