To create the distinct smokiness of The Black Grouse, we take our Famous blend and enhance it with specially selected peated malts. The resulting Black Grouse whisky has a distinctive peaty character, which comes through in spice and dried fruit flavours with a long aromatic finish, reminiscent of our Famous blend.

Finish: Long, Smoky, Aromatic.
Golden in the glass, the aroma is mild, with just a blush of orchard fruit. The palate shows a mellow mix of vanilla and baked apple, finishing fiery with cinnamon heat and a modest whiff of smoke. Adding water integrates vanilla and apple spice sweetness, and all but extinguishes the smoke. Sip or mix.
