Dark gold, verging on amber, hue. Sherry and peat aromas mingle on the nose. The palate starts with a savory peaty smokey aspect and leads to lush butterscotch and vanilla flavors. Has a smokey, honeyed finish..March/2013To 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.
