What happens if you take Famous Grouse, a blended whisky that’s made by combining whiskies such as Highland Park and Macallan and add an Islay component to the final blend? A spirit such as Black Grouse comes to life.
And comes to life it does, from that first aroma that hits you and is filled with the presence of apricots, pears, apples and cocoa it instantly grabs your attention even before you take that first sip.
Black Grouse begins with a soft feel in the mouth that’s filled touches of smoke caramelized seasalt, black pepper, coconut, vanilla, and orange cream that leads into a finish filled with brandied cherries and sweet milk chocolate and touches of cardamon basil.
As the experience of Black Grouse comes to an end it ends with it kisses your palate with touches of smoked cocoa.
