The Black Grouse
Black Grouse is superior to Famous Grouse in all respects. The nose gives vanilla and wood on top of the regular Grouse Macallan-influenced apricot. Black Grouse is smooth from beginning to end and unlike Famous Grouse has a nice finish with particularly pleasant wood notes. A delightful little blend, but as a blend lacks the potency of flavor or richness I usually appreciate in single malt whisky. 82 points (B-).
