The Black Grouse is an uncommon relative of Scotland's national diversion feathered creature, the Red Grouse. Also, The Black Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky, conceived out of a marriage of The Famous Grouse with Islay malt whiskies, is a breed separated. The smoky impact of the peated malts is adjusted by the trademark smoothness of The Famous Grouse to make hidden indications of cocoa and flavor. With a long, smoky, fragrant completion, it's not really amazing that The Black Grouse has been recorded as The Best New Scotch Blended Whisky in Jim Murray's 2008 Whisky Bible.
