Where's the smoke?

The nose is very weak, the palate is okey, not bad for budget whisky. Still take JWR over this anyday.

A terrific smooth drink that defies it's inexpensive cost ....The best value for a smooth, lightly smoked, peaty whisky imo

probley the best blended whisky on the market

Im a bit of a self confessed whisky snob. Single malt or nothing. A friend bought me smoky black, i almost gave it back. But thought it would do for hot toddy s. However i tried some to sip and was impressed, better i thought than some if the cheaper single malts. Well done famous grouse, probley the best blended whisky on the market.

Nice but not smokey

Famous grouse smokey black is a nicer tasting blend from one of the budget makers but..... smokey taste, no there's not!
However, I would buy it again as it is very pleasant.

A beautiful blend. Smoke and peat are restrained but the malt and grain marriage is astonishing. Ballantines now seems pedestrian.
