Famous Grouse Smoky Black Reviews

Excellent value

Nothing wrong with this renamed blend from my long time favourite house, though I would hesitate to label it smokey. A hint of peat in the aftertaste but no more than that. Overall a very satisfying blend and at less than £17, a most friendly price.

Smoky Black is my favorite budget blend, smooth & mellow.

Black Grouse is my favorite budget blend. I was first referred to it by Ron White (over the TV) and it was a very good recommendation. It's smooth, mellow, and I have no guilt putting it over ice.

Pleasantly surprised

I actually quite enjoy Smoky Black. It's well balanced for a budget blend with a mix of sweet and smoke. Certainly not the heavy smoke you get from some Islays, but it's definately there and this is an easy sipper. My favourite budget blend I've tried so far.

Drinkable, but was hoping for more smoke

Was hoping to find a blend (the cost of malt racks up pretty quickly) with a good dose of peat. Alas, whilst there is nothing wrong with this blend from grouse it doesnae live up to its name. There's a hint of smoke to me but nothing exceptional. Pretty smooth and palatable, but I'm unlikely to buy it again.

A good alternative if you are on a budget.

Cracking value for money and I really enjoyed it and would definitely buy it again. We all have different tastes judging by the mixed reviews but to describe it as petrol baffled me.

Nice pour, good value!

Lovely smoky and maybe dry fruit nose, balanced smokey peat and cereal sweetness flavour. Long peat finish. Great price and nice pour!

Not too bad

Bit of a strange one this. I think I like it. You get the smokey taste straight away but then nothing. Not much of a finish. Its easy to drink, cheap, not one for special occasions. For the price you cant complain.

Way too smoky

Never again, tastes like I am eating a really bad hot dog

Good ish

A touch lighter that I would have expected. Slight Smoky flavour. A decent whisky for the price, especially when on offer. Although, I tried this a free sample from BzzAgent.
