The Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix) is a rare relative of Scotlandís national game bird, the Red Grouse. Similarly, The Black Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky, born out of a marriage of The Famous Grouse with Islay malt whiskies, is a breed apart. The smoky influence of the peated malts is balanced by the trademark smoothness of The Famous Grouse to create underlying hints of cocoa and spice. With a long, smoky, aromatic finish, itís hardly surprising that The Black Grouse has been listed as The Best New Scotch Blended Whisky in Jim Murrayís 2008 Whisky Bible.
