Top reviews for The Famous Grouse Smoky Black:

― Nice blended Scotch. It is my smoky introduction for people trying different types of Scotch whiskys.

― Best served chilled to get coffee notes

― If you need a cheap scotch that goes great in mixed drinks, this is a great option. I didn't like it for sipping, but I really enjoyed it in a Rob Roy.
