Black Grouse, or Islay Mist 12?

Postby Swedish Chef » Sat Jan 16, 2010 6:51 pm

Funds are low after Christmas so I'm looking for a (relatively) cheap bottle.
I tried the Islay Mist last week and really liked it, but as I haven't tried the BG I was wondering which one you prefer.
The IM is just three euro/$4.5 - 10% - more than the BG.

Thanks in advance.

They are both quite good but I prefer Black Grouse. To me it has greater depth and complexity. I found Islay Mist 8 attractively simple and easy-drinking, whereas Black Grouse offered a bit more to chew on.

I find Black Grouse to be rather good, and certainly worth the price.
