Having recently done tasting notes for the Grant’s Sherry Cask, I was initially struggling to fix a rating on it. That’s when I decided to open up my final bottle of The Black Grouse, and for extra context, to apply the contents of a bottle of Ballantine’s and the tail end of my Té Bheag to the evening as well. With my Father and his record collection joining us, it went something like this.

After years of intrigue on the liquor store shelves, I have finally sampled Old Rasputin!
Listening to that groovy Elton John. That man who writes the melodies just like the Beatles did. And my drink is tasting alright, in fact better than alright, it’s tasting good. Real real good.
