Deserves its title of The master of the malt, can reccomend this and can also sugest you try the Dark Grouse whisky.
This is my choice of scotches, hands down.
Very dry, and not so smooth
The Famous Grouse is rather like a languid aristocrat: educated, cultured, comes from a prestigious family, moves in the most exalted circles... but... tends to be dull company. It's a complex, delicately sweet, infinitely smooth dram, but when I'm choosing a blend, I'd almost prefer to go for something a bit more rough around the edges, a bid more of a 'lad'. Grouse is just too perfect, too well-mannered. Great for serving up to your lady guests, but not really that much fun to hang around with.
Avoids most of the metallic tang of cheaper blends, has a reasonable combination of the bubblegum sweetness that comes with some grain blends, and the dryness of many malts. but lacks any distinct taste on the finish or any complexity to the nose. By no means unpleasant to drink and good value if you shop around. Ideal for mixing - why waste good malt? - but still good enough to drink on its own.
