The last few days I've been hitting the Famous Grouse 12. I'm really not liking this one and I've known that for a while but I trying to make room on the shelf.
I just happened to reach for the Famous Grouse while watching my alma mater play basketball...funny to see your post above! I find it sweetish, a little bit of peat, fairly one dimensional, not bad for a blend. The nose shows the grain alcohol, it has a very short finish. I don't find it "bad" just simple.
