The Famous Grouse: a tickle of alcohol in the nose that gives way to slight honey; spicy burn up front, almost peppery with a smooth dry finish. I get the thought that something is missing or incomplete. Similar in character to a more complete Grant's, but not as sweet.
About $20 at Trader Joe's for 1L bottle. My advice: go with Grant's at the more agreeable $12 price.

Safe to say this is my first and last bottle of The Famous Grouse. It's a decent sip, but when Grant's can be had instead, why bother? That, and I think I'm becoming more of a bourbon drinker than scotch sipper.
