I should have added above that last night I had a sip of both the Starward Wine Cask, and the Naked Grouse. I didn't get enough of the Starward to form many opinions, but it did seem a bit young, however it made the naked grouse feel thin and watery afterwards. That's a shame a shame, as the Famous Grouse is one my Mum and Dad used to drink a lot in the 70s and 80s and we all thought it would be better. Admittedly this is a different tipple, and Famous Grouse was never a top shelf whisky in the first place, but I think for a $50 malt blend monkey shoulder is head and (you've guessed it) shoulders above it in taste. P.P.S. A'bunadh is going up 32 quid in price in the UK so if you like it, it could be beneficial to get yourself a bottle now. I wasn't going to buy one but am hopeful a later batch is better than the sample I had previously.
