Thanks for all the replies folks.
Tonight I was at a friends who happened to have some Famous Grouse, I know it's not top of the game but I was pleased to find I actually liked it - neat too!
When I head to ASDA, they do a Glenfiddich gift set, 3x 5cl miniatures of the 12/15/18 year olds. I'm particularly looking forward to these as I've often wondered the tastes between different ages. I realized all three whiskys I've tried have been blended scotches too, so these single malts should be interesting.
