They're obviously trying to pinch market share from Black Bottle etc and jump on the Islay band wagon - if you can't beat 'em join em!
And by buying Grouse it all helps with charity!
Bleggaevulin! Love it!
Tha Blag was my first major whisky love, but when the term "Bleggae" was coined by my friend Fuzzbee Morse, whilst listening to my reggae take on "the wind cries mary", we were in fact drinking Macallan - a 56.1% single cask purshased to celebate my daughter's birth, and an exceptional dram, if i might get misty-eyed and nostalgic for a wee moment...
...none of which has anything to do with the Black Grouse under discussion.
but who cares...
Bleggaevulin! I'm gonna pour meself the last dram of Blegg 16 that i currently have. I swear I'll wake up tomorrow with this big grin still on my face!

As I sing most nights:
"Whether you're dreadlocks or you're bald
Let the good times roll..."
I've got RB's Cd he is definetly aerodynamically advantaged!
Weeelll,here goes! On sunday I was getting customary "born the wrong colour" conversation from a well meaning fan...I told him I get it a lot, e.g."Anyone toldya yer a white w*g?"(I'm not joking!) One time I was touring with the "Black theatre Coop". At a "blues" party one night, 20 stories up in tottenham, in a dark room full of skanking bodies, loud reggae bass and ganja smoke, the BTC secretary introduces me to a friend: "This is Tim - he's our token white!"
"Token White? Good name for a band!" this bloke replied.
Wot? Better than "Famous Grouse Black??"
I' ll certainly be looking out for it (the bottle, not the band!)

Cheers WB - do you know this for a fact (insider knowledge) or just guessing?
I'd go along with Tamdhu and I daresay some Macallan (no Glenturret?) but would suspect Bunnahabhain (unless heavily peated Bunny?) as all the blurb is pointing towards a 'heavily-peated blend'.
Also Edrington (nee Highland) used to run said distillery and will still have warehoused stock.
You can listen to Helen Potter from Edrington talking about it here http://www.whiskycast.com/files/WhiskyCast_20070826.mp3
