Filthy stuff, but it's incredibly well marketed, especially overseas. Fabulous Goose is what most Americans think of when you mention malt whisky.
The only whisky I drank on a regular basis was J&B Rare. That was our lunchtime tipple at the Silver Tassie pub in Hamilton when I worked there for the council. Probably because it wasn't too strong tasting. As you say it's all about marketing.
