An interesting addition to the Famous Grouse range, this was aged in first fill sherry casks, and is based around malt whisky from Highland Park and Macallan. Packaged very simply, this is a superb value-for-money blend.
The Naked Grouse is a blended scotch whisky matured in the very best first fill sherry casks – The concept for Naked Grouse came from the trial in which it was launched in a market where The Famous Grouse Whisky was not widely known, the label was removed from the bottle with the Grouse left subtly embossed into the bottle to allow the Naked stock to speak for itself.
Nose: Smooth and oily with notes of cherry compote, buttered granary toast, malt, custard and peach.
Palate: Sherried and thick with notes of sultanas, sticky toffee pudding, raspberry jam, Victoria sponge, custard and crème caramel.
Finish: Medium, with notes of cocoa, oak and just a soupcon of smoke on the very tail.
