The Naked Grouse Blended Malt Whisky Review

The Naked Grouse Blended Malt Whisky The Famous Grouse, the biggest selling Blended Scotch Whisky in Scotland, have produced some interesting special editions and variants over the years, including a single malt, but this Naked Grouse is effectively a permanent member of the Grouse family.

A Blended Malt, so made only with a combination of Single Malts and not containing any grain whisky unlike it's brother The Famour Grouse. I've heard lots of good things about this dram and going in with an open mind and palate.

As I said a few people have mentioned that this is pretty good and they are note wrong, this is delicious, a real easy going session dram and I definitely need to sort out a bottle or three of this for the house.

Don't think twice if you see this on offer for £20, just buy it and drink it and enjoy it.

You might find this in a supermarket or at your local Whisky Specialist.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

So I know that this is Grouse product but I would almost have said I could have picked it out without knowing, it has that malty, sweet, familiar note, theres tinned fruit salad, with the syrup, some bitter blood orange, especially the pith, a hint of buttered popcorn in the background with heather honey

Palate

Really quite thick and syrupy for 40%, the palate is light and fruity, more of that tinned fruit salad in syrup, light honeydew and glaia melon, gentle oak notes and vanilla infused chantilly cream, a little buttery also, so tasty

Finish

Light, fruity, sweet
