Whisky Reviews for The Naked Grouse Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

  1. robain scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Blind tasting.

    6 whiskynerds all agreed on this being awesome. People reviewing with poor points drink with their eyes and minds that this is a crap whisky because it's from "famous grouse"-group.

    This is a blended malt with macallan, highland park and Glenrothes. This is no bullcrap. No grain added.

    Smooth and easy to drink ... a bit too easy, that is ... before not to drink the whole bottle at once without noticing

    Pronounced sherry whiskey, but very young, damp, but sweet, tasty, excellent aroma.

    After spending £400+ in two hours at the Old & Rare Show 2020, I hastily make my way to the Ivy to play & pay for some of the damage. Who would have thought that after 10 years as a resident pianist there, it would potentially be my last, due to the effects of our response to Covid-19! Adriano tests my whisky skills once again with another blind tasting, something I encourage him to do with frequency.

    C: I guessed 40%, backed up using Charles Maclean’s ‘beading’ test. I guessed affordable [cheap] & available, and spotted the sherry maturation [finish) – with bourbon underlying. I guessed Scotch. Then I guessed single malt, my first error. I identified a decent enough robust nose and ok arrival, but weak travel and no finish to speak of. That should have told me it was a blend, knowledge I hope to retain for next time. Apparently, this is made up of Macallan & Highland Park amongst other components. It’s also very simple. Feels ideal for travel retail. In the UK, this is around 50% more expensive than Famous Grouse.
