    DESCRIPTION

    The Naked Grouse was one of the last creations of the company’s long-serving Master Blender, John Ramsay, who retired after forty years shortly before the whisky was released. For two and a half years before retiring last year, John worked with his designated successor, Gordon Motion, who also played an important role in creating The Naked Grouse, and bears responsibility for its continuing flavour profile, along with other expressions of the brand. The Macallan and Highland Park are central to the make up of The Naked Grouse, which is then ‘matured in the finest sun dried sherry oak casks’, according to the company’s website. It is presented in a plain, label-less bottle, with a grouse bird embossed in the glass, so the whisky’s rich colour may be admired.


    A deep amber hue; a base note of fragrant wood (cigar box, dusty drawer, sawn oak), with dried fruits and fragrant cooking spices (all spice, nutmeg, mace). A rich, smooth texture and a sweet taste, drying slightly in the finish, with juicy fruits (macerated dried figs), and dark chocolate-covered coffee beans in the spicy aftertaste. A blend for malt lovers. 

    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    In November 1999, Highland Distillers PLC was taken over by its holding company, Edrington; the following year it was taken out of public ownership, in order, as the Group’s Chairman Sir Ian Good told me, to enable the company “to control its own destiny… to make quick decisions, un-beholden to the City”. Among those ‘quick decisions’ was the resolve to expand The Famous Grouse range, using the brand’s outstanding reputation to attract new consumers and offer existing ones the opportunity to ‘trade up’.
