    ABV: 40%
    The Naked Grouse brand began with a grain whisky component, but in response to the popularity of single malts, it was decided to make it a 'all malt' in 2017. Highland Park, Glenturret, Glenrothes and Macallan are the core ingredients. The final composition was matured in first-fill and refill American and European oak casks, then finished in first-fill oloroso Sherry butts for a further six months.

    Tasting note: Deep amber-gold. Strong sherry input brings whisps of sulphur / struck match and gingery warmth, with a drying, nutty, muesli-like edge to the malt. A little thin on entry, building concentration and spice through the middle; Biscuity and crisp, with light dried fruits, bitter chocolate and some peel freshness carrying the finish. Starts like a Glenrothes and ends like young Macallan. 40% Alc./Vol.
