Whisky or Whiskey
What's in a name? The Naked Grouse whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled The Naked Grouse whiskey, rather than whisky.
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.

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.
Over charring ruins fine blend
Stop Press: Single malt man drinks blend...
Lovely, smooth, full taste
This is a lovely and wonderfully inexepensive premium blend - I think its Highland Park and Macallan - so a fine pedigree. Great fruity nose, hint of dark cherry, thick and smooth palate again with fruit and hints of dark wood, and a subtle medium to long finish. At this price there's no excuse not to try it. And it's another one off Ian Buxton's list of "101 Whiskies to try before you die"

I'm not one for blends normally but I was given a sample of this in a whisky shop in Edinburgh. According to the staff this is the original FG blend which has since been err. "cheapened". Whether true or not I don't know but I like the story. I won't touch FG except perhaps as a mixer but this has real taste. Compared to many blends it has a mouthful of malty caramel and finishes with smoke which suits my usual single malt preferences. A lovely drop and a regular in my drinks cabinet.

There is just too much wood smoke and ash from excessive charring of tired casks. It spoils and disguises the young whiskies that makeup this blend. At nearly twice the price of the regular Famous Grouse I had hoped for an increased dollop of well-aged HP and Macallan. No such luck. For the same price you are better off with one of the genuinely aged premiom 12 year old blends.

The decline in malt content of famous grouse can perhaps be explained by this Money making addition, and it's way better than the regular, try it! Macallan and Highland Park can't be bad.

I am a fan of Grouse but find this to be too far from the familiar taste. Obviously a high malt content but far too dull for my palate. I find it almost whisky without, are we sure it is not one of those horrible concoctions for the American Market, blended as a mixer. In conclusion I am disappointed and hope that this bland brew does not affect the reputation of the Famous one. Good packaging.

I first tasted this whisky during a recent visit to The Grouse Experience at Crieff. I was sufficiently impressed to buy a bottle on the way out. I would guess that this has the highest malt whisky content of any blended brand. Certainly is is one of the finest whiskies I have ever tasted. Like Joe from Glasgow I also am a regular Grouse drinker but I also drink a variety of malts and, to be honest, on a blind tasting I might well have taken Naked Grouse for a fine malt!
If you are a keen whisky drinker you certainly can't go through the rest of your life without tasting Naked Grouse.

A lovely whisky, very easy on the nose - rich and smooth. Nice in the mouth and even better in taste! Smooth taken neat. What a welcome addition to the whisky family. I am sure once word gets around, it will prove successful. This comment comes from a regular Grouse drinker.
