The naked truth: this Grouse is a full house
 
Back in the 19th century, Matthew Gloag sold wine (and various Whiskies) at his shop in Perth. When Queen Victoria came around in 1842, he was picked to supply wine to her party. In 1860, during the French Wine crisis, his son William started blending his own Whiskies and a few decades later, his nephew created a blend he called The Grouse. Soon, the blend became a big deal and the family renamed it to The Famous Grouse. Eventually, the distillery joined The Macallan and the Highland Park in a Spirits group. In 2011, a wild blended Scotch matured in ex-Sherry casks appeared and they called it The Naked Grouse and it was a smoother and sweeter addition to The Famous Grouse family.
 
Now, The Naked Grouse is a strong, independent bird, albeit still naked. It is an answer to an increasingly demanding clientele (both drinkers and bartenders) who want something unique with distinctive flavor. This Whisky made for "older millennials" is a masterful blend of different Malts, including Macallan, Highland Park, and Glenturret. It was first matured in American and European oak casks and finished for six months in barrels that used to hold oloroso Sherry. The Naked Grouse is designed as a "session Whisky" and it's best enjoyed neat or with cherry cola. Simple in design, fantastic in taste. It won a Silver and a Bronze at the International Wine & Spirit Competition (2013 and 2014, respectively).

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
