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 Naked Grouse and it was a smoother and sweeter addition to The Famous Grouse family.
 
Now, Naked Malt 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. Naked Malt 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).

 

*Naked Malt has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.

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.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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).
