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 the world's finest Single Malts. It was first matured in American and European oak casks and finished for an extra six months in “naked” Oloroso Sherry casks that haven’t held Whisky before. 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 Gold at the 2020 International Sprits Challenge, Double Gold at the 2019 SF World Spirits Competition, plus the Chairman’s Trophy as well as 96 Points at the 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

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.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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.
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.
