The Naked Grouse

20151216_194635_006Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience. as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

Colour:

Gold.

Nose:

Sweet, white wine? Sherry? Cereal, raisins.

Palate:

Slightly bitter to start moving to sweet, creamy, vanilla? custard, followed by a hint of smoke, spice and cinnamon?

Finish:

Long and creamy with a slightly antiseptic quality at the very end.

Overall:

Something special for a low low price. From the bottle to the finish I enjoyed every aspect of this dram.

 

Classic Rock Match:

Following a post by @the_whisky_lady entitled ON THE ROCKS: Match Your Whisky With Rock Classics I’m going to try and match my tastings with a classic rock song.

For this dram I’m going with Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird.

 

 

Notes:

Taken from Famous Grouse Website:

 

THE NAKED GROUSE

The Naked Grouse enriches the flavours of Scotland’s favourite whisky by maturing in sun dried sherry oak casks. The influence of our quality first-fill sherry casks develops a deep russet appearance and an aroma that melds black cherries, cocoa and oak. The taste experience is sublimely smooth with famous trade-mark dried fruits yielding to cinnamon sticks and nutmeg. The sweet finale is rich in dark chocolate with a spicy, orange finish. A fine example of the blender’s art, it is best enjoyed neat or as a classic “Old Fashioned”.
