Review #1352 – The Naked Grouse

The Schtick: This was sampled blind at a local whiskey tasting. After I took down notes, it was revealed to me.

Review #1352 | Scotch Review #470

Distiller: Various

Bottler: Naked Grouse

Brand: Naked Grouse

Selection: N/A

ABV: 43% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Apples, pecan, oak and light pepper. Not a ton going on here, but nothing unpleasant is happening, either. Perfectly fine.

Taste: Thin, no heat. Not a ton going on. Lots of apple, light leather, some pecan, and a nice faint sherry component.

Finish: Short, musty and a bit hot.

Overall: Overall, this is just fine. Its not great, the short hot finish kinda kills it in the end, but overall it isnt bad. This gets a solid 4. It works fine neat or in a cocktail, though, Id bet.

Thanks for reading!
