Naked Grouse Blended Malt first started to roll out in August 2017 in select global markets and is expected to appear in select US markets beginning April 2018. This is a blended malt whisky featuring single malts from Glenturret, Glenrothes, Highland Park and The Macallan. These were aged in first and second-fill American and European oak before blending together. The blend then finished in first-fill oloroso sherry butts for six months further. It is chill-filtered and bottled at 43% ABV. This replaces the Naked Grouse Blended Whisky which has been removed from the market.

Tasting Notes

"This blended malt starts off with a fistful of dried fruits, robust sweet malt, and a touch of barrel spices. These all follow through on to the palate with just a hint of smoke and dark honey. Oak flavors pepper the experience and the finish ends on a fruity and tangy finish. Solid whisky and a great value. One to seek out and have on hand for a daily dram."
