Cocktail of the week: The Naked Grouse Old Fashioned

By LLM Reporters on 21st October 2015

The Naked Grouse is an expertly crafted Scotch whisky, hand blended in small batches containing world-renowned malts that combine to produce a sweet, rich and smooth taste.

The exceptional blend was inspired by William Gloag of The Famous Grouse family and his pioneering discovery of sherry cask maturation. This innovative process, along with an enduring legacy of expertise, creates a stunning example of the blender’s art and results in a sophisticated dram with notes of cherry compote, spicy cinnamon and dark chocolate.
