Naked Blended Malt Whisky (700ml)
Blended Malt Whisky
The Naked blended malt is matured in first fill Oloroso sherry oak casks. It is from these ‘naked’ casks that haven’t held whisky before, that Naked Malt takes its name and its distinctive flavour. Going back to whisky at its most uncomplicated, Naked Malt is not about age statements, but a skilled approach and respect for the liquid. The ageing process, along with a blend of single malts results in a rich and fruity whisky with a soft spice finish and offers a more robust flavour than its predecessor.
The new Naked blended malt has been made from a selection of the finest single malts (The Macallan, Highland Park, Glenturret and Glenrtothes). Naked Malt is the result of a clear understanding of the meticulous art of blending coupled with the care and craftsmanship from our Master Blender. After the blending process, the whisky is added to the first-fill sherry casks for at least six months. The whisky then goes through a final chill-filter before bottling.
Aroma: Smooth and oily with notes of cherry compote, buttered granary toast, malt, custard and peach.
Taste: Sherried and thick with notes of sultanas, sticky toffee pudding, raspberry jam, Victoria sponge, custard and crème caramel.
Finish: Medium, with notes of cocoa, oak and just a soupcon of smoke on the very tail.
