Pig’s Nose – Blended Scotch Whisky – 40% ABV
Colour: Golden, slightly caramelly.
Nose: Sweet, rich, sumptuous, a little young. Reminds me a little of Black Bottle.
Palate: Silky smooth and easy. Packed with flavour, caramel, smoke, fruits, butter and a bit of spice.
Finish: There’s some Islay malt in this which with the fruit helps the finish last longer than you’d imagine.
Thoughts: It’s not going to rock your world, but it’s a perfectly nice blend which is more interesting than many. If you liked the old Black Bottle (it’s now changed recipe) then you’d like this.
Available from Master of Malt for £20.26
