What's in a name? Old Perth Number 2 Release whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Old Perth Number 2 Release whiskey, rather than whisky.
Good flavor profile, and well blended, apparently contains glenfidich and unpeated bruichladdich and you certainly get the glenfidich and in the nose bruichladdich. Also a slight drying if the throat.
Speyside/highland style not too much on the nose, applies the main drift, peppery on the palette, develops a bit sweeter with a drop of water ( to much water washes it down making the finish even more lightweight.) imagine contains some old scotch (not old but older style), overall nice and easy going with water has a similar feel to a young tomintoul.
Pity about he short finish or would rate it higher. But good value for money easy going dram.
