Scotch Whisky - Blended - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
Interesting fact… Pig's Nose whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Pig's Nose whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Gristy and youthful, some fruit, barley malt, porridge. Young but very sweet.
Palate: Creamy and sweet. Soft, gentle, quite gristy, rather oily and slightly coastal. Hints of salt.
Finish: Medium length, salty butters and caramel.
I'd never heard of it but the Denver restaurant that I had dinner at last night poured Pig's Nose. Very good alternative to my "normal" Dewars!

very light, sweet, and pleasant. like chewing a juicy candy that has flavor a of sweet sugary butter. second the review above - Not in the same vein as Walker...Almost no smoke present in Pig's Nose.

Extremely mild. More mild than Chivas. That's saying a lot. But perhaps this is a good place to start? I don't agree with the other reviewer who compares it to JW Black. There's no robust flavors, no burn, nothing. Not offensive, but I'm stressing mild here.

Less expensive than JW Black, but just as nice. Flavors are different of course, and while Pig's Nose may be less balanced than Black Label, it makes up for it in the flavor department. Very malty and rich for a blended. Where it really compares to JW Black is in how satisfying it is. You won't ever get bored with this whisky.
