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.
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.

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.
