Insider knowledge: Pig's Nose whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Pig's Nose whiskey, as opposed to 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.
