Tweeddale 12 Bottling Note
The second batch of the Tweeddale blend, made up of whiskies that are at least 12 years old, as opposed to the original 10 year old. A beautiful blend, made with 15 year old sherry butt-matured grain whisky, as well as single malts which are aged for between 12 and 21 years old.
Great stuff for the price
A great blend from Alastair Day, who has revived his great grandfather's blending notes. Prominent sherried grain notes make for a blend with a lot of character and at a good bottling strength. Lots of body, vanilla and dried fruit and those gluey grain notes, slight smokiness too. Not for those who like their blends smooth and balanced, this has got personality. Personally, I love it!
