What's in a name? The Tweeddale 12 Year Old (Batch 2) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled The Tweeddale 12 Year Old (Batch 2) whiskey, rather than whisky.
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!
