Insider knowledge: The Tweeddale 12 Year Old (Batch 2) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Tweeddale 12 Year Old (Batch 2) whiskey, as opposed to 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!
