A great value, smooth 5 year old blended whisky from the creators of the 'Sheep Dip' range. It's as 'smooth as a pig's nose', it is. Created by Richard Paterson.
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.

Not bad at all for the price. Initial impression was that it reminds me slightly of Famous Grouse, but has a more complex, interesting flavour. Quite smooth and easy to drink, with just a slightly harsh tang on the finish. Definitely one of the better cheap-ish blends out there.

Received a bottle as a gift, the giver knows I'm a Tomatin, Glen-12 and -10 fan, and I was initially underwhelmed by the lack of peat but pleased with the flavor...After the second or third drink, I became more attached to the young malt. Nice palate, great finish, entirely tasty. Won't replace the Tom12, but still a great scotch. Cheers!

As a big Oban fan, lover of the peaty, smoky burn, I am surprised by how much I like this young, crisp blend.A great tongue tingle for a great price.

Very smooth. Not harsh like many other Scotch products.

Recently purchased a bottle of Pig's Nose; not sure of my assessment...yet...back soon.

Very smooth finish, not sweet. Nice aromas of coffee, Carmel. Wish there was was a bit of peat

This one is not quite to my liking. Tasting - it starts with, to me heavy corn mash, I can't get over it, this can't be right corn mash? The mid is interesting, pleasant, short, then i'm left, lastly with overwhelming sweet syrup and corn mash notes again. I will let it breath a bit and try her again in a few days, whisky changes with time and hopefully this pig will put on some lipstick.

I am a scotch lover, and this is by far my favorite

An easy drinker, to be sure. No real hint of anything except a sweet vanilla finish, and no real alcohol puff in the nose either. In my opinion, best enjoyed as an after dinner drink in place of a cordial, but would probably be good for a late night poker marathon with the buddies. The way a blend should be...

This is a lovely whisky everyone out there should give it a try. Very mild, beautiful.

I am apprehensive about buying new whisky's before I try them but I took the the modest plunge on Pig's Nose. What a value. Nice, noticeable but not overpowering peat flavors, a well made blend that won't make you hide your receipt from the wife.

It's amazing I just wanted to buy more. Lovely flavour just slips down amazing whiskey.

I see all these reviews saying it's too mild, which is literally what this scotch claims to be. i love Hunter S Thompson as much as anyone but saying Chivas beats this is insanity. For the price, you literally cannot do better. This stuff is so easy to drink, and so tasty, that the only way to slag it is calling it exactly what it advertises itself to be. truly exceptional stuff. when you bring in the price, it's a no brainer. you'll kill a bottle of this on your second beer, it's that good, 10/10 five stars, it is exactly what it claims to be. i don't mind throwing down money for a good single malt but oh man this stuff is on point if you're on a budget.

I was at a bar in Washington DC and tried Pigs Nose. Its not JW Black or Red, It does not have the complexity. Its not comparable to Chivas it does not have the smoothness and finish. It is a light whisky good for what it is. I prefer a peatier flavor. It was worth trying its at a good pricepoint. Would be good for mixing.

Famous Grouse ( or as I deem it, Plesant Pheasant ), is smoother. PN is nice with notes of raisins and barley, but more bite consistent with young whisky. My hunch is FG has more age.

Restaurant had a large list of whisky's but non that I would usually drink and the prices quite high. The name caught my eye and the tasting notes made it look like it was worth a try. It was very pleasant and I must get a bottle for home.
15th March 2015
Had a bottle given for Xmas. Not keen on the name but the contents were excellent. Smooth and strong without the raw fire that some blends have. I shall buy more at this reasonably priced product.Memory man.

Having just finished my first bottle of Pigs Nose I nose I will be back for more. A very smooth whiskey at a very good price.

Tried this for the first time in a pub last night. Caught my eye, thought what is that and tried it out. Quality blend, raisony malty smell; sweet, fudgy and buttery taste. Not a bad price either!

I am from Utah usa. And I'm a bourbon drinker. But I asked about scotch and said I just don't like the peat flavor in most scotch. He recommended pigs nose. Well now I'm hooked. I start the night with one glass and before I know it the bottle is gone. It s like liquid carmel. So smooth and tasty. Honestly I'm in love.
13th November 2014
Yes it is. It is genuinely smooth, delicious and goes down very easy. It is now my favourite whiskey and I recommend it to everyone. Take a bite and hope that the pig doesn't bite back.

I was given this whisky by my grandson for my birthday and I found it absolutely delicious. So smooth and creamy,my fiance even found it lovely to the palate and I had to hide it

I'd never heard of it but the Denver restaurant that I had dinner at last night poured Pig's Nose. Very good alternative to my "normal" Dewars!
24th May 2014
very light, sweet, and pleasant. like chewing a juicy candy that has flavor a of sweet sugary butter. second the review above - Not in the same vein as Walker...Almost no smoke present in Pig's Nose.
18th December 2013
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.
15th August 2013
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.
