Pig's Nose Bottling Note

Created by Richard Paterson, the chap behind the Sheep Dip range, comes another farmyard-themed whisky - it’s Pig’s Nose! Fear not, of course there weren’t actually any snouts harmed in the making of this blend. The reason behind the name is because it's as 'smooth as a pig's nose', as the saying goes.

To be honest, we’ve never actually touched a pig’s nose, though after tasting this whisky we’re sure they must be very smooth indeed.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Pig's Nose Reviews

Very very nice

Very nice. I agree it is probably though I can't confirm it as soft and as smooth as a pigs nose. Enjoyable and unfortunately easy to drink.

30th April 2019

Sweet and salty - For the price good value. A very good base blend.

For Blend of at this price it is great.

This is not on the same level as Single Malts at the same price such Tamnavulin Single Double Cask which might be a few pounds more and a superior Whisky.

However, this is interesting and actually has a very good after taste which I was not expecting on after the first sip.

I found it to be nice blend of sweet and salty.

Smooth

Its really smooth.

Enjoyable

An enjoyable, smooth, palatable and moreish Friday night dram .... loved it

26th July 2018

worth the price, try it

interesting that monkey shoulder is lumped into the same heap of blended scotches, to those unfamiliar with scotch i routinely recommend monkey shoulder as it is easy on the palate, pig nose despite its relative smoothness and muted peat is not for the faint of heart, rather it is for the tested palate that knows what it's looking for, smoke with with a hint of plum or raisin is how i would describe it, certainly worth the risk

It's pretty good.

Pig's nose is a pretty good blend for how inexpensive it is. I will say that the same distillery makes Sheep Dip which is the tastier counterpart to this blend. But if you're new to scotch, need a cheap bottle, or just want something that doesn't punch your palate... this is a decent blend. It's very smooth, has hints of dessert flavors like caramel (with a peach aftertaste... yum), and is very cheap. This is typically the bottle I pull for drinkers that aren't experienced with scotch. Give it a try, you're not losing out on a lot.

Buy something better.

This is not bad but really it is not that great.
Either buy better or not at all, life is too short to be drinking second rate whisky.

Not going to expand upon my review.

First of all, a reminder of the old adage - 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'!. There have been some very mIxed reviews of this whisky (Who had the gall and ignorance to call it WHISKEY!!!) A little humility would not go amiss. Every opinion expressed here is just that - OPINION! Given the choice, I'm a malt man every time, but I'm still happy to savour the pleasures of blends. Peat is pretty much a personal taste. I like peats; I like many which are not peaty; some people hate peats. That does not mean peats are bad - it is all down to individual preference and taste; some of the reviewers on this website would do well to remember that! Personally I found Pig's Nose smooth, mellow and very palatable, maybe more so because it was a gift from a friend because I regularly cut his grass. Harsh critics need to lighten up

24th August 2017

Waste of malt or corn, not sure which!

Sorry, I always thought Scoresby was the worst. Now I have a new one. Save your time, money and liver!

10th June 2017

Don't buy.

absolutely awful. it tastes like alcohol and corn mash.

17th February 2017

Good value

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.

16th December 2016

Review was spot on...

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!

8th December 2016

smooth with a capital smoo

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.

6th August 2016

Not sure yet

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

17th April 2016

Having a taste at Twisted Tail

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

24th March 2016

on my second tasting with this three stage wiskey

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.

25th February 2016

My favorite

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

16th January 2016

Silky Smooth...

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...

10th January 2016

So smooth.

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

19th December 2015

Over 9!!!

Abosolutely splendid! Stanisław Remuszko and his nameday's guests, Warsaw, Poland, 13.11.15

15th November 2015

Very smooth, tastes more mature than it is.

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.

pig nose whiskey

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

15th August 2015

for what it is, as good as it gets

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.

13th July 2015

A light whisky good for what it is

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.

1st June 2015

Not as smooth as Grouse

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.

25th April 2015

nice smooth tipple

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

Most enjoyable start to my evening meal.

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.

29th December 2014

well worth a try

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.

6th December 2014

Great blend

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!

27th November 2014

best ever

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

Is it really?

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.

pigs nose

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

24th August 2014

Great find

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

Uncomplicated and pleasant

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

An OK alternative to a smooth, daily tipple ala Chivas

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

Full bodied and enjoyable. A nice alternative to Johnny Walker black.

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.
