Launched in 1977, as a stable mate for Sheep Dip vatted malt, Pig's Nose is a blend of Invergordon grain whisky with Speyside, Lowland and Islay malts - all aged for at least five years. Like Sheep Dip, Pig's nose is blended by Whyte & Mackay's Master Blender, Richard Paterson. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/03/2012

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Tack room leathery nose with pungent maltyness and faint salt and seaweed beach aromas.

Taste

Sherry sweet, well-rounded palate with pronounced maltyness but apparently lacks the depth and polish access to the right inventory provides. Perhaps the blender did make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Aftertaste

Sultana noes emerge in the lightly peated, slightly smoky, leathery finish.
