Blended Whisky of the Month – April 2011
Tesco’s Own Label – Tesco Special Reserve Scotch Whisky – Oak Aged 40 Alc/vol 70cl
Now our regular readers will be asking why our blend of the month is a supermarket own brand. But on this occasion there is a very good reason and that is “THE NOSE” also known as Richard Paterson, who the Whisky Boys met at Whisky Live Glasgow 2010.
He is Whyte & Mackay’s Master Blender, and was named ‘Whisky Ambassador of the Year’ at Whisky Magazine’s Icons of Whisky Awards.
Last year, Richard celebrated 40 years in the Whisky industry and this award recognises his service to not only to Whyte & Mackay but to his continual efforts to promote Whisky around the world.
This dram is an excellent every day Whisky, but to have been specially blended by this grand master blender is certainly quite a bonus.
So the next time you are shopping in Tesco’s pick up a bottle for only £11.99 and the Whisky Boys are sure you will not be disappointed.
