The Tweeddale Blend Old Matured Blended Scotch Whisky Tasting
The Tweeddale Blend Old Matured Blended Scotch Whisky – Aged 12 Years 46% Alc/vol 70cl – Un-chilled Filtered
Way back on the 25th of June Jim visited The Good Spirits Co in Glasgow to have a wee taste of the Tweeddale. On leaving this fantastic Whisky/Rum shop Jim purchased a bottle to add to the Whisky Boys tasting list.
This blend contains a 15 year old single grain Whisky from a sherry butt, there are eight single malts which range from 12 years to 21 years old. You can check out all about this second batch by visiting The Tweeddale Blend website.
Colour…Seville orange rind
Nose…Jumps up my nose and vaporises in a blast of very heavy spirit fumes.
Taste…Softens with tasty spice at the front of my tongue, strong and harsh, very full bodied and will keep you warm on a very cold night.
Finish…Long and hot.
Nose…Loads of alcohol fumes, malty with the slightest hint of sherry and fruit.
Taste…A big dram, nippy pepper spice fills the palate, some sweet sherry and chocolate covered raisins.
Finish…Long and very warming with spice.
This dram is just okay, did not do much for either Jim or Nicola, it is priced at around the £30.00 mark, which the Whisky Boys thought was too dear. There are many other blends out there that are far better and priced at a lot less, for example:-
These are but just a few and can be purchased online by using our shop window below:
But to finish on a high note, the Whisky Boys cannot recommend highly enough for anyone looking for a terrific range of Whiskies (also Rum, Vodka and other spirits and Champagne together with a large range of cigars) then the best place in Glasgow is The Good Spirits Co. in Bath Street which is in the heart of the city.
Check out their website www.thegoodspiritco.com and when you visit this shop and buy a bottle or three, tell them the Whisky Boys sent you.
