Spencerfield Spirit Co. // Scotland
Originally created in 1977 by Richard Paterson of the Sheep’s Dip Range, this 5-year-old blended whisky was light-heartedly named because it's as 'smooth as a pig's nose'. This whisky is produced with a high percentage (40%) of malt whiskies, principally from the Speyside offering up the region’s soft and supple characteristics lending the inspiration for its name. Smaller portions of Lowland and Islay malts provide balance and add to both the soft side and the deeper complexities of this blended whisky.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"Soft, complex fruits of pear, and apple shine with sweet creamy porridge aromas and hints of roasted almond. Big malty cereal flavors lead followed by oily nuts, light berries and hints of salty sea breeze and delicate wisps of peat smoke. This blended whisky finishes dry, with soft dried, dark fruit and an oh-so-subtle smokiness. Pig’s Nose is a great introduction to sipping Scotch, or plays incredibly well in cocktails."
