The Tweeddale is a blend of one single grain whisky and eight malt whiskies aged for 14 years. Its high malt content (50%) gives a full bodied and slightly spicy character accentuated by the inclusion of some Sherry casks. The recipe was inspired by a blend created by Coldstream Grocer Richard Day in the early 20th-century, using whisky from the same nine distilleries.
Nose - Spiced milk chocolate, vanilla Galore, sugared nuts and fresh lemon curd. All engulfed by sweet malty cereal goodness and baked apple, and a wee hint of smoke.
Palate - Oily and lovely mouth feel. Quite spicy with pepper and ginger then getting more dark chocolate , cloves and rap touch of bitter espresso and candied almonds.
Finish - Warming. Sweet sultana coated by dark chocolate praline. Drying and medium to long.
