Tweeddale Batch 4 Review

Tweeddale batch 1 The following are my notes from taking part in a Twitter Tasting of Tweeddale Whisky Batches 1 to 4 as organised and presented by Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire .

In batch four the single grain is 16 years old from a refilled hoghead. Seven of the malts are from the same casks as batch 1, 2 & 3 just older (14 to 21 years old). The lowland malt is 14 years old, matured in an Islay cask. The 4th release has natural colour, is not chill filtered and bottled at 46% abv. A limited edition of 1,420 hand numbered bottles.

I was really looking forward to this one and i wasn't disappointed, time to go buy a bottle i think.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Much more subtle than batches 2 or 3 this has a wee hint of smoke coming through first, followed by fresh malt loaf then you wade through some lovely vanilla notes, ending with pear drops and freshly cut grass. Still some proper opiary honey in here too.

Palate

Sugary sweet on the tip of the tongue before it hits chalky smoke and then edges back into fruit and oriental spices

Finish

sweet and spicy fantastically smooth and easy to drink
