The Tweeddale Blend Batch #1

by Oliver Klimek on July 28, 2011

10 years old – 46%


My Tasting Notes

Colour: Medium gold
Nose: After an initial whiff of grain there is mild fruit, nuts, vanilla and a tiny bit of smoke.
Palate: Honey, vanilla, apples, orange zest, hints of mixed mixed nuts, pepper and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, dry and slightly spicy.
Overall: Quite nice for a blend of this age, with a rather complex flavour profile. It feels a bit “edgy” though

Rating: 81/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

I was wondering about this too. I think the two additional years could make a difference, but I haven’t tasted the #2 yet.

Batch 2 has arrived at Emporium Towers and although I haven’t written my notes for it yet, my first impression is “very different from #1, very nice, love the coconut leading into the finish which is very reminiscent of Glendullan”.
