Pigs Nose

Pigs Nose is described in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2006 as “A big, sweet, chunky, gawky, grainlashed but hugely enjoyable blend.”

An exceptionally fine, five year old blended whisky, it was created by Richard Patterson, Scotland’s only third generation master blender as a companion for Sheep Dip, and is tipple whose suggested consumption is more appropriate on week days, rather than with Christmas Cake.

The blend contains a high percentage (40%) of malt whiskies, principally from Speyside imbuing the product with their characteristic softness; the name comes from the farming expression “soft as a pig’s nose”

This signature smoothness has been enjoyed the world over for more than 40 years.

Colour:
Rich, golden, sandy copper highlights. Clear and bright.

Nose:
Delicate and refined. Soft sensual floral notes arise in perfect harmony supported by an attractive array of complex fruit flavours. Melon, pear and orange with a hint of almonds conclude this profusion of charming nuances. Plenty of finesse and breeding.

Taste:
Finesse and elegance gives way to a majestic assertion of pure malty flavours drawn from the four distilling regions of Scotland. Each area forges and makes its own inimitable contribution to this outstanding pure malt – the main accent being expressed from the Highlands and Speyside Valleys.

    I was very interested to read about your approach with regards to using social networks and media to promote your whiskey. We have a series of music and lifestyle events coming up during the year with the likes of FORD MOTOR COMPANY and PUMA clothing and the VOLVO OCEAN RACE. Your company is exactly the type we would like try and involve in these events and having looked after Pernod Ricard for the past 4 years in all there labels we hoped you might be interested in letting us explain how we might be able to involve you in some large events for a relatively low cost. It would be great to hear from you. If you would like to call me my number is 07930849069. In the mean time i wish you continued success with your business.

    Best Regards Tom Johnson
