The March 2012 edition, issue 101 of the Whisky Magazine features batch 2 of The Tweeddale Blend in the tastings new releases and I am delighted to say it is Recommended.
The tasting notes and scores are provided by Gavin D. Smith and Rob Allanson (the editor).
Gavin D. Smiths gives a score of 8.3 with the following tasting notes;
Nose – Pear drops, then green herbal notes.
Palate – Real mouth presence, smooth and luxurious, sparkles with spice, plus brittle toffee and restrained fruit.
Finish – Toffee segues into gingery oak.
Comment – A lovely old-fashioned blend.
Rob Allanson gives a score of 8.9 and with the following tasting notes;
Nose – Lime marmalade, toast and honey, reminds me of throat soothers.
Palate – Orange peel, lime cordial, toffee notes abound. Gentle and elegant.
Finish – Quite short but packed with flavour, fruit and gentle wood spice.
Comment – A superb example of well thought out and careful blending.
