Description

The Tweeddale: The Evolution is our oldest Tweeddale whisky to date, a blend of classic Speyside single malts and a Lowland single grain, with the youngest component whisky being 28 years old.

The original Tweeddale Whisky was produced in Coldstream in 1820 by J&A Davidson, and later continued by Alasdair’s great-grandfather Richard Day from 1899 until World War II. In 2009, Alasdair inherited his great-grandfather’s cellar book, and began re-creating The Tweeddale Whisky, with a focus on small batch aged blends and historic single casks.

From studying Richard Day’s cellar book, we believe that a complex expression like this embodies the vision and craftsmanship of the venerable Borders blender.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Golden amber.

Nose: Juicy Blackcurrant, creamy waxy notes, cherries and plums. A lemon icing note. On a second nosing, freshly baked pastries, and a hint of honey.

Palate: Big, full, juicy front palate. Christmas cake notes, blackcurrant and pear (almost glühwein-like fruity, sweetness) and a dash of orange zest.

Finish: Slight hint of American oak sharpening and structuring the finish. Touch of milk chocolate too.
