The Tweeddale Batch 3 Tasting Notes
Nose: Lemon & ginger with lovely, delicate notes of lemongrass. A combination of crisp granny smith apples (slightly sour but good) along with sweet sherry notes, raisins & smooth hints of vanilla.
Palate: Ginger, green apple & lemon zest, sultana, malty notes with hints of white chocolate.
Finish: Clean & fresh, nice flavours, subtle spice & vanilla.
Overall: A well crafted Scotch, a good summer dram. One of the best blends I’ve tried in a while.
