Copper Dog

Copper Dog Bottling Note

A blended malt Scotch whisky named after a little piece of kit used once upon a time by distillery workers to covertly sneak spirit home... Eight different single malts from Speyside are combined by master blender Stuart Morrison to create this well-balanced whisky, which is designed to be well-suited for enjoying neat or in cocktails and mixed drinks.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Peach, pear and dried apple. Classic Speysider honey'd cereal notes.

Palate: Chocolate digestives, nutty malt, orange peels and soft simmering spices.

Finish: Baked goods and honey-covered fruit.

PRICE £39.95 70cl

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Bourbon

Wild Turkey 56.4% Bottling Note

The Wild Turkey Rare Breed bottle has received a little bit of a redesign, it has! The shape is the same as before, but the label is new and shiny, as is the presentation tube (with focus on the 'shiny' bit). Rare Breed is Wild Turkey's barrel proof expression, and it now sits at a slightly-higher-than-previous-batches ABV of 56.4%.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Raspberry, with a hint of blueberry muffin too. Sawdust, citrus oil/marmalade and Jamaican Ginger Cake.

Palate: Still quite cake-y, though now it's closer to a particularly spicy fruitcake than a ginger cake. Fresh grapes, clove and brown bread with a touch of olive oil.

Finish: Medium length with caramel and pine resin.

PRICE £51.33 70cl
