Described in Jim Murrayâ€™s Whisky Bible 2006 as â€œA big, sweet, chunky, gawky, grainlashed but hugely enjoyable blend.â€, Pigs Nose is an exceptionally fine five year old blended whisky.
Pigâ€™s Nose was created by Richard Patterson (Scotlandâ€™s only third generation master blender) as a companion for Sheep Dip for week days, but too good to put in the 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 â€œsoft as a pigâ€™s nose.â€
