So named for texture is as soft and smooth as a pigs nose, this five-year-old whisky has a bright golden tint and mild notes that balance fruit and sweet vanilla. Add a splash of water to bring out light smokiness and still more vanilla." ~K.N.
The blend contains a high percentage (40) achieved through combining oak-aged Speyside, Islay and Lowland malts with superior Invergordon gentle grain whiskies. The name comes from the farming expression soft as a pigs nose"...Soft sensual floral notes arise in perfect harmony supported by an attractive array of complex fruit flavours. Melon, pear and orange with a hint of almonds conclude this profusion of charming nuances."

Pig's Nose, produced by The Spencerfield Spirit Company, is situated at Spencerfield Farmhouse, Inverkeithing in Fife, Scotland. Surrounded by fields of wheat and overlooking the Firth of Forth, The Spencerfield Spirit Company believe in producing quality, hand-crafted spirits for the more discerning consumer.
This exceptional blended Scotch whisky was created by Richard Patterson, Scotland's only third-generation Master Blender; it was originally launched in 1977. The backbone of this whisky is Invergordon grain whisky, acknowledged as one of the highest quality and lightest grain whiskies in Scotland, which has been aged in fresh, first-fill American oak barrels. This is complemented by five first-class single malts--three from Speyside, one from the Highlands and the final 5% from Islay for a pleasingly peaty finish.
