Tweeddale "Grain of Truth" Highland Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $45)

SKU #1482928 Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Toasted coconut, custard cream biscuits, vanilla, freshly peeled banana skins, and ice cream wafers make this an enticing olfactory prospect. Vanilla, lemon, cream, and shortbread, this puffs out beautifully with a tug of pepper, always in balance, before relaxing into lemon meringue pie territory, with those sweet lemons persisting into the finish. A mellow, well-balanced offering, but you’ll know the truth when you taste it. (JM, Spring 2019) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

The Tweeddale brand was created by the brothers John and Andrew Davidson in the mid 1800s. IN 1895, Richard Day was hired as an office boy and began to learn the art of blending. Mr. Day took over the business in 1923 and continued to buy and blend whiskies until World War II caused a decline in market viability. Day sold his stocks and retired. IN 2010, Alasdair Day inherited his great-grandfather's cellar book and the quest to recreate the Tweeddale Whisky was born. The Grain of Truth is not a blend at all, but an example of the component single grain whisky that might have been used in the original Tweeddale Blend. Made from an uncommon composition of 50% wheat and 50% malted barley, the whisky is matured in bourbon barrels and finished for nine months in fine Oloroso sherry hogsheads. Bottled at 92 proof and not chillfiltered, this is one of the most nicely composed and drinkable single grains available on the market today.

I'm totally in love with this great little grain whisky from the Tweeddale brand. A blend of 50% wheat and 50% barley aged in ex-bourbon for an undisclosed amount of time before being finished in Oloroso? It seems a bit too good to be true, but they pull it off incredibly well. This is easily one of the most single malty grains I've ever come across and is without a doubt my new summer whisky! The color is yellow gold. The nose is very pretty and very fruity, with the gorgeous tropical and orchard fruit - apricots, kiwis, litchi. Behind that hints of sherry spice and wisps of roasted nuts. On the palate we start to feel more of that Oloroso influence take over. Caramelized orange, roasted almonds, medium roast coffee beans and some exotic spices toward the finish. This really punches above it's weight and style class. Super happy to be selling this non-chill filtered single grain whisky for $45! A welcome oddity in a complex category.
