Copper Dog is a blended malt bottled at 40% abv, the whisky combines eight Speyside Single Malts supplied by the world’s largest Scotch whisky producer Diageo.
The name ‘Copper Dog’ comes from an old device made from copper tubing and used by distillery workers to sample the whisky at home if you catch my meaning?
Nose: Fresh fruit and toffee apple; an integration of ripe orchard fruits (apples and pears), berries and a hint of citrus, layered above a background of sweet wood and creamy vanilla fudge.
Palate: Rich creamy mouthfeel, toffee apple, caramelised sugars, soft fruits and a gentle wood presence. With water, fresher fruits become more pronounced on the nose (Bramley apple, Conference pear), alongside grape skin, green pear and more wood spice. Subtle, distant spices help carry the fruit and vanilla characters, giving a long and creamy finish.
