Tasting 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 peated Grain of Truth is one of the most unusual and exciting examples on the market for this much misunderstood category. Bottled at 92 proof and not chillfiltered, this whisky is an uncommon composition of 50% peated malted barley and 50% wheat matured in bourbon barrels. This might be the world’s first ever release of a peated Single Grain Scotch Whisky.

    This is surely a strange offering. A single grain composed of 50% peat dried malted barley and 50% wheat. We're heading in a whole new direction with this one. And on the nose, it's very unique indeed. We don't have a ton of details about the source or the maturation, but the experience was to unusual to pass up and in the end this is really fun whisky to drink despite it not fitting into any of the usual boxes. The color is white wine. An odd flinty kind of smoke, oyster shell, fresh paint and a feeling of brine that's for some reason not quiet ocean-y. On the palate, more of the fresh earthy peat, very distinct and with a light to medium body. With a drop of water, things start to open up a bit the nose adds some herbal qualities, a bit of wormwood and gentian. More campfire smoke now and a bit of that chemically camphor aroma. On the palate, the water has added sweetness behind the fresh smoldering peat. While not nearly as pretty and straight forward as the regular grain of truth, this is definitely a fun whisky to drink particularly for people who want to challenge themselves a bit and don't mind a bit of that old peat smacking you around a bit.
