Described in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2006 as "A big, sweet, chunky, gawky, grainlashed but hugely enjoyable blend."

Pigs Nose is an exceptionally fine five year old blended whisky, created by Richard Patterson, Scotland's only third generation master blender as a companion for Sheep Dip - for week days but not for 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 "soft as a pig's nose."

Colour: Rich, golden copper highlights.

Nose: Delicate and refined. 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.

Taste: Finesse and elegance gives way to a majestic assertion of pure malty flavours drawn from the four distilling regions of Scotland. Each area forges and makes its own inimitable contribution to this outstanding pure malt - the main accent being expressed from the Highlands and Speyside Valleys.

Producer Information

Spencerfield Farmhouse, their HQ, sits upon the high ground to the east of Inverkeithing in Fife, surrounded by fields of wheat and barley and Scotland overlooking the Firth of Forth and the monumental Forth Rail Bridge. Here the house has stood since it was built around 1510 as a defensive tower house watching over Inverkeithing harbour and guarding the trade routes between the Highlands, Edinburgh and the south.
In 1559 the land at Spencerfield was gifted by the Franciscan Friary of Inverkeithing to John Scott. The farmhouse was initially built as a defensive tower house with an outlook across to Queensferry and the Forth in the south, to Dunfermline in the north and westward to Stirling. Four stories tall with crow stepped gables to a z-plan design with an entrance to the second floor on the north face in shadow where enemies found it more difficult to observe comings and goings of the inhabitants.
Life remained turbulent in Scotland and after Charles II was executed in 1649 Cromwell sent troops north to deal with the traditional royalist supporters. After a winter of bombarding the Fife coastline in 1651 the battle of Inverkeithing was fought and Cromwell's troops were victorious; if that can describe leaving 2000 Scottish royalists dead on the battlefield near Rosyth Castle. Awaiting transport back across the Forth the troops were billeted at the house where their celebrations fuelled with whisky from the distillery next door got a little out of hand; the revelry resulted in the soldiers setting light to their gunpowder store and blowing off the east wing of the house. The house was then ransacked before they left according to the historian Reverend Wm Stephen with 'a great quantity of silver plate, arras, hangings, carpets and other household plenishing'.
However, enough survived of the house for it to be featured in Blaeu's famous Atlas of 1654.
