COPPER DOG

Copper Dog is a Scotch whisky that sums up all that is good about Speyside. A combination of eight single malts, Copper Dog is deliciously fruity with a hint of honey and spice.

TASTING
NOTES

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.

NOSE Big blast of fresh fruit – Bramley apple, cherries and grapes – then sweeter notes of Bakewell tart, sponge cake and a dash of lemon oil. Some cinnamon and nutmeg in there, too, but overall, clean and bright.

PALATE Very clean and refreshing, with orchard fruit, roasted almonds and freshly baked sponge cake drizzled with honey. Subtle creaminess and notes of vanilla and toffee.

FINISH Lovely balance between the clean fruit and soft honey.

ABOUT
COPPER DOG

Copper Dog Named after a device used to sneak whisky from the cask to smuggle home, Copper Dog has that same irreverent, cheeky spirit without losing the classic Speyside tradition. It was created by master blender Stuart Morrison as a tribute to all distillery workers, and has its roots in The Craigellachie Hotel, located in the heart of Speyside whisky country.

    Very drinkable but also with lots of character. Tasted this while the Speyside gents were in DC and can't wait to get my hands on a couple bottles!
