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.

    A great scotch. I usually drink single malts but this is right up there with some. I drink scotch neat with just a splash of spring water.

    I tried this at the Copper Dog pub at the Craigellachie and bought a bottle on the spot. Rich, smooth, creamy, fruity, sweet - a cracker of a speyide whisky! Dont let the 'blend' tag put you off as this is a really good Scotch.

    Just tried it at Vienna Airport. Good value for money for a quick drink, but no long lasting taste.

    A big fan of Speyside products. This is a smooth easy to sip neat Scotch. Good flavors come through when neat or with an added cube.
