Tesco Tasting Notes

Tesco Special Reserve 3 year old Blended Scotch Whisky 40%

Tasted: Oct 2013

The nose opens with buckets of blanketing, dampening sweet caramel and toffee. Some edgy, coffee’ grain comes through along with a hint of peat smoke plus a light sherried richness. With time the herbal spirit shows.

The palate is awash with caramel and toffee with the grain fighting to show itself. Soft and relatively non-descript with a herbal spirit finish. For a heavily caramelised 3 year old it’s not too bad.

Re-Tasted: Oct 2015

Blended by Richard Pattison

A nose of youthful, crisp grain with plenty of thick sherry and a light earthiness.

The palate is young and a little raw but plenty of thick sherry covers its youthfulness. Medium length with a grainy finish. For its price there’s nothing wrong with it.
