Today we’re reviewing a blended scotch by independent bottler Peg Whisky.
Peg Whisky are a new independent bottler who launched in late 2020. Their inaugural range included three expressions: a blended scotch; a small batch blend; and a single cask release. It’s an interesting approach that means they have an entry level whisky right through to a high end whisky. When we interviewed the founders of Peg Whisky, Mandeep and Kully, it was clear this was important to them - they felt, rightly so, that a good whisky should be a moment of celebration available to, and accessible for, everyone.
This particular expression is a Blended Scotch made with malt and grain whiskies and bottled at 40% ABV. It’s designed to deliver a unique flavour profile at an everyday price point. Let’s give it a go.
Peg Whisky Blended Scotch
Nose: Cereal and barley, with a note of orange and citrus, backed by a little wood spice.
Palate: There is malted cereal, combined with a sweetness in the form of toffee. There is more of that orange and citrus I found on the nose, which is accompanied by a menthol mintiness.
Finish: A medium, dry finish with more of that malted cereal.
Peg Whisky's Blended Scotch Review
A good quality blended scotch from the chaps at Peg Whisky. It's enjoyable both neat or in a cocktail (I think it's a fun whisky to be able to experiment with).
