J.G. Thomson Sweet

What they say

Our Sweet Blended malt is packed full of delicious flavour. The nose offers a mix of caramel biscuit, fresh vanilla pods and clean coconut. On the taste you can find almonds, toasted hazelnuts, rich fudge, cinnamon custard and liqueur chocolates. What makes this so unique is our cask selection and type. We use a unique mix of new toasted oak casks, heavy toasted casks with a medium char,  and casks that have a heavy char but extra toasting on the cask heads. This allows us to fine-tune and select exactly how sweet we want this whisky to be. Bottled at 46%, unchill filtered and with no added colour, this is the perfect dram to explore just how sweet a whisky can be.
