Father's Day Gift Guide: The Tweeddale 'The Evolution'
With Father's Day approaching, the award-winning craft whisky maker R&B Distillers 28-year-old whiskey The Tweeddale 'The Evolution' makes for a very impressive, gentlemanly gift.
R&B stands for Raasay and Borders, two uncommon terroirs brought together through one unique whisky company. The co-founder of R&B Distillers, Alasdair Day, is the great-grandson of Richard Day, a master-blender in Coldstream in the Scottish Borders during the 19th Century. Alasdair inherited his great-grandfather’s whisky ‘recipes’ which had been painstakingly recorded in a cellar book – the back of an accounts ledger. Alasdair has been recreating the original Tweeddale Blends since 2009.
The oldest Tweeddale to be released, it is fuller in character than previous impressions, with sherried and Speyside qualities. This 28-year-old whiskey boasts a richer flavour, with dark chocolate and black cherry on the nose followed by wood spice and earthy notes on the palate. Making a luxurious addition to a sophisticated drinks cabinet on Father's day..
