"Haig whisky is steeped in history since it was first distilled by John Haig in the old Cameronbridge Distillery Scotland in 1824. From these humble beginnings, Haig Whisky quickly rose to become one of the most successful and popular Scotch whiskies in the world before falling into decline some 30 years ago as it left the Haig family ownership and was passed through a series of multinational drinks companies.
The distillery meanwhile went from strength to strength and now in the ownership of Diageo is one of the largest distilleries in Europe.
Haig Dimple Pinch is the US version of Haig Dimple , also named after the unique shape of the bottle. Haig Pinch and Dimple are the upmarket brothers of Haig Gold blended whisky but with an age statement of 15 years and a heavier malt influence of whiskies from Glenkinchie and Linkwood. Haig Pinch was a Haig Whisky product for the American market and was bottled at the slightly higher strength of 43% ABV."
Caramel and burnt oak Try a splash of water to develop the nose.
Short Earthy finish with strong hints of peat, burnt caramel and a touch of sea salt.
This is a real man’s whiskey which despite a 15 year age statement can assault the taste buds with a 43% alcohol burn at first. However it quickly settles down to a warm, smooth caramel malty smoothness tinged with oak that will leave you wanting more.
