The Woodsman (40% abv) blended scotch whisky release is part of a promise to bring new, younger drinkers into the scotch category by giving traditional blend behaviours and flavours the chop. The Woodsman release is the latest in a long list of announcements from Whyte & Mackay, following a surge in investment to boost its commitment to innovation and an increase in global marketing expenditure across its portfolio. Tasting notes: “Matured using a mix of freshly-built oak casks from Ohio, which gives it a hint of vanilla and spice, and ex-bourbon barrels double-scorched in Scotland for an extra depth, adding more vanilla sweetness and a hint of woodsmoke.”
