The Oddbins Take

They Say

The name ‘Copper Dog’ comes from an old device made from copper tubing with a penny soldered to one end and cork in the other, which was used by distillery workers to smuggle whisky home. It is also the name of the bar at the Craigellachie Hotel. Blended by master blender Stuart Morrison, the 8 Speyside whiskies included in Copper Dog have been aged in a mixture of refill American and European oak casks, first fill Bourbon casks and rejuvenated casks, before being married in hogsheads.

We Say

Copper Dog sounds like it could well be a superhero, taking down people who spell whisky with an ‘e,’ through a mixture of biting and oxidatively turning their skin green. Yet, in actuality Copper Dog is not really one super hero but many, just like the Avengers... or the Power Rangers if you're from the 80's. On their own, the 8 whiskies that make up Copper Dog possess strength and virtue but when united, they combine to deliver a righteous nose of pear and dried apple, easing into classic Speyside notes of honeyed cereals.
