Another brand with a long and illustrious history, named after a famous Edinburgh hostelry. Containing around 40% malt whisky, White Horse has a pleasing honeyed palate accompanied by peaty undertones.
The Quality of Black Bottle has been getting worse recently, as well as Teachers.so this is best bang for your buck blend now. Unless you pay a big extra and get JW Black label.

A simple, pleasant blend. Fairly sweet but not cloying, a touch of smoke. Easy to drink but doesn't taste "cheap". Definitely good value. Of course, if you're looking for something deep and complex, this is not it.

"Nose" Touch of sherry, prunes and the citrus notes of over-ripe blood oranges. "Palate": Smooth, viscous, mouth-coating, creamy body. Blood oranges, buttery shortbread cookies, slight sherry, counter balanced by wild honey, lemon zest and very subtle peat and smoke. "Finish": Nice smokey finish with great malt notes. Hmm! Ginger and salty pretzel too.

10 years ago i rec'd an old bottle of White Horse from my folks. I used to hate whiskey, drank only bourbon. But I love this stuff! It's simply delicious. Maybe my tastes have changed. I see here a 1960's bottle is almost $400! The serial # on my bottle is lower than that one! I think it was already open when I got it, but I really can’t remember for sure. If it was open, it was almost full.

My dad introduced me to this after being asingle malt bore, and ws I impressed...all that richness and complexity at a fair price. and it dilutes well(which many blended procutcs don't achieve).

White Horse is one nice cheap whisky. Spirity, slightly burnt but not sooty. The malt content has a good unique flavor that didn't offend my taste buds. I had fun drinking this stuff little by little.

I have loved this brand for years, but why has the label changed and the Lagavulin content eliminated and the age given is three years. Sounds like a cheapening in the works to me.

Smoky,peaty,smooth,honey sweet but kind of watery. Light,short aftertaste but pleasant. In skandinavia expensive (state monopoly) 23 pounds. But in England good value for the money. Recommendable.

Fantastic blend, along with "Black Bottle" this is the best blend for its price point, its better than a lot of Scotch that costs twice the price.Beware of adding any more than a few drops of water.

Superb blend. It has become a regular order for me. Somebody new to whisky would do well to avoid this though - that "whisky taste" is at its powerful best here.
