VAT 69 is a famous old brand of blended whisky, chosen by Sir Ernest Shackleton to accompany him on his Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914 'for medicinal and celebratory purposes', and also famously the favourite whisky of Captain Lewis Nixon of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, immortalised in the book and TV series Band of Brothers.

    @Anonymous below, really? What a coincidence. My great great uncle also happens to be Ernest Shackleton, and he had this whisky on his trans-antarctic expedition.

    Great product. I grew up with this always in the house. William Sanderson, the distiller, was my great great uncle. How could we not have this around.

    Bought 6 bottles of Vat 69 since its on a price off at $10 here in Phils. What a Day! Just tried it a while ago and its perfect to the palate. Take it with just one ice cube per shot to your glass and its absolutely perfect.

    Don't forget that in the classic "Twelve O'clock High", Gregory Peck drank a glass with his CO.

    One could find a bottle of Vat69 in every bar in California in the 60's. The old saying was that one had to "acquire a taste for scotch". After my first scotch on the rocks (Vat69) I was hooked. Soon after I began to take it "neat". This may sound crazy but in England they often drank it with a coke back.

    I am reading all these blogs about finding out about this great whiskey from the movie series Band of Brothers. And I cannot believe how I agree with all of you that that is the exact way I came about this whiskey. I have now enjoy it for the last 8 years. I adore it screaming at and its lack of throat pain as it goes down. It will be one of my favorite Scottish blends for a long time to come.

    Not ashamed to say learned about Vat 69 from BoB. For the everyday drink this has been the default go to whisky you can pick up without calling the bank manager first, ever since.

    A beautiful blend. Even my friends who don't like whisky enjoy a taste of this as it's smooth and creamy. I always keep a few bottles at home and look forward to winter walks with my hip flask
