David Beckham has made his mark in the world of whisky with the launch of Haig Club. A light and sweet grain whisky, Haig Club is aimed at drinkers who have yet to be won over by whisky’s charms. Named after John Haig, the founder of Cameronbridge distillery (where the whisky is made), Haig Club is superb over ice, in long drinks or in short cocktails – it’s an easy-drinking dram that will win anyone over.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Toffee and bananas up front, with green grassy notes, and gentle ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon spiciness.
Sweet and creamy to start, with soft caramel and toffee. Lemon peel zestiness develops, with tingly cinnamon. Creamy lemon posset with a crunchy bar?.
Spice, toffee, soft anise and a touch of warmth.
Light and sweet with more complexity than you might expect. It's not a whisky that you'll be sitting down to examine over hours, but it does have good flavours, that are strong enough to shine through even when mixed.
More from Haig Club
It's the cheapest, low quality, water diluted drink sold with the name whisky associated with it. Pour a small amount into a whisky swivel glass, spin it a few times and then pour out the whisky, you'll soon see how much water is holding on to the side of the glass. You can pour it on your palm and it tastes just like water from the tap. Daily robbery of the highest order.
It's quite easy to explain why this either gets 5 stars or 1 star in reviews. It's a whiskey for people who don't like whiskey. Why anyone would want to pretend they did when they didnt is beyond me. But if you want it in a long drink or smothered in ice then it's perfect as anything added will drown it out. This is the light beer of whiskey. I was shocked at how bland and pale it was. There's hardly any flavour of anything at all. Aged? Pfft... please. For a week maybe by the taste. Marketing over substance with Haig. If you wear a watch for fashion not function, dress for the yacht on dry land or wear biker gear on a bus - go for it. If you like whiskey just dont waste your money.
The first time that I have ever tasted a single-grain whisky and it is surprisingly smooth, although the flavour is not very strong and is hugely different most single-malts or blended whiskies. Haig Club is the type of drink which would appeal to many people who can't stomach whisky because of its strong flavour, as it is quite drinkable but not for whisky purists.
Really decent single grain would buy again . As I say theres no such thing as a bad whisky only some are better than others
I bought a bottle of this not really knowing what it was and I find myself very disappointed. The whisky is really pale, it has little to no smell, it tastes very diluted and a little soapy.
