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.

    Not Sam,

    Top 3 budget whiskies. Hands down. Great by itself, with water or as an old fashioned.

    robert collins,

    This is a whisky that knowledgeable whisky drinkers rate highly. It gives light touches of peat, fruit ( I find it peachy) and spice . Nothing is overstated and it hasn't been over-coloured with caramel like some lesser blends (JW red label for example). Its a great whisky at any price.If I had to choose just one whisky to share the rest of my life with it would be this one.

    Probably the most smoothest whiskey I have ever had, I really wish I can get it shipped to Canada, breaks my heart

    I've bought a bottle last month at just $7, here in Peru. I knew it wasn't going to blow my palate, but I'm a Shackleton fan and thought, "if it was good for him it's got to be good for me." Really mellow, easy to drink. I could say it is "boring" compared to my Glenlivet 18, but it just too damn easy to drink, smooth as hell. It has also become my "I don't like whisky" bottle for friends. At this price, it's going to be a fixture in my house.
