Whisky Reviews for White Horse Fine Old Blended Scotch Whisky
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 73.27 points
- Pretty decent for a cheaper basic blend and actually a favourite in it's price range (up to € 15). A mild amount of smoke, some citrus, vanilla, toffee and dusty caramel. The latter is also it's major flaw. There's so much colourant in this you can actually taste it.
- Palate is too thin & weak for me.
- Quite fair and enjoyable.
Slight peaty note, malty, hay, vanilla
Feels weak and flat but at the same time has some body and is rather chewy, as contradictory as it may sound. Pepper, salty tang, and of course vanilla.
short - slight peatiness; dry
- not completely bad, drinkable in a sense, needs water to drown the E150, sweet, citrus-y, malt, slightly bitter finish (nothing offensive), sadly i can't detect the slightest hint of Lagavulin :(
- A very solid, peat-influenced blend. The Lagavulin that is in this blend is very young, and asserts itself in a much milder way than I would have expected. There is a malty sweetness to this blend that at times offers an almost bourbon-like profile. However, the sweetness is well-balanced with the peat smoke notes, and makes White Horse a very traditional, classic blended Scotch in every sense.
Citrus, orange marmalade/Grand Marnier, salt, with some malt and peat.
Light, cut grass, hay, honey, and wet, mossy peat with smoke.
Short and fresh, with lingering oak, vanilla, caramel, and saltine crackers. A faint hint of smoke.
- Very good blend well balanced between honey, fruits and a sweet smoke.
- The picture of the back label has been taken by Jason Debly, who has made a very complete review of the white horse, that you can read there:
- Whiskyfun:White Horse (40%, OB, blend, +/-2013)
Colour: gold. Nose: I may be dreaming but I do seem to detect a kind of
tarry and rubbery side that hints at Lagavulin 16 (brand new wellies),
but Lagavulin being on pretty severe allocation, that seems unlikely.
And yet, I swear I could detect Lagavulin (not just Coal Ila or
Talisker). Other than that, some caramel, hay, vanilla, raisins and a
rather big maltiness. Not dull at all, it seems that the blenders have
kept an eye on the original recipe. Mouth: same feeling! It’s even quite
salty, tarry, smoky, leathery, with a little brioche and then a
pleasant bitterness, reminding me of artichoke liqueur. Or
Fernet-Branca. It’s a little thin on the palate but certainly not flat.
Cool character. Finish: short and dry, as expected, but the tarry
smokiness lingers on in solo, so to speak. Comments: a pretty good
surprise. If you like your blend quite peaty and fairly priced, you may
try to ride the current White Horse. SGP:353 - 80 points.
