HammerHead gave this whisky 68 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.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

Slight peaty note, malty, hay, vanilla

Taste

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.

Finish

short - slight peatiness; dry

Comments

Quite fair and enjoyable.

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 :(

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Citrus, orange marmalade/Grand Marnier, salt, with some malt and peat.

Taste

Light, cut grass, hay, honey, and wet, mossy peat with smoke.

Finish

Short and fresh, with lingering oak, vanilla, caramel, and saltine crackers.  A faint hint of smoke.

Comments

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.

Très bon blend bien équlibré entre le miel, les fruits et une douce fumée.

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) Three stars 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.
