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 72.91 points

  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 68 points Expert Senior

    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.

  3. zinaf scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Quite fair and enjoyable.
    • 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

  5. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    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 :(

  6. erogers scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • 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.

  7. ThS scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    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.
