Insider knowledge: White Horse whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be White Horse whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Good balance and complexity with hints of oak, smoke and toffee. There's a good fruity note, with plenty of malt.
Palate: Really malty and quite sweet with honey, fruit and toffee. Supple and sumptuous.
Finish: The finish is long and quite complex with notes of oak, peppy spices, and creamy vanilla.
I can imagine americans who don't even know what the peat is don't like this. I think this above average blend. Not great, but a good one.

Hey there! As whisky is made with barley, water and yeast, there shouldn't be anything that doesn't class it as vegan! However, maturation in sherry butts can render it non-vegan. The sources I can find online say that White Horse is vegan, but I cannot guarantee that this is still true, I'm afraid! Your best bet would be to get in touch with the distillery directly. Apologies for not being more helpful! --The Chaps at Master of Malt

White Horse is a preferred drink for me, family and friends. 99% of the time we choose to drink White Horse because of its unique taste and aroma. Compliments to Lagavulen Distillery, keep up the good work guys. Cheers- four fingers!!!!

well, some of the reviews seem to praise this one - maybe it's just my faulty palate, but drinking this bottle was like smoking a cheap cigar. It's not bad on the first sip, I agree with the review below that states the same, but I'm afraid we enede up drinking up the bottle just so it doesn't go to waste. The taste of the first sip degrades into unpleasant "cheap booze" taste soon..

Had heard decent things about White Horse before trying it, but found it to be horribly awful.
To me, it just tasted like perfumed spirit, and left an uncomfortable burn in my throat.
No pleasant tastes whatsoever, just nasty like cheap alcohol.
It could be that I got a (very) bad bottling - I'll probably never know because I doubt I'll ever taste White Horse again.
I'll ask my mate for a second opinon, but if he doesn't like it, it's going down the sink.

A solid blend. Fairly sweet, almost syrupy, with just a nice hint of smoke. It lacks complexity, but it's good value nonetheless.

Good Scotch for a night by the fire. Compared to Vat 69 it is a little more complex and has a stronger finish.

Wonderful on the first sip. Smokey and savory. Quickly devolves into a syrupy and oily dram with flavors of cheap cooking oil and cured meats. Gross I know. Halfway through the bottle I was bummed because I don't waste and knew I would have to get through the stuff. It really set me up to be let down because it started off beautifully.

This can be aptly described as a solid old world blend. Robust, right amount of peatiness (someone informed that at the heart of this blend was Lagavulin), rich in taste and aroma. An old favourite (have seen the bottle as a toddler!), but unfortunately, don't seem to find it either in the local market in India nor at the duty free shops. Scores over many expensive blends and malts; truly a characteristic whisky.
