Insider knowledge: VAT 69 Blended Scotch Whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be VAT 69 Blended Scotch Whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
I got this Scotch because I saw it in the Band of Brothers. It was the drink that Lewis Nixon drank. This was hands down the best blended Scotch I have had. Even with the shipping to the US it was well worth the money. It was very smoth.
This is my favorite scotch. As much as i love the taste, the coolest thing about this whiskey is that it does not get more old school than Vat 69. Cheers.
Its by far the best booze. ever. When I go drinking, I drive only VAT. Only for a Nixon! ;)
Its like you are having kerosene too much grain whisky for someone who likes to take the malt ones. I spent money on this once..never again..too sweet for me.
Not refined or subtle. Heavy wood flavors. Good strong burn. The weak won't like it. The old breed will have nothing else.
A touchstone favorites. Pretty smooth. Light, fresh and clean. An excellent whisky for hot climates.

I have sipped VAT69 thirteen years ago and have been a fan of it since.great flavour great aroma super smooth...love it!
It looks very expensive.
Spent many years in Nigeria, Kenya and Zimbabwe and this was always my Number One purchase at Gatwick and Heathrow.
i have a bottle V69 in the house from menstrie distillery 25 years ago for safe keeping.
a magnificent blend. As the last Plant Manager of the South Queensferry
Plant I can vouch for its quality. Sadly Diageo dont rate it highly enough
to invest in the UK market.
i first had this when i was in a trip with my friends,its really worth to pay for it.
I'm having a drink right now, really not bad considering the price (7,79€).
Having VAT 69 and loving it
Have tasted V69 in 2010 & i feel in love....love it...
I have tasted V69 in 2010 & i have since fell in love with it,i just love it............
Enjoyed it wid frnds, very smooth, never burns as it goes down ur throat, strong smell,no hangovers,light and quick effects immediately,sublime..
it's a great great blended whiskey, nothing complex or fancy, but you are not looking for that when you are buying this. Way better *(way!!) then red label, Jack Daniels, Ballantines, JB, Black Label...contender for Chivas Regal, but way cheaper. I would chose this over some of the "entry" level single malts to...but just some of them
I first heard of this brand reading Band of Brothers tried it and loved it this is a drink for real men damn right!
Vat 69 -Highland Cream- White Hourse
Nothing .....but really nothing (even Premium Blends with 12 years)
are better like this 3 brands of blended scotch!!
three old breed brands!
Yes of course I like Single Malt but why not sometimes a very good blend!
Blending like Vat69 or W.Hourse it's real Art!! Good save the Master-destillers for this magnificent work!!
Vat69 has a good strong flavor and a smooth light finish. It is good on the rocks or with a little water.It's affordable here in South America.
What people are calling a kerosine like taste I think is actually a really nice citrus skin bitterness, this is quality blend, and with a price tag of £16.70 this is definitely worth including in your next order.
An ideal summer dram with friends not too complex but just a very good, well made simple blend, with a wonderful interplay of vanilla, honey and wood, a Bargain..
Half-decent whisky, actually quite okay for being a cheap blended scotch. Obviously compares bad versus a single malt, even a young and rather cheap one, however that is expected due to it's price. The bottle is simply aesthetically embarrassing which adds that cheap feeling to the experience.
In my opinion this whisky needs a slight amount of water to be at its best.
I would buy a twice as expensive bottle anytime though, as taste is for me more important than the cost
