Whisky or Whiskey
What's in a name? Whyte and Mackay 13 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Whyte and Mackay 13 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.

The nose is quite rich and well-balanced. There are notes of oak and resin, a touch of sherried peels and Oloroso, a little honeyed sweetness. The palate is quite thick with a good mouth feel. There are notes of honey and sherry and a little smoke. The finish is of good length.
not very nice
Whyte & Mckay Thirteen
Alcohol and wood almost kill me at first... this is the worst and cheapest 12 years old "or more"... whisky i ever taste.

I’ve never been a big fan of the standard ‘Special’ Whyte & Mackay, don’t get me wrong I’m not a malt snob, I am capable of enjoying a dram of cheap blends but I’ve always thought ‘Special’ is a bit too sweet and has too vague malt character, it is dominated by the young slightly rough grains helped only by a bit of sherry cask influence. This ‘Thirteen’ though is leagues ahead of ‘Special’, the grain whiskies seem to have been smoothed out with the extra time in the casks, the malt character is a bit more pronounced and it has a more clearly defined sherry influence. In my opinion it’s one of the best value whiskies money can buy, anyone that says this is a poor whisky doesn't know what they’re talking about.

Starts off ok with reasonable malt whiskey aromas & sweet / creamy in the mouth, but the finish is just grain spirit which made me shudder.
Probably just right to finish a heavy evening in a Glasgow boozer. But for me this bottle is going to the back of the cupboard, its barely drinkable.

Forgot to give this a star rating on my previous post.

Easy to drink.
Good beginner whisky. Nice rounded flavours and very easy to drink. Though lacks any real distinguishing characteristics. Would recommend for anyone just getting into whisky drinking. But if you are looking for something more complex then maybe not the whisky for you.

After I tried special, which is actually a nice entry level blend, this tasted like a really cheap armagnac and is obviously dissapointment. Richard Paterson should be ashamed!

I am from America and all my gay friends love this whisky! You'll be taking Favre pictures in no time.
