User Reviews of the Haig Gold Label

Most disgusting whisky i've ever tasted

Smell of alcohol in the nose. And the taste is even worse. The finish aint that bad, but far far from perfect.

Nasty off notes.

Wow, my experience is so different to the first reviewer. I have tried this a couple of times and both times I found it marred by a distinctive 'industrial' note like burnt rubber or diesel or sump oil. Maybe it is an acquired taste but I would say Haig is best avoided.

Unique classic whisky virtues in Haig Gold Label

Smoky but with smoothness, Haig Gold Label from John Haig & Co distillers (since 1627, by the label), is a blended whisky that deserves much wider appreciation, as it is somewhat unique in the blended whisky category.

Seemingly as old-fashioned as the classic brown bottle in which it is offered, the special virtue of Haig Gold Label is that it offers much of the pleasure and character of single malt whiskies, along with the easy sipping and affordability of a blend.

Moderately smoky and peaty like many single malts, with light spice notes and an increasingly pleasant after-taste, Haig Gold Label has a simplicity borne of superb blending; it is naturally full-bodied, satisfying as a true 'real whisky'. The smoky character makes it perhaps more for experienced whisky tasters, rather than a 'first' whisky for someone to try, but whisky fans may find Haig Gold Label quite worth the sampling. After receiving a bottle as a gift it is now my favourite blended whisky of all.

An excellent straight whisky, also robust enough to be enjoyed with a fine cigar, or with a salty snack as well.
