Haig Club Clubman Bottling Note

When we first heard about the initial Haig Club being released with David Beckham we had a discussion at MoM Towers about what the price point would be. When it was eventually announced, however, it was quite a bit higher than the whiskies we'd previously assumed they'd be competing with. That's where Haig Club Clubman comes in, which will be the more "mainstream" variant.

The Clubman, a single grain Scotch whisky distilled at Cameronbridge and matured in ex-bourbon casks, is designed to be enjoyed with cola.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Inoffensive vanilla, nougat and caramel notes. With Beckham behind it, we can see plenty of vodka coke drinkers making the switch to Clubman and not looking back.

Haig Club Clubman Reviews

Not great.

If your not bothered about whisky then go for this. If you do prefer flavours and more texture then go elsewhere.

I bought a bottle when it was on sale to see the hype. Not the best at all. Pretty flat tasting for me. Wont buy again

9th December 2018

Agree with the review 4 down

When the occasion calls for a whisky and mixer this is perfect. Its not a single malt dont judge as so. Perfect for what it does

8th December 2018

Party Starter!

Lovely with lemonade.

30th November 2018

You get what you pay for

Avoid if you enjoy a decent scotch. I am always open to new whiskeys, especially ones on offer, however this was seemingly a mistake. Sweet. Almost pic'n'mix style aftertaste in mouth. I haven't tried this with coke, perhaps that may hide the spirit...

26th November 2018

Horrible, cheap and nasty

Oh dear — all fur and no knickers. Horrible, sweet and synthetic with a very thin taste of vanilla (like Galliano). So thin, the taste is drowned out by Coke. But strangely ... with a horrible salt and liquorice aftertaste. Avoid.

6th October 2018

Its a mixing whisky, get over it snobs

plenty of ice and cola with a lime wedge for me. refreshing. we cant be serious serious malt drinkers all the time

22nd July 2018

Not a bad JD substitute, but not a whiskey

As a jack daniels drinker and not a "whiskey" drinker I brought a bottle of clubman to try on holiday and after initially not being to impressed put it to the back of the cupboard when I returned home, I've since given It another go and on the whole I really like it mixed with coke to the point where I actually seem to prefer it over JD, it may not be to everyone's taste but if you like a JD&coke it's a cheaper option.

21st July 2018

Will buy again

It's 20 quid, what can you get for that? It's a warming, quite tasty young whisky on the whole. 7/10 enjoy. Just forget the Beckham ads

15th July 2018

I can only handle so much excitement

I'm basically hooked on island malts. These are fiery tempestuous beauties -what my doctor advises as 'something for the weekend.' Clubman, sans mixer, provides a detente for the taste-buds; a workaday leather armchair calling for pipe n'slippers rather than a surfboard.

20th June 2018

Not good.

Afraid I have to agree with the majority. Probably be ok to mix with coke, if that's what you like. It has an arrival of vanilla which quickly diminishes then your left with the burning in your stomach and no finish. I am no snob but I've drunk enough whiskies to know a good whisky when I taste one. For another £8 you could get yourself a nice Laphroaig 10 yo.

17th June 2018

Bland and boring

Not Scotch not vodka don’t know what they we’re thinking I’m a Scotch drinker so no go

27th April 2018

Decent bottle to keep handy in cupboard

Tried it because it was on offer at £15 for 70cl bottle, good value, can be drank with just a splash of water, no need for coke.

26th February 2018

Perfumed, whisky tasting cat urine

3 year old feline urine. Was interested so bought a miniature and was surprised at how poor it really was! I suggest you do the same would highly un recommend buying a bottle before trying.

12th February 2018

Mixer it is a must. The flavour is sweet overall .

Would not drink straight . But it's a nice sweet drink with coke . Not comparable to jd as some said , but it's good value for money. If you want something to sip you spend extra ,obviously, but if you want a bottle to take to a party with a mixer it's great

4th February 2018

Try with Vanilla Cola

With Vanilla Cola, plenty of ice in a tall slim glass, it’s perfect whether Winter or Summer. Good if you're in a club and want a different drink from JD

14th January 2018

I don't get the negativity

Mixed with cola it was tasty and not nasty. What do you expect for a whisky meant to mix?

3rd January 2018

Horrible

Terrible whisky, nice bottle. there are so many other, much better whiskeys to have with your coke. This is honestly one of the worst whiskys I have ever tried

29th December 2017

Sickly Sweet

I don't know whether to drink it or slap it on my face after shaving. Thankfully I chose the latter. Sickly sweet with a chemical smell.

19th October 2017

Don’t give up on me baby

Tastes like it would make a good Manhattan .. where’s them cherries ?

7th October 2017

Not nice at all.

Ouch! That is not a pleasant whisky to drink. Harsh on the nose and not a nice taste at all, and that's with it neat. Haven't yet tried it with a mixer, but I'm not holding out for much on an improvement. Probably would kill the coke. Thankfully I only paid £15 for it, but I honestly wish that for the extra £1, I'd bought the 1l of Grouse instead.

29th September 2017

Pretty bad....

Wish I had read these reviews before buying this. It really is pretty bad on its own. I'm not quite sure what it will add to coke that vodka wouldn't. Vodka has more flavour than this stuff. In fact, rubbing alcohol would probably have more taste. This to whisky what a one legged man is to an ar** kicking contest. David, you could always try rubbing it on if you run out of horse linement.

27th September 2017

Below par

A bit thin and weedy.....lacks depth and character. Glad I got it cheap.

24th September 2017

A Nice Change

As a single malt drinker, it will come as no surprise that this whisky doesn't hit my top ten list. That being said, I have to disagree with the one star rates. It would also seem that many people think that this whisky is only to mix with drinks like coke. I'm halfway down my first bottle drinking it neat and am not disappointed. This whisky would never be my firs choice go to whisky, it is however, a different whisky that I find perfectly drinkable. Get past your first few glasses (without a mixer), and you might just agree. Different can still be good.

17th July 2017

If McDonalds, Starbucks and X-Factor made a whisky this would be it.

This is basically an attempt to make an accessible whisky for people that just want something alcoholic to add to coke. The marketing, however, appears to have been designed to annoy anyone who actually already drinks and enjoys whisky. It's not a bad whisky. It's not a great one either. To say it is sweet is an understatement. Designed from the start to be used as a mixer (at least they're honest about this and actually it's a good idea-maybe some of the other producers should take note) and does this job well. It's better than most other blends at doing this job. Don't pay full price for it. £15 is about right if you can find it on offer. If you want to sip on a complex whisky in front of your fire then this isn't for you. If you're sunbathing in your garden or having a BBQ and you want a shot of whisky in your soft-drink then give it a go.

25th June 2017

Not for me, leave it to those that mix.

It's not a whisky drinkers drink. It's the type of drink that whisky mixing people will drink, not for the flavours or anything worth noting but for the ABV. It's set for just that market and will probably do well, but at this price anyone expecting a top quality whisky is an idiot.
Too sweet, and not much else to it, not my dram of choice.

17th May 2017

Good but no monkey shoulder

Without coke it's harsh but with a nice sweet after taste... with coke and crushed ice it's great. Given the choice of whiskey with coke I would go for monkey shoulder every time but, if that wasn't available I would happily settle for clubman. Worth £15

14th April 2017

too sweet

almost tastes like candy floss. very sickly after a couple of glasses and can feel teeth rotting away... stay away.

28th February 2017

Not for me thanks!

Vanilla, vanilla and more vanilla with a sweet floral/toffee scent. The only bottle of whisky that I have ever given away after one taste.

23rd February 2017

This was made to mix, FAB job

With coke this whiskey is transformed. Some one tell me a better whiskey for mixing, no peaty tastes need apply :)

1st February 2017

Aromatic and sweet - great entry level whisky

I'm a whisky drinker and I enjoyed it. Nice sweet aromas and sweet finish. Yes there's some burn but a lot of Whiskies have burn!! You think this burns try Dalwhinnie Winters Gold!! Anyway I enjoyed it and feel a lot of its bad reviews are due to the Beckham link....

31st January 2017

Good for cleaning paint brushes

Seriously bad. I am going to check if it will clean my paint brushes. If not I really don't see much point in this drink. Tastes and looks like a chemical. Supermarket own £9 a bottle scotch is much better than this. Even with coke it's disgusting.

14th January 2017

Paid for a nice looking bottle

Genuinely a tasteless over priced liquor. Any scotch that is designed to be mixed ain't scotch.

8th January 2017

Seriously Bad

Taste bad with serious burn in the throat (same as stroh 80%), reminds me cheap vodka with Yuppi I used to have then I was kid .... for sweet memories of my childhood 1 star, otherwise would be 0.

30th December 2016

Mr Bailey

Poor quality whiskey - who designs a wiskey for mixers ? Perhaps a witty spin on a cheap process. Would the price be as is without Beckham ? This is a recipe for an unease scarily bad poisoning

26th December 2016

Smooth and sweet. Better than I'd have thought

Vanilla, coconut, toffee. All you need to know in terms of flavour. Agree the burn is quite bad afterwards, but its a smooth sip. I can see why its designed for mixers, but thats a travesty for whisky, even the cooking variety like this. Have to say I've tried peaty whisky at much higher pricepoints that tastes like listerine. For a smooth caramel and vanilla fix this is very good value.

21st December 2016

James Turner

A birthday gift from my daughter
The first I had heard of this very pleasant whisky.
Lots of taste and aroma
Will be enjoying more of if this
A winner

A Pleasant drink with a BAD wrap

I had recently bought this whiskey on offer from Asda (£15), after recently writing a paper on it for my final year critical brand positioning aspect of my Advertising course. The drink itself I found to be great, as a younger male with an eclectic palette when it comes to whiskeys, Haig Clubman was among one of the easiest drinks I have had for a while. Whilst I agree with those who say that neat it can be hard to drink, I do have to point out that the entire purpose of the Clubman extension of David Beckhams Haig Club, is to be a sweeter whiskey, aged in ex-bourbon casks, lending vanilla notes to compliment the sweet caramel flavours of COLA. It is marketed towards younger, social drinkers, with the intention of being consumed with sweet carbonated drinks like cola or ginger beer.

If you are a regular consumer of the now iconic whiskey-coke, or bourbon/ sour mash, I strongly recommend you give this a try. A unique addition to a younger drinkers whiskey shelf.

30th November 2016

Decent value at £15 but not worth rrp

Decent for the discounted £15 price. Had smokey vanilla notes with the smoke almost coming out my nostrils! Probably due to the slightly harsh spirit scent. Good for hot whiskey, with ginger ale but it's not a sipping whiskey for the connoisseur, even though I managed to sip my way through all 700ml of the stuff, neat, without too much protest! Don't pay full price, buy something better for the full price.

5th November 2016

Drumstick lollipops...

Thank god I got this on offer.. Even at £15 it's expensive. The nose for me is sweet sickly drumstick lollipops. Lots ov vanilla and a little toffee.. Won't be buying again.. Haig why bother putting this out it's not good..

27th October 2016

My first review

I needed to write this review in order to make sure that I save some whisky lovers money... Absolutely awful... Makes Grants and Famous Grouse an amazing choice

25th October 2016

Do I dislike anybody enough to assault them with this abomination?

Im glad I only paid £15 for this and not the ludicrous RRP of £26 for what is a mass-produced, young spirit.

Really difficult to pin down the specific taste, but I imagine it to be like Tesco Value Whisky mixed with an equally low-end bourbon, with a splash of water added.

I knew the moment I opened the bottle and started to pour that this was certain to be an abomination. The colour, the nose, just all wrong.

It just isnt right, the taste is a chemical-like vanilla, with a sickly sweet toffee finish that really does linger. The burn is awful, pretty much what you would expect from a cheap and nasty young spirit.

3-sips was enough for me to know that I actually REALLY do hate this stuff.

25th October 2016

Moose

Superb for a mixer drink. Not so much with water. I will have to buy some more.

24th October 2016

Davey

After a dabble with all types of whiskies over the years, especially expensive single malts, I saw the single grain Clubman, bought it on offer with a tenner off for fifteen pounds and drank it neat. It is too sharp for my taste, which I should have realised as it suggested on the label that it be drunk with cola or dry ginger.
Anybody want it before I sling it down the drain!

21st October 2016

Smokey

Lovely!

Smooth, sweet and light. A good introduction.

Alun Evans

Very "chemically", almost vodka like, not good at all.

9th October 2016

Mr Mc Kay
