Haig Club

The much anticipated David Beckham endorsed single grain whisky, produced at Cameronbridge distillery. A combination of first-fill, rejuvenated and refill bourbon barrel-matured whiskies are used and Beckham, along with Simon Fuller, is very much involved in the development of the Haig Club brand.

The Haig dynasty meanwhile is the stuff of legend, with Robert Haig getting himself into trouble for distilling on the sabbath back in 1655! Cameronbridge was founded by John Haig in 1824, and a continuous still designed by Robert Stein (who was John's uncle) was soon installed at the site for the production of grain whisky, predating Aeneas Coffey's famous patent for his own version of the continuous still by a handful of years.

The grain whisky produced at Cameronbridge would naturally become integral to the well-loved Haig blended whiskies and now the Haig brand has been reinvented for a new generation and new markets. It may seem like a scary new world to some, but grain whisky is on the march, and Haig Club is at the very forefront.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose It doesn't jump out at you, granted, but there's more here than meets the eye (/nose). Apple crumble, expressed lemon peel and a touch of mango. Millionaire's shortbread, banoffee pie, coconut milk, dried grass, orange Turkish delight and cardamom.

Palate Toffee and vanilla with pleasant supporting oak notes. Fresh banana (neither overpowering nor artificial), a hint of nougat and honeycomb pieces.

Finish Praline, cinnamon and a little ginger with perhaps a hint of cardamom returning right at the death.

Overall Approachable, adaptable, good mouthfeel (I chucked some ice in afterwards and the texture was great). A hugely accessible whisky with tasty spice, toffee and, with the ice now, increasingly some tropical fruit notes too.

Tastes bad, exactly like a petrol with hint of citrus. What were they thinking?

Had a try of this, just to see what Mr Beckham endorsed.
Didn’t taste like whisky at all. Hard to place the taste, but paint stripper sprung to mind. Yeuch!

I tried this and oh my it is nasty stuff, probably only for mixing, however there are much cheaper blends that taste better than this!

Just keep the bottle, pour the content away and replace it with Listerine for bathroom display

Acht ..it was worth a try....not!
Absolutely chemical filled spirit masquerading as a decent dram in a fancy bottle. Just don't. It's awful. 17 quid waisted. Maybe I'm for cleaning the toilet.

Not great.
Absense of any appreciable taste and smells like nail varnish remover as someone else reviewed. On the verge of a mixer only drink, with the marketing budget to scrub search results/replace them with articles about how amazing it is.

Always look for that distinctive blue bottle.
Always was a great whisky. Love the smooth taste. Great with short bread biscuit or a chocolate or two. Just a great taste.

Whisky for mixing
This is not a single malt or a blended and tastes like it. Drink it with a mixer and you’re fine as the advert on TV says. The bottle is the best bit
