Haig Club Bottling Note

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.

Haig Club Reviews

Mouth wash

Despite the negative reviews I decided to approach this 'whisky' with an open mind. However, I am forced to concur that it is 100% horrible.

New to whisky then try it......

If your new to whisky and want something easy to drink then it’s ok. Tastes like they took a really good whisky that’s been watered down too much. Such a shame.

Poured it down the drain

Tasted like soap. I genuinely poured it down the drain.

Nicer than the other comments make out

I think this is probably a marmite whisky. You'll either love it or hate it. For me it was a re-introduction into whisky. There are definitely hints of butterscotch and banana as the tasting notes state and it's quite a smooth drink.

It doesn't compare with my Laphroaig's and Bunnahabhain's but it's still a nice change every now and then.

An unfortunate example of why celebrity endorsement is often very superficial

Probably the worst whisky I have ever tasted. Worst than that unknown blend that they sell at the newsagents. Bottle is the best bit!

Avoid.

Horrific. Purchased due to being massively discounted in supermarket sale. I now know why. I literally can’t drink this stuff! Tastes of pure ethanol.
Avoid.

The easy one what's not to like.

Nice and easy to drink even my friends who do like whiskey found this OK so what's not to like they also thought the blue bottle was cool.

Do not purchase - waste of money!

Dreadful tat, should not have the label whiskey attached to it! Celebrity over quality.

Disgusting, headache inducing

Disgusting. Headache inducing. No wonder Beckham famously wasn't shown drinking this rubbish in the ads. It's an embarrassment of a drink.
