High Commissioner 35cl
A High Commissioner is a diplomatic representative of the Imperial Government, who is assigned protectorates to watch over. This blended Scotch whisky was first sold in 1865 and, whilst not a complex dram, is not a bad blend, with a good malty flavour.
A nice drop without snobbery
I am disappointed to read negative reviews on this product.
Yes, to some it may not be the finest single malt that the world has to offer; nor does it state to. A taste of "Urine" is questionable. Should a Doctor be drinking thier own... or others urine to make comparison ? a questionable Doctor perhaps?
High Commissioner has a smooth and subtle taste that other blended whiskies on the standard shelf do not currently offer.
I would recommend High Commissioner (and have), to others that would like to enjoy Whisky without the burn of single malts or heavily blended malts that sometimes put new comers off.
As an executive chef I say High Commissioner is up there with the other high street brands, however offers something different, a smooth and positive way into the world of whisky.
My opinion and my opinion alone;
try before condemned.

Turns me into a total B*stard, blended does this to me most of the time, but with this mouthwash that is lossely related to Whisky I finally turned into a cross between "8 Ace" and "The Brown Bottle"

This is not for whisky snobs but it is a very acceptable blend from a first-class blender.
