Black & White Bottling Note

Black & White Blended Whisky is a classic old blend of some of the finest whiskies in Scotland, with a high proportion of quality grain whisky. None other than Dean Martin was said to be particularly fond of Black & White.

Creator James Buchanan apparently got the idea for the brand on his way home from a dog-show, and in the 1890s, The Scottie and Westie on the label were added, and became iconic symbols.

Finish: Short, with a slight sweetness of honey.

Black & White Blended Scotch Whisky Reviews

A generic drinkable whiskey for a generic whiskey drinker

N: Thin citrus.
P: Light mouthfeel gives way to rusty sour drops.
A: Remarkable amounts of wood spice, a continued light, not unpleasant, run of the mill Scotch finish.

Black and white whisky is great malt

I love the black and white whisky but it is hard to find to buy. I hope they continue making it

A very drinkable whiskey, albeit slightly bland.

Initial thoughts: A blended whiskey from James Buchanan sounds pretty good to me. No cork...not a good sign but not exactly a deal breaker. Pours a standard pale yellow/light gold color. Smells a bit muted to me at first, but I can pick up some light fruit (pear?), some malt, mild vanilla and some peat. Taste is pretty much the same, with more of the vanilla/peat coming through. Pour some water and the nose/taste is a little less sharp, less peaty and more fruit/vanilla. Overall I am impressed at the blend considering how overpowering the peat flavor often is in these sort of whiskeys. It tastes like you get a little bit of the profiles that Scotland has to offer, without any one of them dominating...nicely done. That being said, I personally enjoy when at least one of those flavors gets to shine through a little more, and so I found the experience a bit lackluster, although in no way offensive.

Looking forward to a taste

Well I’ve never tasted it but my dads old friend Reg from the old country always drank it with water. Would like to get a bottle in British Columbia Canada but cannot seem to find one.

I am extremely glad I bought this

I bought this on a whim. Something about the label reminded me of Hogmanays past or some such which. Anyway. the moment it hit my nose I was transported back in time. I assume my grandad or a beloved relative used to drink this when I was little. Closing my eyes and taking in the bouquet
I could almost smell the coal fire and the old "Palladin" lamp my grandparents had for power cuts.
The whisky itself is sweet, with a generous amount of a hidden gem: whether old grain or young single malt. This is very good stuff in a style that has fallen out of favour; think Whyte & Mackay but much much better, much less harsh, with a surprisingly long finish.
To our transatlantic and Southern visitors, I recommend this as a classic working man's blended whisky, from a time long gone.

Plays No Games

I'm like 'Excellent Bargain,' I bought a Handle of Black & White. I even read about what casks were used (refill,) and the preferred mixer (soda.) It has a sharpness on the nose, if you sniff too hard, from the Grain Whisky. But that's accompanied by a nuttiness. That nuttiness flows right through to the palate, along with the sharpness. It's really nice, and goes well with lime, in a Highball. I just happen to like it on the rocks, too.
Finish? It really ain't that kind of whiskey, but if you push me, I'll say 'medium.' This and J&B are the Rough Riders Team, for people who like uncompromising Scotches.

Excellent bargain

I'm drinking my first bottle right now as it just became available in my hometown in the U.S. Better than JW Red, and I can get a 1.75L at the same price point of a 750ml JW Black. I was most pleasantly surprised at the presence of smoke, especially in the finish. Great bargain and everyday blended Scotch.
