Lauder's Blend Bottling Note

This was first established in 1834, Lauder's Original is a very smooth blended whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite light and smooth. There are notes of mixed peels and cereals, a little caramel sweetness and a touch of dryness. The palate is of medium-body and reasonably well-balanced. There is caramel sweetness, a touch of oak and a wisp of smoke, a little nut note develops. The finish is of medium-length with developing oaked dryness.

Lauder's Blended Scotch Whisky Reviews

Bought in Copenhagen duty free as cheapest but pleasantly surprised


24th May 2020

just say no

ack !.....tastes like window wash... you've been warned.....

23rd April 2020

A very good blended

I like this very much. A well balanced good everyday blended. Smooth and easy going whisky with a character.

23rd January 2020

Good value.

Great whiskey for the price. Very pleasant surprise!

4th January 2020

Delicious on pallet for affordable price

Enjoyable whisky. I perfer Jack Daniel, and if you dislike the burn of bourbon, you will like this. Very smooth, similar to brandy. Personally, I drink spirits neat and Lauder's is suitable for neat.

6th October 2019

I enjoy

I bought this regularly from the whisky shop in the Green Welly shop at Tyndrum. An enjoyable blend at a suitable price. I would recommend it to any whisky drinker. The negative reviews are not from whisky drinkers but whisky snobs and to suggest it is only suitable as a mixer whisky is nonsense. The only thing whisky should be mixed with is spring water. I have bought and drunk cask strength whisky, Edradour was an experience, and a small amount of water added did bring out the flavours but to suggest Cola as a mixer, keep it for Vodka.

3rd October 2019

Good tasting for the price

I have a friend that bought me a bottle and I mix it with a little water. Not bad tasting scotch for the price. Years ago I would drink a little Chivas Regal scotch but there is a big price difference. This taste good enough for me to drink for the price.

28th April 2019

Surprisingly good...

I’m not much of a whisky drinker, but my daughter-in-law’s father recently gave me a bottle (bought from Copenhagen duty free I think), and it’s one of the best budget blended whiskies I’ve tasted.

16th April 2019

A good whisky at a good price.

My goodness there are some whisky snobs about. I started drinking Lauders a couple of years ago after passing through Copenhagen airport and picking a bottle up. I can say that I’ve never been disappointed and I’ve drunk some different brands over the years. Luckily for me my family regularly pass through CPH airport and get me a bottle. Remember the best whisky is the one that you enjoy and for me it’s Lauders.

24th February 2019

Ask for famous

This whisky is not suitable for drinking pure. It begs for coca cola to be mixed up.

28th January 2019

Surprised - price vs performance...

Bought it at Kyrgyzstan Duty Free for a mere 5€ or something. Was not expecting much but when opened the bottle it surprised me immensely with a price-performance perspective. Can not get better for such a cost. Cheers...

11th January 2019

Outstanding value

I use this for Scotch and soda. A steal at 1/3 the price of JW Red, and has very similar taste/profile.

19th October 2018

Buy it for mixers. Save big bucks

For the price, hard to beat. I primarily use this for Scotch and soda, at less than half the price of JW Red.

16th October 2018

Good for a blended whisky - I recommend

Surprisingly good. I bought it at Copenhagen airport because (a) it was on special offer, (b) I had never heard of it but had heard of Harry Lauder the music hall singer (Laughing Policeman etc) and wondered if it was the same family. Much nicer than other standard blends (Johnny Walker and similar horrors) and seems to have a fair amount of malt in it.

1st July 2018

Will E.

I like it it’s good. I like all kinds of scotch and bourbon

17th February 2018

Well worth the price.

I found one bottle in a tiny shop in Hong Kong ln 2016, while looking for jack Daniels the best alternative I have ever drunk. Keith murray. North wales.

7th February 2018

Good value comparable to more expensive whiskys

An excellent scotch whisky good price pleasentley surprised as I am a whisky drinker and hadn’t tasted it before will certainly buy it again

12th January 2018

Good enough with coke

Not good, but still whisky. Good enough with coke. You know... coke is for drinks as garlic is for food, ha-ha... Harsh, burnt bitterness and attacking alcohol, but also some smooth tones with vanilla and caramel.

Got it for very a very low price on a charter plane on my way to Gran Canaria. Relaxation for a fair amount when the price was dumped many percent.

30th December 2017

The best

A beautiful blend of whisky nice and mild just the right taste I recommend it to anyone

11th December 2017


Now drinking that

20th October 2017

It just is ;)

The best breakfast Scotch ;)

2nd October 2017



9th May 2017

it's the only scotch i buy

best scotch in it's price range

10th April 2017

lovely bozze in town

this is smooth, mild scotch. also it tastes good. i took it straight.
i may say, it is the best for money and still lovely for pairing it with some meat, cheese, pasta, and some chocolate (my sister did this :-lol).
now lauder's is part of my rotation, together with my pipes.

28th January 2017

Lauders Fortune recipe.

When I'm in the mood for a mixed drink I turn to my Lauders Scotch Whisky as it mixes well with anything. This recipe is a take off of the famous "Boiler Maker", it is a medium to heavy bodied cocktail that is malty, semi sweet and slightly smoky. Mix 12 ounces of Millers Fortune Beer and 2 ounces of lauders Scotch Whiskey. This drink can easily be shared with a friend, it is highly alcoholic but absolutely delicious. Be careful not to overdo the whisky, the sweetness can become cloying and detrimental to the flavor of the cocktail. Enjoy!

8th December 2016

One of the best cheap whiskys

Very aromatic (a rarity for it's price range),. Smooth with a light kick in the throat.
Balanced but perhaps too low-key. Biased to a smoky caramel flavour.
It is the combination of the smell during the sip that brings brings me back to this bottle.
Definitely one to keep in the closet for the right mood.

9th November 2016

Reg walls

Bought it in duty free in Pula airport Croatia . Never had it before , superb

6th October 2016


Like Lauders, the absolute best for the money. Don't mind sipping in the evening. Not high dollar, but a good scotch anyway!

25th June 2016

Marine engineer

The best whisky I ever tasted.
The missing link Between whisky and cognac?

15th April 2016

Good Budget Scotch

Look, most people can't afford good scotch every night. This is a good, drinkable Scotch that is perfect when you're not devoting all your senses to the act of tasting good scotch. When your senses are already dulled with a movie, good book, or some pretzels, it's perfectly fine. Yes, there are much finer Scotches out there, but this is a good staple to have around when you just want a quick drink without all the fanfare.

3rd April 2016

This is Whisky?

Nose: Cheap Tequila, OFF (the mosquito repellent spray), hints of licorice

Pallet: Okay Tequila, creamy, toffee, strong oak flavor

Finish: long but light, sweet, butterscotch, caramel, dry

I know this review seemed a little sarcastic but it is my honest impression. I understand it's not a top shelf single malt like I'm used to. I'm not comparing it to them or it would have negative stars. To me, it really does taste and smell like Tequila. It tastes a bit better than it smells though. a little rough as it's only 3 years old. If you're on a budget i get it. But if you think this represents scotch in any kind of way. You've never had scotch. Get this if you are having a few friends over and are planning on mixing it (I recommend cream soda).

It's possible to drink it neat but not very enjoyable. Also, I have absolutely NO idea where people are saying they find Peat. Maybe because I'm partial to Laphroiag and Ardbeg my pallet is desensitized to smoke but I find zero of it here.

Save up the extra cash and at least get Glenfiddich 12 or something. similar but significantly better on every single level

26th March 2016

Good probucts

Verry nice whisky smoos helsy and verry good price taket freez

19th March 2016


Pretty good at the price, not comparing with single malt, that would be stupid, like comparing apples with oranges! Keep going Lauders, i probably buy 10 every month, and i enjoy it with friends, a cardgame and with ice. On the rocks is my choice.

23rd February 2016

Great blend

We just had a blind tasting contest with Lauders and Dewars White Label. Lauders won 100% and it is half the price.

23rd February 2016

The miller light of scotch

Regardless of the snobbery proclamations regarding your product I find it affordable, digestible and flavorful.
I will say that while they're more tasteful scotches sans ice and water, single malted in particular, your offering suits me to the 't'.
I only get those aforementioned at my b-day and or father's day occasions.
Keep on keeping on!

12th February 2016


Avoid at any cost. I will stick with single malts!

20th January 2016


The absolute BEST for the money. Scotch drinkers visiting me cant believe how smooth and nice this stuff is and a bargain to boot!

30th December 2015


Great whisky with great taste

12th December 2015


A cut above other similar-priced whiskies.

5th December 2015

Very good

This is a great cheap scotch. I've drank a lot of it. Unfortunately I can't find it where I am living now in Kentucky. One of my favorites, second only to Wild Turkey (in my opinion)

12th November 2015

Big Scotch imbiber

Best cheapest shit on the market. Keep an empty bottle of the high priced stuff around and fill it with Lauder's and ur drinking buddies will NEVER know the difference.

27th October 2015

The first time this whiskey passed my lips.......

To drink this Whiskey is to understand the art of the smooth the refined and the understood. For a small price this whiskey has all the traits of the high and mighty whiskeys. It is velvet to the tongue and the throat and only moderately warming on the stomach but with an effect that lingers and lingers. Well done Lauders. Thank you

3rd September 2015

Lauders blended scotch

Very impressive for the money!

24th August 2015

Another cheap one but not bad.

After recently getting a hole collection of cheaper blends and malts for fun besides my more expensive collection I realized alot of these are really damn good. Last time it was High Commissioner that chocked me with a plecent taste and now this one.

The fine smoak/oak hints are just perfect and the honey/nut mid is also nice, but it does fade a little faster than I had hoped for. But non the less a nice bottle for a low price with a good mix of tastes.

Head : Light and smooth,with a touch of honey and straw.

Taste : Starts with some citrus mixed with a fair amount of vanilla that goes together quite nice. Then comes some oak/smoke mid and fills up pretty good, followed by a few notes of honey(fresh straw and as a final you notice a few hints of smooth malt.

With a few drops of water the tastes comes forth even more and shadows over the sharp sting many find numbening.

After all is said this bottle offers a lot for a low price. Will buy again.

Avoid avoid avoid. Life is too short for whisky this dire.

10th June 2015

Best find

Having moved from UK to Malaysia it's been difficult to source a reasonable good whisky! Thank goodness for Lauders, though the shops do run out very fast leaving weeks of searching ahead. Please importers get a grip and order more. I love thi stuff.

30th May 2015

Best in Class

We made a comparable tasting with 5 other well know blends and LAuders Finest sttod out as smooth, slightly sweeter and easier to drink.

28th May 2015

Yes, i got what i paid for, and i az satisfied.

In this price range Lauder's is an excellent choice.

28th April 2015

Wonderful Flavors, Smooth Ambience

I find the blend a favorite beverage before bed. Is's mellow flavors and smooth consumption make it an enjoyable and heartwarming beverage known for its comfort in my household.

18th April 2015


I Agree with "avoid", its "dreadful stuff ". even straigt-up . I think taste like soapy water. now back to the more expensive blends and single malts.

4th April 2015

Fits my pocket

Not to everyone's taste but certainly to mine! Cheers!

10th March 2015

Smoothest of all the whisky i had tasted


10th January 2015

Good one

Since I'm not drinker myself, this whiskey is amazing for the evening short glass. I really love it, whatsoever, I'm not a whiskey expert so not sure how others will like it. For me its very easy to drink and its not too hard.

29th December 2014


muy bueno lo tomo hace mas de 30 años

24th December 2014


nice drink.....similar to canadian whisky

15th December 2014


Couldn't disagree more with previous reviews. This is truly dreadful stuff but then you get what you pay for I suppose. Not sure what award they were giving out in 1893 for this to win. If you know your whisky don't waste your money.

20th October 2014


not bad at all.

17th May 2014


as a NASA rocket scientist, I must say it tastes better than rocket fuel. its sweet, not much finish but a darn great scotch for the money! I wouldnt take it to Mars if given an option over 20 yr Macallan, but then again I ain't going to MArs anytime soon. LAuders it is!!!

My yacht's crew

I always have a bottle of this on my yacht. I really like the smoothness in the palate, hot, sherry nose with a bit of smoke and a tasty finish. Only a blend but it deserves 8/10.
