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.

best scotch in it's price range
10th April 2017
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.

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!

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.

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

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

The best whisky I ever tasted.The missing link Between whisky and cognac?
15th April 2016
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.

Nose: Cheap Tequila, OFF (the mosquito repellent spray), hints of licoricePallet: Okay Tequila, creamy, toffee, strong oak flavorFinish: long but light, sweet, butterscotch, caramel, dryI 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

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

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
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
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
In this price range Lauder's is an excellent choice.
28th April 2015
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
Not to everyone's taste but certainly to mine! Cheers!

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!!!
16th April 2014
What a fantastic smooth Whisky,my favourite i've got to give it 9/10 for taste and Quality.

We are 4 guys card players from Bulgaria. Since we met Lauder`s (1 year now) our performance got better. Keep getting us drunk Mr. Lauder, let Mr. Johny just walk his path.

I like it. Light touch of charm, deep roots of culture...Thank you, Lauder's!
23rd July 2011
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.
