High Commissioner Bottling Note

High Commissioner is a blend of various malt and grain whiskies. It's actually not that bad, with a pretty decent balance of flavour.

I like it

Sir Nigel

Given a bottle of this whisky for my birthday. Took one sip and poured the rest down the sink.
I would rather drink cleaning fluid.

16th April 2016

Surprised? Yeah!!

I bought this because it was quite cheap and Whyte & MacKay gives me heartburn. Tried it neat to compare (with lots of other whiskies I've tried) and it was beautiful. It may end up being my regular tipple.

High Commissioner blended

Starts off with a nice blended whisky taste but what on earth is that aftertaste all about? Reminds me of the smell of freshly sprayed dogs urine!
I certainly don't recommend :(

13th January 2016

Its cheap

28th December 2015

For the price, actually quite decent.

This is my go to scoth when I'm semi broke. For a very attractive price tag this is pretty decent stuff. I've had MUCH worse for much more money than this. VERY decent whisky!

26th December 2015


wonderfull smooth blended scotch,cannot believe the price,pity morrisons stopped stocking it at £15.99 a ltr it was a bargain.its
stopped them selling thier own stupid plastic bottle of petrol.
comment further down by steesh must be his ist taste of whisky or he works for another distillery or he has not got a won't find a smoother whisky.

Nothing special

Taste dominated by grain spirits. Ok for the price but nothing special.

16th August 2015


A surprisingly smooth blend, and without doubt, a better buy than the likes of Tesco's harsh blend...a real no brainer...

24th July 2015

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Got a taste in the local shop here in Sweden and was really surprised when they told me the price after. Expected it to be a more expensive bottle.

Ended up buying a whole crate of ten bottles for long storage. Perfect whiskey for those days when you want a drink but don't wanna bring out the finer bottles.

The new bottle looks great... but it is too tall to fit in the cupboard!!! Will have to look at supermarket alternative, which is a shame, as we enjoy high commissioner.x

21st June 2015


Superb value for money, love the new bottle shape, looks a lot more expensive than it is. Great product I have used for a few years now.

Rev Denis Dinneen

I got a present of High Commissioner and when I went ot give people a drink over the weekend I found out that there was no screw cap attached to the bottle just the seat and a paper disc needless to say it had ruined a good bottle of whisky and I had to throw it out as it was terrible and could not be consumed. So it broke my heart to have to give my cherished Hennesy Cognac instead.

9th March 2015


This blend is outstanding. I was very sorry that morrisons has decided to discontinue this line.Will just have find somewhere else to shop.I'll miss you Morrisons.

31st January 2015

For the price - a winner!

Saw this for the first (and perhaps last) time while traveling in Burma. Price was $1.50 (US) a pint. Wasn't the smoothest, but felt absolutely fantastic in the morning. Looking forward to running in to "the commissioner" again.

24th January 2015


Bought this to keep the natives happy and the more expensive single malts under lock and Key , surprisingly this whisky was very pleasant to the point of opening the malts and having a tasting session

25th November 2014

5 Stars whisky

I used to drink this every day when I was 17'ish, on the beach, with some coke gently served on Pepsi carton pints, shared with friends and endless nights of summer. Just for the bond i got to it I give him 5 stars.

3rd October 2014


On a Cruise recently we called at Gibralter on the way back to Southampton.The first shop we came to on the way to the centre was selling High Commissioner Whisky for £4.50 a litre.Had to buy a bottle at this price.It's great value and tastes good.

21st August 2014

decent and affordable

this whisky benefits from a few drops of water,smooths out the wrinkles,takes on a "Teacher's" quality.Certainly not the worst bottle you'll ever have.£17 per litre,who's complaining?

5th June 2014

Alan Hirst

Changed my opinion now.This is the one i want and look to drink always.

26th January 2014

Good, honest Scotch

For the money this has to be a bargain. Not the most subtle of whiskies but does not disappoint.

17th January 2014

Great Value

I had to give it 4 stars for the quality for the price. Its very pleasant and smooth to drink. It is better than many costing more. Its worth a try for the money. I saw it today in Iceland would you believe for £13. Johnny Norfolk.

6th December 2013

Surprisingly good, given the price

From time to time I drink blended whiskies (basically if I can't be bothered to go to the more distant shop to get Macallan) and I thought this was really pretty good. It doesn't have the sort of nasty twang after taste of Famous Grouse, not that weird immediate taste of Bells, and the 70cl I bought was only £13. Perfectly reasonably to drink straight.

16th November 2013

good ane

First time that i bought and its really nice

13th October 2013

on offer

Morrisons is 15.99 a litre tgink al try it

Gift PS

Sorry, missed off the rating!

15th September 2013


I was given an almost full litre bottle of this recently as the person that purchased it didn't like it,.
I was expecting it to be a rough, burning type Scotch, but have to say it beats most of the well known blends hands down.
Ok, it's no single malt, but I will definitely buy some when this bottle runs out, which will be sooner rather than later!

15th September 2013

Dougie Parton

A richt gweed tipple.Nae bad ata fan ye consider how chep it iz.Aye,well worth the coppers

27th August 2013


wouldn't clean an engine with this vile beverage. Remove it from the market quickly before someone becomes realy ill

27th August 2013

Mr Bob Webster

A really good smooth whiskey with a pleasant aftertaste. Remarkable for the price. My first choice every time. I only wished that more pubs would stock it.

13th June 2013

Big Dawg

Not bad at all. Smooth. Clear defined taste. Definitely better than some other blends I had tried.

12th May 2013

Minimum Pricing

This one will go under if minimum pricing becomes us a favor!!!!

3rd May 2013

Mr Alan Hirst.

A Surprisingly nice whisky at the price.

1st November 2012

Not worth waiting for!!!

This is the most worthless whiskey I ever tasted.

22nd October 2012

great value

has a distinct rawness that I find more enjoyable than a smooth whisky.

13th September 2012

safed our holidays

18th March 2012

27th October 2011
