The most pleasant and inexpensive Scotch whisky I have tasted. Aged in Spanish sherry oak barrels I believe. Was sold in several main UK stores but now disappeared from the shelves. Seems to have been replaced by cheap and tasteless Scotch whiskies said to have been matured in American oak casks. Beware!

I have always been a famous grouse man for years until recently I've found it's stopped doing its job , switched to commissioner for some variety and I think I'll be sticking with it. It's in no way harsh but leaves that lovely warm feeling right through to my bones which we all love :) very impressed with this excellent nip , cheers

I by no means am a scotch whisky connoisseur, but I've had my share (I'm only 23 mind) my collection boasts bottles of all your swill up to a few £50 - £60 and even a bottle of blue label... But this is really a good whisky, even when I don't regard price. Its crazy but it easily outdoes a lot of your more expensive and reputable bottles (but so is the world of scotch)

Good strong unusual zesty flavour. Very reasonable price. Can be taken neat to savour or for a long drink good with a dry ginger or diet coke. A whisky l hope we will see (and taste) more of.

It's value for money. No doubt. Has vanilla notes, and a spicy fragrance. Hints of caramel, and oak scent is evident. Soft on the palate and not harsh. A good whiskey. Had it with ginger ale and crushed ice. Delicious.

Recently I discovered this highly underrated whisky. What a bargain compared to many others,which to my mind are inferior. Very smooth to the palate. Good all round quality for an execllent and inexpensive whisky.

Smooth , well balanced and not too hard in the morning. And the best part is good value for money. Cheaper than the ones which are horrible and harsh on the palate.

The only current scotch that I matched to the taste of High Comm for the price is that supplied by Tesco stores ie. Tesco Special Reserve. Had hopes that the present cheap relabelled Famous Grouse would live up to the original quality - this is not so in my view - I find it tasteless. Are we in a market battle of the scotch suppliers?. I will have to give the Lidl Margot brand a try now - I enjoyed it in the past!
5th November 2016
Best cheap scotch that was available. Now off local markets and replaced with cheap relabelled rubbish which I doubt has seen an oak bin. Now back to my old favourite Whyte & MacKay which shows a 3 year oak bin age. Is the online High Comm any good?
This is the only whiskey my local 24-hour garage sells, it's also what my local pub sells you if you ask for the cheapest alcohol they have,and it's also the bottle you're most likely to see poking out from under a sleeping bag in the town centre. It's basically one step up from Meths.And yet, it's really not a bad whiskey. It's a bit harsh, but it's flavourful and, if you've already had half a dozen decent scotches, you're unlikely to really notice that it isn't as good.

We bought a box of 12 bottles for my grandfatherş 100 birthday and tell you what i was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of this cheap blended scotch,smooth and rather sweet,however the finish was of a poor quality but you can't expect much for what is a simple scotch,but certainly i would buy another bottle easily drinkable with a simple drop of water..
4th October 2016
As normally i would drink single malt, i find this whisky a pleasant change for a blend whisky , plus an acceptable price . Well done :)

An average whisky that has an odd aftertaste. Reminds me of ASDA's own brand MCKendricks. Bought on a whim and will buy again as a cheap mixing whisky.
18th July 2016
I've been drinking this for years! I have about 40 top end single malts in my collection, so I use high commissioner for a mixing whiskey. Goes amazing with 7up, tonic, even fruitier sodas and Redbull. For the price you can't go wrong.

For a blend it is very good.I hope the production of this item continues.
19th May 2016
I like it
28th April 2016
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
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.
20th March 2016
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 :(

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.itsstopped 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 clue.you won't find a smoother whisky.
28th October 2015
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
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.
22nd July 2015
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.
27th March 2015
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
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
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
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
Changed my opinion now.This is the one i want and look to drink always.
26th January 2014
For the money this has to be a bargain. Not the most subtle of whiskies but does not disappoint.
17th January 2014
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
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
First time that i bought and its really nice
13th October 2013
Morrisons is 15.99 a litre tgink al try it
4th October 2013
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!
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
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
Not bad at all. Smooth. Clear defined taste. Definitely better than some other blends I had tried.
12th May 2013
This one will go under if minimum pricing becomes law.....do us a favor!!!!
3rd May 2013
A Surprisingly nice whisky at the price.
1st November 2012
This is the most worthless whiskey I ever tasted.
22nd October 2012
has a distinct rawness that I find more enjoyable than a smooth whisky.
13th September 2012
been recently to myanmar and cambodia. hc was the only good drink we could find. the price is very reasonable, the taste is brilliant.
18th March 2012
More class than it's price and awful label suggest. One of the better budget blends.
27th October 2011
Smooth taste, and nice effects. Will be the right choice.It's worth it. real Whisky taste
