White Horse Bottling Note

A good blend which was first produced in 1861, White Horse was the Blended Whisky of the Year in Jim Murray's 2007 Whisky Bible.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Good balance and complexity with hints of oak, smoke and toffee. There's a good fruity note, with plenty of malt.

Palate: Really malty and quite sweet with honey, fruit and toffee. Supple and sumptuous.

Finish: The finish is long and quite complex with notes of oak, peppy spices, and creamy vanilla.

White Horse Reviews

Economy whisky

Decent, albeit a little harsh, economy whisky. Nice blend of vanilla and smoke.

Bilge water

Not even close to pre war or the 50s 60s bottlings l could tell you more but l don’t want to increase demand on already hard to find bottles , nudge nudge wink wink!

Still holds its own. Rating as factor of cost.

The bottle I'm reviewing was stamped 2017/2/24. I cannot remember tasting an older bottle. It is sweet, smooth and pleasantly oily, but there is also a touch of bitterness at the very end which might nit have been present some years ago. This dissipates somewhat and most crucially, the sweetness hangs on in there, with a surprisingly long finish. For the price it can't really be faulted.

Superb for an everyday blend. Easy on the palate & smoooth!

My favorite single malts are Macallan 12 & Dalwhinnie 15. However, I can't afford those as everyday whiskeys, so White Horse is perfect for my palate everyday. I have several dozen single malts in my collection, but overall I prefer White Horse to most single malts other than the aforementioned two. I suppose White Horse is similar to politics ... you either love it or you hate it. Most of the men in my family (and my 5 sons) are usually pleasantly surprised with the taste. Highly recommended, but difficult to find in a bar/pub. Easily found in U.S. liquor stores, though. I consider the more common blends (Johnnie Walker red & black, Dewar's, Chivas, Pinch, etc.) as mouthwash. I'll drink those if nothing else is available other than water, but White Horse by choice. Neat, of course!

Good whisky

This is fucking good whisky better than Glenmorangie for me

11th January 2019

Where's the Lagavulin?

I agree with the previous review. I drank White Horse for years, then noticed that it didn't taste so good anymore, then noticed that Lagavulin was no longer mentioned on the label. I've been searching for an affordable, slightly smoky, and not-too-sweet Scotch and have settled on Teacher's for now.

29th December 2018

It used to be good

A couple of years ago this was was my favourite whiskey, but in about 2016 I noticed that along with the bottle design change, the mention of Lagavulin had been removed from the label... although its retained it's smooth quality, any trace of peat that I experienced even five years ago has vanished.

6th October 2018

Best for price

Best whisky for the price. Good for blending with aged blends/single malts.

14th July 2018


love it

21st January 2018

Awesome with good price

Bought a bottle to try today and its almost finish
Try it with ice

Poor mans Islay

This takes me back to my youth, and was one of my favourites back in the 80s amongst the other high street blends such as Teachers, Famous Grouse, Haig etc. Islay malts are my staple favourites, and white horse uses Lagavulin as its base, and you can tell. Those reviewers who claim Teachers is more smoky must be smoking something to taste that.

29th June 2017


I highly recommend White Horse at only $36 for 1.75 liters. Better than Johnnie Red and almost as good as Johnnie Black. Very smooth and an amazing bargain. Thanks, Sam

11th December 2016

the best for the price !!!!

its a talisker in a smooth way i love it:_)

27th June 2016

Inexpensive but not cheap.

White Horse will not please drinkers that are fond of the aroma found in the inside of wood stoves. However, for drinkers that enjoy a scotch they can taste the sea in while keeping faith with a traditional Scottish value, thriftiness, White Horse is simply not beatable.

6th February 2016

Not good

This is a bellow average whisky, I am a smoke, peaty guy so I tried this because it was supposed to have peated malts inside ( from what I Read even about Lagavulin!! ) I can't see any kind of decent whiskey inside, an unpleasant blend, Teachers and black Grouse (more expensive though) are a lot better, even ordinary famous Grouse is a nice whiskey for my taste.. If you search for a cheap smoked whiskey Alternative Teachers is a lot better..

Excellent whisky

Compared to all highly priced stuff i would like to mark it

19th January 2016

Smooth & Economical.

Bought a bottle this morning after work for 15 USD in order to try it. Found it smooth, with just the right bite. Felt no burn and it tastes great over ice. This will become a regular.

Great whisky for the price!

A Daily Taste

My favorite for a daily taste the price is right and it has just the right bite; enjoy

3rd October 2015

Good for a cheap high scool party...

...and bad for your collection. Poorly blended, seems to be whisky-tasted vodka.

18th July 2015


It means You never try whisky if You will give even 1 star for it!!!

29th April 2015

one word


23rd March 2015

great for the money

The best scotch in its price range. Better then most that cost double.

15th February 2015

Sorry I just found this

it's a solid dram and well worth the cost. A great every day drink. Try it as you can't go wrong

15th February 2015

Perfect malty blend!

Excellent malty nose and palate ending in a long spicy finish. Just perfect!

14th January 2015

Best cheap blend

I'm buying this in 1.75 liter bottles in the US and I absolutely love it. Unlike most blends in this price category, this one goes well for me over ice or even neat. Of course, also great for mixing with coke or juice.

27th December 2014

Good, in its bracket

Paid AED50 for 1L in a well known grog shop in UAE, that's around $14, can drink JWB for AED 120 but on a cost-value-befit basis, its pretty good stuff. Aside from price, perfectly drinkable blend for throwing back

22nd December 2014


This is not a good blend. Don't waste your money! buy jw black, teachers, naked grouse or ballantines.

20th December 2014


Cheaper than Dewars, but really good. Underrated

14th November 2014


22.62€?! In Croatia is around 8-9€ per bottle! Crazy!

4th November 2014

Riding the White Horse

Love this blend. Can get it for under $30 USD and you can't beat it. Prefer it over Johnnie Red.

11th October 2014

Great at the price

I think this puts others Scotch in the price range to shame.

11th June 2014


I can imagine americans who don't even know what the peat is don't like this. I think this above average blend. Not great, but a good one.

30th December 2013


Hey there! As whisky is made with barley, water and yeast, there shouldn't be anything that doesn't class it as vegan! However, maturation in sherry butts can render it non-vegan. The sources I can find online say that White Horse is vegan, but I cannot guarantee that this is still true, I'm afraid! Your best bet would be to get in touch with the distillery directly. Apologies for not being more helpful! --The Chaps at Master of Malt

25th November 2013


Can you tell me if White Horse Blended Scotch is vegan?

Karoo Favourite

White Horse is a preferred drink for me, family and friends. 99% of the time we choose to drink White Horse because of its unique taste and aroma. Compliments to Lagavulen Distillery, keep up the good work guys. Cheers- four fingers!!!!

10th June 2013


well, some of the reviews seem to praise this one - maybe it's just my faulty palate, but drinking this bottle was like smoking a cheap cigar. It's not bad on the first sip, I agree with the review below that states the same, but I'm afraid we enede up drinking up the bottle just so it doesn't go to waste. The taste of the first sip degrades into unpleasant "cheap booze" taste soon..

Had heard decent things about White Horse before trying it, but found it to be horribly awful.
To me, it just tasted like perfumed spirit, and left an uncomfortable burn in my throat.
No pleasant tastes whatsoever, just nasty like cheap alcohol.

It could be that I got a (very) bad bottling - I'll probably never know because I doubt I'll ever taste White Horse again.
I'll ask my mate for a second opinon, but if he doesn't like it, it's going down the sink.

8th April 2013

Nice blend

A solid blend. Fairly sweet, almost syrupy, with just a nice hint of smoke. It lacks complexity, but it's good value nonetheless.

25th February 2013


ASlinda fena değil ama çok pahal,i türkiyeye gelene kadar baya para giriyo kib bye

31st December 2012

Nice blend for the money

Good Scotch for a night by the fire. Compared to Vat 69 it is a little more complex and has a stronger finish.

29th December 2012

Top blend's !!!!

The Lagavulin of poor men!!
One blend legend together with Teacher's!
both have more than 40% Malt !!

15th September 2012

Starts of great, then goes south.

Wonderful on the first sip. Smokey and savory. Quickly devolves into a syrupy and oily dram with flavors of cheap cooking oil and cured meats. Gross I know. Halfway through the bottle I was bummed because I don't waste and knew I would have to get through the stuff. It really set me up to be let down because it started off beautifully.

nai dobriq

nai dobroto smes whisky na sveta

25th June 2012

the"best" blended i've ever tasted!

i do not know all of the particulars of blending whisky but i know what i like. i visited the white horse distillery in october, 1981 and to date this is the "best" industrial tour ever. their whisky is of the gods.

8th June 2012

pablo adipas

well what can isay about that?first of all fantastic bottle and really rich taste!If you are looking for something special white horse is the name of the game.Cheers!

1st February 2012


This can be aptly described as a solid old world blend. Robust, right amount of peatiness (someone informed that at the heart of this blend was Lagavulin), rich in taste and aroma. An old favourite (have seen the bottle as a toddler!), but unfortunately, don't seem to find it either in the local market in India nor at the duty free shops. Scores over many expensive blends and malts; truly a characteristic whisky.
