Some Lessons are Hard to Learn
Unfortunately whn is come to learning what a bad whisky 'is' this lesson is not just hard but tastes bad going down. Seriously, why waste your money just buy a 'real' whisky like Glenlivet. It is not great but about the same price and actually tastes like whisky.
For a better description of the whisky see the review titled 'A caramel swamped horror.' It is about 15 reviews down. Not the one with all the ???????????? he's an idiot!

From the middle of Southern Africa
Very pleasantly surprised!
Price is reasonable for blended whiskey. More of a brandy guy myself but this is not bad. You still can't taste all the stuff they want you to taste at the distillery but its better than all the other blended stuff on the shelves. Mixes well with sodas which is a plus in my book. Chances that you will disappointed are low. This is MY PERSONAL OPINION!

I drink single malts at home, but often take a bottle of blended whisky with me when I am working away from home. I bought this out of curiosity, and was very pleasantly surprised. This whisky will be my companion on trips away from now on. Five stars (Six if you take the price into account.)

Judged by the reviews on this site, this whisky is very overrated!
The best Whisky I have ever tasted!
23rd August 2014
I was looking for a cheap whisky to take to Glastonbury and following the reviews on this site I was encouraged to buy Scottish Leader. Now maybe I just bought a bad bottle, and I'd add that although I'm a big whisky/ey enthusiast I am no single malt snob! Most of the whiskies I drink are Deluxe Blended Scotch's but this stuff is woeful. An unpleasant off wine nose, a taste that suggests the over-use of average quality casks and not much taste other than a trace of caramel and then a bitter finish. Very disappointing. Now for £12.70 from Tesco I wasn't expecting something incredible but certainly something of quality for its price range. It simply isn't comparable to the not much more expensive (but excellent) BNJ, and similarly priced Grants, Hankey Bannister and Dewars White Label (and they are all a bit rough round the edges). Even the new Black Bottle, which is no way near as good as the old but is still a good quality product (and from the same distillery as Leader) beats this poor effort. Avoid IMHO and spend an extra £4-5 on BNJ!
