Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Claymore Blended Whisky to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

The Claymore Bottling Note

The term "claymore" is from the Scottish Gaelic for "great sword", and it's an ancient style of Scottish sword used by the Highlanders. This wonderful blended whisky was created in its honour.

Claymore Blended Whisky Reviews

Decent blended scotch. Enough said

Got this for £14 from a convenience shop on a Sunday after noon. It’s a decent blended scotch whisky. Nothing special, but nothing bad either. As a seasoned whisky drinker I was pleased with my purchase. Enjoyable neat, unlike some other blends.

Strong alcohol taste

Opened a bottle that must have been standing on the shelf at my parents' home for at least 15 years. Too much alcohol taste. Enough said I guess. Good for mixer.

top tasting whiskey

i agree with last post it goes down too easily, still it is something you can, enjoy and is a pleasure to drink, whilst intoxicates you, smoothly and satisfyingly till the end. it is a desirable whisky that delivers a quality taste and stands out amongst the crowd, with pleasure always gauranteed

This is a smooth easy drinking whisky, it was on offer at my local shop, and is now a favourite. The only trouble is it goes down too easy!

Bring back the old blend.

Used to like it , but the new bottle shape appears to contain a slightly different blend, which has too much of a caramel after taste for my liking.
Still good value.

17th April 2018

Exceptional value I say

Strong nose of caramel, ripe bananas, a hint of peat smoke along with some cashew nuts, very sweet and quite smooth in texture! Given the price I paid, I think it offered exceptional value! Recommend to drink it neat and slightly chilled, delicious!

Good whisky, cheap price. Maybe need some soda water taste is better.

bring back the original. please.

It is'nt a patch on the original scotch whisky. Blending it has made it harsh and not so mellow. Stop blending it!

When I was in the Army my friends and I would yell CLAYMORE every time we drank a shot. You know nothing gets you going like a Claymore Mine. Anyway, the taste for me I drink it and think of some of the most happy go lucky days of my life. And where I am now I cannot purchase the Claymore Blended Whiskey, so finding it online I am going to order a number of bottles. And then ship them to my friends. Maybe I will even sneak a bottle into Saudi Arabia just for old time sake. "CLAYMORE!!!!!" it tastes just like I remember it.

Lacking any whisky or alcohol

Bought some of this for medicinal purposes. Used near 1/2 a bottle to make a large hot toddy, only to taste the honey and lemon, thought I'd left the whisky out at first.
I'm going to buy a hydrometer to see if there is and detectable trace of alcohol or whisky, I'm guessing about 2% proof. 40%, no way.

I'd never tasted Claymore before; I'm more of an Islay girl, loving the peat and smoke of their single malts. However, my son-in-law opened this bottle, which someone had given him over 10 years ago (God only knows how long that fellow had it). It had a different label from this one; it was absolutely delicious. I really enjoyed it! How long ago was the label changed? Plan on ordering a number of bottles. Many thank and happy holidays!

Mixer only

I bought some tonight as the bottle looked pretty good and I had not heard if it before and thought perhaps it had been on the shelf for a while and the price hadn't been altered for years, well perhaps I was correct and there was a good reason for it. Very strong alcoholic taste, have put it aside for mixing with cola when the mood takes me

3rd November 2016

Mixer only cheap whiskey

Concur with previous review about the strong aroma of almost medicinal alcohol--not the aroma of a rich whiskey you'd be hoping for. This is a classic get what you pay for bargain whiskey that is unpleasant straight or even on ice--it will stand up to a mixer and makes a passable "highball" but as a stand-alone drink is rough and unappealing. On a level with other bargain brands like Whyte and MacKay and John Barr but a cut below even Dewars.

Strong taste, and not the good kind.

Blended, but smells/tastes strongly of alcohol. not much smokiness, and a bit too sweet. Cheap in price.

3rd July 2016

Very rich in flavour

This is pretty good if you want to die. Contains big doses of methanol. Made me lost my eye sight. Now I have to use black glasses and white stick. My guide dog has to write this review for me thanks a lot claymore for pimping my eyes.

It s a blend, not extraordinary but right for the 3 gbp I paid for. It s still quite a nice affair compared to other blends. Bitter, alcohol taste, smokey.

3rd June 2016

It's ok

I'm having some tonight, it's ok but i just can't seem to drink it strate, i tried, the alchohol is to strong and it's messing up the flavour. With some ice and a little Dr. Pepper it's ok, but hell it's really cheap so 3 out of 5 for me.

off licence crapp

The only saving grace is that is not sweet,rough blend, prepare for a stomach beating,its like coleman stove fluid with oak essence

Smokey Oak

Nice subtle flavour, with a lovely smokey oak taste to it.

5th October 2015

Quite superb value, full-bodied, nice balance

Picked this up at Carrefour and was very pleasantly surprised given the modest price ... excellent blend, very easy to sip straight, surprisingly full-bodied, very well-balanced in flavour, not over-sweet and with a hint of smoke and character ... very satisfying daily Scotch sipper

Forgot to rate it, my rating reflects the fact it's a blend and it's cheap. Compared to a single malt it would be a solid 1, I haven't tried a malt that I would rate below this... but for the fact it's a blend and it's cheap, it gets a 3 and half, it's high up there in then blends, never had Money's Shoulder so I can't say how it'd compare to a quality blend, but better than most of the regular blends.

Not much of a fan of blends, not being a snob, if find most blends are a bit too sweet for me... I haven't tried that many, but most of the big UK brands seem to go that way (In my humbled opinion). I have recently moved to the UAE and I have a local alcohol store that is stocked in the "finest" Indian blends, I wanted to give on of them a try as they're priced at about £3 for two 75cl bottles, but they guy in the shop said that I wouldn't enjoy them and to try Claymore which is priced at £8.50 for two litre bottles, I took him up on the recommendation and have never looked back, it's by no means a fine whiskey, but it is a lot more enjoyable than most of then blends I have tried... although I have to agree with people saying it's a little rough, it's not a delicate refined taste, but it is tasty and there is no sweetness there. It'll do as a stop gap while they money is still being spent on furniture!

Love this whisky. Very easy to drink and lovely on the palate.

5th October 2014

smells and tastes like alcohol ... which I mean that you find not at the bar but in a hospital. With both the nose and the palate there's this overwhelming alcoholic smell and taste (like vodka but less clean) that effectively dispels whatever whisky-ish after the first few seconds. I wonder what they've blended this from.

awsm wiskey, i had tasted for many years really love it ....

Whelst, I kinda like whisky, and whiskey, but Claymore is smoothe, clean, and uninhibited. It delivers. But, I am a blended fan. I kinda take to Islay malt, but hey, a dram or two, sways the heart and soul. Claymore, I could sell to Scotsmen.
A story. Whenst visiting Edinburgh, I asked in a bar? Have you a pool table?
The reply. "We don't play pool here laddie, We drink"
Arhhh. The Scot. Bless.

I live in Spain and have tasted The Claymore. I would like to know if this Whisky is being imported into Spain and if so by whom. I have a distribution company having been here for 35 years I may well be interested in distributing your product here in the South (Marbella area)
I look forward to your comments
