Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Woodsman to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

The Woodsman Bottling Note

The Woodsman is a blended Scotch whisky from Whyte & Mackay (owners of Dalmore, Fettercairn, Jura and Tamnavulin), designed for use in cocktails and mixed drinks. Particularly oak-y, as you might expect from the name, with plenty of vanilla and nutty malt notes in tow. Nothing to do with Justin Timberlake's album Man of the Woods.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sandalwood, honey, almond slices and sawdust.

Palate: Creamy vanilla, ginger root, slight grain sweetness.

Finish: A touch of smoke underneath spearmint and cinnamon.

Woodsman Reviews

Really horrible

One of the worst whiskies I've ever drunk. Awful.

6th May 2020

If cheap, then cheerful.

Took a punt on this as it was under £20, not bad, especially for a cheap blend. Sweet on the palate and no harshness. The flavours are quite timid but pleasant enough, the aftertaste however, lets it down. A decent utilitarian whisky, but not for the RRP.

Very true of a good blend

Great whisky

25th March 2020

Good nice whisky

Very good whisky... 90% of recommended...

8th February 2020

Love it

Gorgeous and smooth, pure sipping whisky and escapism..

Take it or leave it

Mild and not as harsh as some reasonably priced rivals. Not overwhelmed but I have had worse.
Not bad value if price is discounted, if not, don't bother.

27th January 2020

Don't bother

Dull as dull can be. A thin, empty whisky which, drunk straight, you'd be forgiven for thinking had already been over-watered. Mixed, it tastes like whatever you've mixed it with, but with added musty bitterness and a faint aroma of phenol wafting above it.
I was given it, and was disappointed. At least I didn't buy it; then I'd be pretty angry.

Honestly, between this and a 1.5l of own-brand cooking scotch, I'd go a Glenasda every time.

Pleasant whisky for price.

A nice pleasant whisky with a dash of water, bought for £18 at Asda, at £31 the price quoted would expect a reasonable single malt.

One for cocktails - in a good way

Not one to recommend neat but it is, as intended, a great blended mixer with a good body like JW Red (and unlike wishy washy Grouse expressions). Going way beyond highballs it works exceptionally well in a diverse range of Scotch cocktails where rich caramel and nutty notes (totally absent neat) surprisingly appear. It's a whole different spirit mixed with ginger, spices, citrus, syrups, amaros and liqueurs. Even the maple and orange Old Fashioned they themselves suggest is right on it. They knew exactly what they were doing with this one and where to pitch it.

Neither one thing nor the other: not for drinking straight (perhaps with a very little water), and cheaper but good enough brands (especially when discounted like Waitrose's current Grants Triple Wood for £13) are fine for mixing with ginger ale or coke.

20th October 2019

Worth a shout at the discounted price

Bought today for £ 18 in Waitrose, well worth it, though would be disappointed if I had paid £ 30.

18th October 2019

I've had worse

Not a whisky to drink straight, the aftertaste honestly reminds me of the smell of paint thinner. Acceptable in a mixed drink but I'm probably not buying it again unless it's very cheap.

9th June 2019

Alright for £20

Reasonable on the pallet, nice vanilla and inoffensive. No real linger like most blends but I bought at £20 so cant complain.

4th June 2019

Versatile & Great Value

I've has this with ice, with Ginger Beer and in an Old Fashioned, and it works really well in them all. Great value.
