Haig Gold Label Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)

SCOTLAND
$49.99 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

Safe, reliable and consistent, as well as one of the oldest of Scotch whisky brands, Haig Gold label is an unpretentious blend with a high malt content (around 40%) and an ease of drinking that's made it one of the best-selling Scotch whiskies in the world. Its popularity declined briefly in the 1970s, but anyone who's tasted it recently agrees that current owners, Diageo, have reinvigorated this old standard significantly. Jim Murray for one. Review below. Expect a hint of pepper from the malt as it takes hold in your mouth followed by a whisper of peat on the finish.

Tasting note: Deep polished copper. Nice lift with spicy cinnamon oak, vanilla, sweet malt, toasty cereals and dilute honeycomb. Good depth. Medium to full bodied. A semi sweet, juicy, textural style with bracing spices and gentle oiliness to finish. Medium length. Reminiscent of Black Douglas from a decade ago. Suits mixing. 40% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... What had before been pretty standard stuff has upped the complexity by an impressive distance. 40% Alc./Vol.
