Scotch Whisky - Blended

Johnnie Walker Red Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Full of youthful daring, but with enough stamina to last all night (this means that you and your buddy will probably drink the whole bottle).

Johnnie Walker Red Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
The key here is how it performs dilute where the smoothness is accentuated but without eliminating the defining energy.

Johnnie Walker The Royal Route
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Not unpleasant but not much character. And that cereal sweetness is cloying.

Jon, Mark and Robbo's The Fresh Fruity One
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Best drunk – and meant to be drunk – mixed. Try with ginger ale, it really works!

Jon, Mark and Robbo's The Rich Spicy One
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The best of the three. A hint of The Macallan?

Jon, Mark and Robbo's The Smoky Peaty One
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Good as far as it goes, but pulls its punches.

Jon, Mark and Robbo's The Smooth Sweeter One
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A curious whisky. Not sure where it's coming from, or going to.

Label 5 Classic Black
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Pretty simple.

Label 5 Finest Blend 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Seems young and not quite integrated.

Langs Select 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A light, refreshing and aromatic blend. To be enjoyed with light food such as seafood salad or trifle. No water please.

Lauder's 15 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The nose is sweeter than the palate but this is a well structured dram. Water kills it though.

Lindores Abbey 'Angels Share'
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Lots of cereal-grain character. Seemed dry at first, but developed dessert sweetness – especially with water.

Living Cask Volume XI
Blended - Scotland - 57.00%
7 A loud lad whose tone needs softening.

Lombard Gold Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Fresh, summery and very easy drinking. Nothing to dislike here, at all.

Lombard Old Masters
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A whisky that has plenty going on but stops short at being exceptional in any of its merits. Perfect as an introduction to the category.

Lombard Scotch Whisky Ltd Dhoon Glen
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A pleasant blend. Rich cereal profile. Good balance.

Lord Elcho 15 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Balanced and well put together, with enough bite to punch through.

Master of Malt 8 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Cleanliness, style and substance. A wee cracker!

Matisse 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Quite a complex blend but it takes time to deliver. Well-balanced. Again it would have displayed more at a higher strength.

Matisse 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Enjoyable. More-ish. Perfect for lacunae in a busy schedule. Those leather sofa moments in hotel lobbies. Sip it while munching cocktail snacks.

Matisse 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A good mixing blend, though this too fades a little.

Matisse Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
For those with a sweeter tooth.

Matisse Old Blended Scotch
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A well balanced dram but it would have gained more being bottled at a higher strength.

Matisse Old Blended Scotch Whisky
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
6 “Old Blended/3 Years Old” Huh?

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Royal Salute 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 In the rich, luxurious, style, this is a long established favourite of mine.
