Scotch Whisky - Blended

Label 5 Blended Scotch Whisky Gold Heritage
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 This is afternoon tea. Not quite at the poshest restaurant in town, but the one next door. Slightly cheaper, no waiting time but equally as good.

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

Label 5 Extra Rare 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 I had a sneaky feeling whilst nosing this that the oak would be too over-powering for the palate. I was correct in that assumption.

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!

Master of Malt 10 Years Old 1st Edition
Blended - Scotland - 47.50%
8 It lost a few points due to its simplistic palate but apart from that it was very enjoyable.

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?

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

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Royal Salute 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 After dinner, I would usually think of a malt, but have long enjoyed the unashamed luxuriousness of this blend. This example seems fractionally less voluptuous than I remember, but my memories may be ...

Royal Salute 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Antique shop aromas. Oak and fruit locked in a sensual embrace.

Royal Salute 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Ripeness and weight is the key here. A gentle monarch.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Royal Salute 50 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A work of craftsmanship, elegance and its own style.
