White Horse blended whisky has tradition: it was first produced in 1861. White Horse also got the 'Blended Whisky of the Year' in 2007 Whisky Bible by Jim Murray.
White Horse is owned by Diageo and apparently Lagavulin is the key factor in it. Okay for a blend, a malty one. But still, robustly blended so not as good as I expected. The fruitiness in a robust palate wasn't "my cup of tea".
I can still imagine people liking this one more than my score may indicate, because it has character.
Nose: Very malty. Oak, peat and fruits.
Taste: Malty and fruity. Robust and sweet with hints of honey.
Finish: Fairly long. Spicy oak and vanilla.
Balance: Quality blend. Good balance and even much complexity, especially for a blended whisky. Still, the palate isn't for my taste.
