Description

“You can take a White Horse anywhere”.

A very famous and important bottler that sparks quite a bit of interest for malt drinks by being the owners of the Lagavulin distillery.

And Craigellachie and Glen Elgin and Port Dundas and for a short time Hazelburn in Campbeltown.

Founded in the 1880’s, taken over by the Distillers Company in 1927 but the company was finally closed down by Diageo in 2010.

I’m also fond of the brand as well, because my dad used to drink it and as a kid, I just loved the small plastic white horse that hung from the neck of the bottle.

And next time you visit us at Spier & Wright, take a look at the big old White Horse sign we have in the shop.  It was kindly donated by Mr Bob Perry of Burra and whisky lover.

This version, called the “newspaper label”, probably comes from the 1950’s and of importance, it was bottled in Australia!  Expect some degree of smokiness.

From WhiskyBase of a similar bottling, “Slightly thin and yet slightly oily, fine peat, slightly sooty and ashen, a lot of very fine salt, a little green apple and coastal fog (in two respects, ie mist on the coast and the aniseed liqueur), mild and slightly bitter”.

NB: Condition of bottle and packaging.
