Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/08/2016

Appearance

Clear, pale golden amber.

Aroma

Vanilla fudge, butterscotch and toffee with light white pepper and faint desiccated and toasted coconut.

Taste

Surprisingly full-bodied mouthfeel with lightly spiced dry pencil shaving oak balancing rich vanilla fudge, butterscotch and sweet desiccated coconut. Enlivened by cracked black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Dry and spicy with pencil shaving oak, butterscotch and toffee.

Overall

There are other grain Scotch whiskies that we prefer, but none offer such a combination of packaging, price and liquid. Clubman is a masterclass in product, packaging and branding by Diageo. We await the marketing campaign with interest. Clubman is a very different whisky to the comparatively sweet, silky original Haig Club – it’s dry, woody and spicy. Try mixing the two together 50/50 and you’ll have a whisky that’s sweet on the palate and finishes dry and woody. Why were we drawn to try this mix? Because we love the original Haig Club for daring to be so un-whisky-like and find the woody notes in the Clubman a tad too muscular. However, for whisky drinkers – Clubman is much more a traditionally styled Scotch whisky.
