White Horse Blended Scotch Whisky
White Horse is a blended Scotch whisky brand based out of Edinburgh, Scotland. A massively popular brand in the old days, the bran has fallen into obscurity over the past few decades, yet nevertheless managed to retain its good quality.
The White Horse brand was initially produced by a man named James Logan Mackie in the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. Mackie debuted in the whisky industry as a merchant of the spirit, making considerable strides in the business and eventually choosing to venture into the whisky blending business.
First blended in 1884, the White Horse brand of Scotch whiskies are said to have acquired the name from the Mackie family owned White Horse Inn in the city of Edinburgh.
James Logan Mackie’s enterprise grew quickly, allowing them to invest their capital towards ensuring a steady supply of source whiskies for their proprietary blends. To this measure, the White Horse brand owners, James Logan Mackie & Co. acquired a portion of the stake in Lagavulin Distillery situated in the Island of Islay.
Over the years, due to the success of the White Horse whisky, the company adopted the name White Horse Distilleries in 1924. White Horse Distillers was acquired by the Distillers Company Ltd. which was later acquired by Diageo LLC and dissolved in 2010.
White Horse is a blended Scotch whisky, meaning it contains both malt and grain whiskies married together to achieve the end product. It is said to carry a 40% malt content, with whiskies from Islay distillery Lagavulin making up a good proportion of the White Horse blend.
White Horse carries an alcohol strength of 40% ABV, the standard limit for Scotch whiskies.
White Horse has won a few awards for their whisky over the years including;
Gold Outstanding at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in the Scotch Whisky: Blended Category in 2014.
Gold at The Scotch Whisky Masters in the Blended: Standard category in 2015.

Dalmore 12yr Malt Scotch
"The Dalmore 12 year old, with its intricate aromas and flavours, is recognised as a whisky with character far beyond its age. This was Andrew Mackenzie’s original masterpiece and stood apart from the norm of the day. At a time when it was standard practise to mature whisky for no more than 6 years, Andrew Mackenzie demonstrated his pioneering character by doubling the maturation period. His boldness truly paid off, The Dalmore 12 year old still stands apart as an exceptional whisky today, as it did then. Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, the spirit is then divided for its final flourish. One half remains in the bourbon barrels, while the other is transferred to exclusive 30 year old Gonzalez Byass Matusalem oloroso sherry butts before they are reunited to create this phenomenal whisky.
