William Lawsons Blend
How many of you have in the past gone on holiday and drank the local beer such as San Miquel, Tiger or perhaps even Tennents? Then have come home and bought a pack to bring back that holiday memory only to be disappointed as it never tastes the same. Well I suppose the same can be said for spirits and I always try a whisky usually a blend when I am abroad. I love the names of these blends have and in the past through my ignorance I would have passed them by due to the twee names attached to them. I am sure everyone has come across them.
Last year I drank William Lawsons Blended Whisky. In the sun and in the evening I really enjoyed this whisky and with a very attractive price. So the test came when I bought a bottle when I came back home.
William Lawson has a high malt content with the base malt being MacDuff/Glen Deveron Distillery under the John Dewar/Bacardi umbrella. To most people in the UK this is not a brand that is seen on a regular basis in supermarkets, but in the past it has had recognition by the International Wine and Spirit Research as being an elite brand accounting for over 2 million 9 litre cases worldwide in one calendar year. So a popular choice by many and that still includes me, a lovely whisky to have at anytime.
Creamy with hints of spice and dried fruit.
A lovely hit of malt whisky, dried fruit with a lovely oak flavour, a small hint of sweetness coming through.
A good malt ending with a little kick of the grain to finish off.
