First produced in 1861, White Horse is a young blend claimed to contain Lagavulin, which is famous for its sooty character in the Islay region.
White Horse (Scottish Blend, 40% abv)
Nose: Salt and citrus in addition to medicinal and synthetic fragrances. Along with very light soot, I also got a smell that I can say like vinegar. Cool and oily.
Palate: It has a warmer and more spicy character on the palate compared to the nose. Salt, moss and peat are in the foreground. Pharmaceutical synthetic flavors are still effective, but I can say that they are more balanced. Although I get very light fruity aromas, they are not very persistent on the palate. It is easy to drink, almost as if water has been added.
Finish: Short to medium length. High amount of salt, spice and light soot.
Overall: Although not one of my favorite blends, White Horse is a classic that should definitely be tried with its salty, sooty and oily character. I can say that it is successful in terms of price-performance.

I drink white horse from time to time because I like the taste of peat and soot. Since salt is dominant in it, I also use jameson original at a rate of 1/3 of a cup. It's a nice mix. I advise?
