Clan MacGregor Blended Scotch Whisky

Today I am reviewing Clan MacGregor Blended Scotch Whisky. I know it has a cheesy name and took me by surprise as well. This is another of my happy hour findings lol. As the saying goes "What's in a name?" so I took the liberty to try this bad boy before judging it.
This whisky honors the Macgregors- one of Scotland's oldest clans. Their renowned history dates back to the 14th century and the bottle prominently displays the Lion head's crest, the symbol of clan chief, Sir Malcom MacGregor. Alright ...enough of the culture and history, lets get to the best part - my tasting info πŸ˜ƒ

Vital Stats-
Clan MacGregor Blended Scotch Whisky
Price- $8.99 for 1 liter bottle
Age-  Not defined
ABV- 40%
Type- Blended Scotch
Distiller- Clan MacGregor Distillery
Awards Won- None, However it is happy hour approved 😜

Tasting info-
Serving glass- Shot glass
Serving style- Neat

Appearance- Light golden
Aroma- Apart from the light fruity and subtle grassy aroma couldn't identify any other aromas
Flavor-  Fruity and mellow taste
Body- Medium Bodied
Finish- Not so smooth but does linger in mouth for a brief moment

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
For the price point it is a suitable golden pour for the happy hour moments πŸ˜ƒ. I actually enjoyed it and is good for large parties since it doesn't break the bank. Of course you can't expect it to have complex notes like a single malt but a fairly balanced and enjoyable blended whisky..It is value for money. Have it on the rocks or with club soda as well.

Time for some drunk humor
An Irishman goes into a bar in America and orders three whiskeys. The barman asks: "Would it be better if I put all three shots in one glass?"
The Irishman replies: "No! I have two other brothers back at home, so every time I come into the pub, I order a shot for them both"
The following week, the Irishman orders just two drinks.
The barman asks "Did something happen to one of your brothers?" "Oh no", replies the Irishman. "I just decided to quit drinking". πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

CheersπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ. Enjoy Responsibly.
