Review: Old St. Andrews Clubhouse Blend Scotch Whisky

Share

Golf and Scotch go together like hand in glove. Another thing they share in common: Novelties.

Old St. Andrews is unabashedly a novelty whisky, packaged in various fanciful bottles. This one, the “Clubhouse Blend,” comes in an oversized golf ball. One of the target markets for this whisky, per the company, is a “romantic idealist” looking for a “curiosity.”

So there’s that.

What’s inside is almost incidental to the packaging. It’s blended Scotch. Young stuff, not much to it. Caramel colored, to be sure. Heavy grain on the nose. Malty, lightly hot body. Vaguely sweet with citrus notes, but nothing overly distinctive or memorable. Rustic on the finish, with some heat. If you like the golf ball decanter I guess you can always fill it with something else, right?

80 proof. On sale beginning September 2012.
