Haig Club is a new innovation from the House of Haig, Scotland’s oldest grain whisky dynasty and makers of Haig Blended Scotch Whisky and Dimple Scotch Whisky. Built on 400 years of distilling history, the House of Haig can trace its whisky producing roots back to the seventeenth century. In 1824 John Haig established the Cameronbridge Distillery and it was there that he pioneered the art of producing grain whisky in continuous Coffey and Stein stills – an invention which laid the foundations for the growth and success of the modern Scotch Whisky industry. Haig Club is born of that Haig family legacy of innovation and excellence in whisky creation.
Haig Club has been crafted using a unique process that combines grain whisky from three cask types. The spirit has been drawn from first and refill ex Bourbon casks and some from rejuvenated casks. The colour is a rich gold. The bouquet shows lemon, peach and apricot with sweeter orange fondant, with spicy notes of cardamom and clove. The palate is a rich toffee, mint, baked banana bread and ginger bread warmth that spirals over your tongue. The unctuous mouthfeel is long and has surprising depth. It has no age statement but has a great balance of youthful vibrancy and depth. More-ish!
