Proof66 Notes

Label 5 Scotch is a line of blended scotch under the ownership of the French-based Martiniquaise. They use a number of scotches but mention specifically the Speyside-located Glen Moray distillery. The scotch is blended at an undisclosed location in Bathgate, Scotland. The Classic Black expression is said to be "fruity" and "sweet" (characteristics often associated with Speyside scotch) and bottled at both 80 and 86 proof (this listing is for the 80 proof expression).

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute called it a "lighter style" whisky that will be a "crowd pleaser."

I tried this neat for the first time and I was very disappointed. Unpleasant smell and harsh taste. There is nothing great to remember about this scotch. I tried it on the rocks and found it drinkable as every other whisky in this price range. I do not recommend it, even to a newbie, cause they can get wrong impression how decent blended scotch should taste like.

Pretty standard blend flavors, but one aspect of the profile that is unique is that it has a spicy/peppery note that I very much like. The only liquor I've had that has that similar note is the Landy VS Cognac. This is a very good blend, especially considering the price.
